Welcome to STAY at St. Thomas
We worship at 7:30 p.m. every Sunday—join us!

STAY is Washington, D.C.'s largest community of Catholic young adults

Hat and Glove Drive
As the weather cools down and we begin to dress in layers, many are not as fortunate to have enough clothing. This fall, STAY will be collecting hats and gloves (all sizes) for the homeless of D.C. You can bring gloves and hats in for donation to St. Thomas Apostle (by St. Anthony's statue) or pass on a monetary donation for STAY leaders to purchase brand new hats and gloves for $5 (use the link below). Questions? Please contact Peter Brusoe, STAY's Service Chair (pwbrusoe@gmail.com).

Embracing the Future of our Church
St. Thomas Apostle Capital Campaign 

STAY is fortunate to call St. Thomas Apostle home every Sunday evening, and many more nights throughout the year. Help take care of our home through the church's special capital campaign, Embracing the Future of our Church. 

All parishioners should have received an envelope in the mail to participate in the journey to raise much-needed funds for the church. If you have not, please contact the parish rectory by calling (202) 234-1488. The campaign will last for a couple years so please consider how you can make an ongoing contribution.
