St. Thomas a'Becket Catholic Church

Share Your Time and Talent

St. Thomas a'Becket is looking for parishioners to share their time, talent and expertise.  We have dozens of ministries that need your help.  Take a look at the many offerings below and sign up for any that interest you.  We will pass on your contact information to the ministry coordinators so that they can invite you to participate.

 

Ministries that involve contact with children, the elderly or the disabled require compliance with the Archdiocese Safe Environments policies.  (See http://www.abecket.org/safe-environments for full details.)  If a ministry has a * by it, you are required to submit a background check form and to take a Protecting God's Children class before you begin.  This is to ensure the safety of our children and other vulnerable populations.
