Welcome to
St. Thomas the Apostle

Dear Friends,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St. Thomas Parish, a faith filled community by the sea. Everyone is welcome!

This year we are celebrating the year of the Family. We are encouraging all families, large or small, to join together in prayer and worship.  We invite you to join one of our many ministries here at St. Thomas.  For more information, please browse our website, the bulletin or stop by the Parish Office.

Jesus tells us, “When two or more are gathered in my name, I am among you.”

Looking forward to seeing you,
Fr.  Bill Vandegrift


This Tuesday, people of all faiths will gather at St. Thomas for prayer, chat, eat and drink. It is a Brigantine way of saying “thank you” to God and to each other for all the blessings we experienced over the year.

Simply make yourself available for the fun which will begin at 7pm in the Church and will continue for as long as it takes in St. Philip Hall.


For about 15 months now, Rosary for peace in our hearts, our homes, country and the whole world have been said every Tuesday here at St. Thomas. In the summer, we gather to pray at the grotto of our Lady by the parking lot. When it is cold or raining, we pray in the church.

We do have fun too…    some days with cookies, coffee or pizza! Attendance is very good. Just come and experience love in action.

If you ever even faintly thought of becoming a Catholic and did not know where and how to deal with it, I guarantee you, you are on the right page. We read from prophet Isaiah, “The Lord waits for you to come to him, so he can show you his love and compassion. For the Lord is a faithful God.” (Isaiah 30:18) Cfr.Our Sunday Visitor.

We too are eagerly waiting for you here at St.Thomas, a friendly, welcoming, non-judging parish. Just call us on 609-266-2123. You will never be alone anymore. You will find people who will share the same faith with you, pray together with you, celebrate joys and grieve together with you in case of a loss; and offer support and receive strength together. Just call and we talk. Welcome.


Time and again at St.Thomas, a pleasant surprise is around the corner. Just come to church on Nov.30 with some little change in your pocket. After mass, go to St.Philip Hall for breakfast of your lifetime served by the brother Knights.

These dedicated, hard working and generous guys will serve you the cheapest yet delicious meal with a smile. Whatever money they make from the pancake breakfast is ploughed back in the community through their several charity drives.

The Knights make life at St.Thomas easy and I am proud to belong to this Church and be a member of the K o C.
