St. Thomas Men’s Society

Thoughts on the St. Thomas Men’s Society from Father Steve Zabrocki

Mens Society LogoThe men of the St. Thomas Men’s Society (formerly called the Holy Name Society) are clearly a gift to the people of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish. It did not take me long to recognize the significance of this group for us.

At 6:30 a.m. on a quarterly basis nearly 50 men gather for breakfast, fellowship and a reflection upon the spiritual life. The Saint Thomas Men’s Society is instrumental in organizing different parish functions that border on being legendary: our parish picnic, Mardi Gras celebration, Mother’s Day breakfast, and many other events.

I am very grateful for them as they help our parish become a parish community. I would encourage the men of our parish to join this group that reverences God in the way it cares for the needs of others in their support of our parish community.
