Community & Parish Ministries



St. Vincent de Paul

It all begins with an idea. Maybe you want to launch a business. Maybe you want to turn a hobby into something more. Or maybe you have a creative project to share with the world. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference.

St Thomas Aquinas is looking for a few good men! The Porters of St. Joseph is a volunteer apostolate with the mission to provide a safe environment at our Church so parishioners can worship God in peace and safety. Do you have a servant’s heart like Christ for His Church? Do you have prior law enforcement, military, security, or medical experience, or just the desire to serve our Lord?
Then the Porters of St. Joseph need you! Email Brian to inquire. All interested will have to be Safe Environment compliant with a full background check.

Linen Ministry

The Cleaning of Altar Linens involves washing and ironing the purificators that are used for wiping the sacred cup during communion, and the towels that are used on the altar by the Priests and the Eucharistic Ministers for washing their hands.

The linens are taken home once a week after the Sunday Masses, and then returned to the sacristy before Mass the following week.

Guadalupanos Ministry

As we share our loving devotion to our Virgen de Guadalupe, who leads us to the Love of Jesus, Christ her son, we strive to be models of commitment and God’s love by praying the Rosary as a group for the sick and at funerals by request, visit the sick and those in need, sell and display roses for the Feasts of the Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of Guadalupe, and host the great celebration of Our Virgen de Guadalupe on December 12th. Our purpose is to promote the Gospel of Christ through the Rosary. As we pray to Jesus through Mary, we gain a deeper knowledge of our faith and of the Doctrine of the Church, as well as a greater understanding of liturgical life. This is a family prayer ministry that includes men, women, and children. Members will work and serve our parish in every way possible so support ideas, projects, and programs in our parish to benefit the community and a fervent evangelization of the Gospel of our Lord.

Contact Mary Lina Luna to join at 623-935-2151 xt 214

Boy Scout Troop 64 and Cub Scout Pack 64

St. Thomas Aquinas Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troop 64 places a strong emphasis on the boy’s duty to God, developing character, instilling good citizenship, and encouraging the boys to become more fit – physically, mentally, and morally. STA 64 offers the traditional Scouting experience and believes in our scouts, their ability to succeed and build relationships with the community. Since 1910, The Boy Scouts Of America has been enriching the lives of young men and families nationwide, playing a vital role in developing a Scouts sense of structure, self-confidence, goal-setting abilities, and sense of adventure.
