The 16th Sunday
in Ordinary Time

“The kingdom of heaven
is like a mustard seed
that a person took
and sowed in a field.
It is the smallest of all the seeds,
yet when full-grown
it is the largest of plants.
It becomes a large bush,
and the ‘birds of the sky come
and dwell in its branches.”

PARISH MISSION STATEMENT

We are Holy Family - St. Thomas Aquinas parish,
an Eucharistic community committed to the
traditions of the Roman Catholic church.

We embrace our Baptismal call
to evangelize, educate and serve
as taught by the Gospel of Jesus Christ
and through His sacraments.

We strive to reach out and offer hope to our
Park Slope neighborhood and beyond.

We invite you to come and visit us.

For over a hundred years,
our beautiful church building
has been an oasis of peace
amid the bustle of our urban environment.

The doors of our church are open ALL DAY
as a symbol that ALL are welcomed
to enter and pray.

A church however is just a building.
The real church is the many people
and organizations
who make the parish community at
Holy Family & St. Thomas Aquinas
such a special place.

Please visit our other pages
and discover the
many different facets of our parish.

   
   

 

 

PLEASE PRAY FOR PRIESTS!

Dear Lord,
we pray that the Blessed Mother
wrap her mantle around Your priests
and through her intercession
strengthen them for their ministry.

We pray that Mary will guide Your Priests
to follow her own words,

"Do whatever He tells you" (John 2:5).
May your priests have the heart of St. Joseph,
Mary's most chaste spouse.

May the Blessed Mother's own pierced heart
inspire them to embrace all
who suffer at the foot of the cross.
May Your priests be holy,
filled with the fire of Your love
seeking nothing but Your greater glory
and the salvation of souls. AMEN!

Saint John Vianney, pray for us!

Even though the Year For Priests has ended - we continue to join in prayer for our beloved priests who bring the Sacrament of His Body and Blood to us. We pray that the Blessed Mother wrap her mantle around our priests and through her intercession strengthen them for their ministry.

 And I will give you pastors according to my own heart, and they shall feed you with knowledge and doctrine. -Jeremiah 3:15

The priest has the key of the heavenly treasures; it is he who opens the door; he is the steward of the good God, the distributor of His wealth. -The Cure of Ars, St. John Vianney

St. John Mary Vianney, pray for us and all our priests!

We pray especially for the priests of
Holy Family - St. Thomas Aquinas Parish

ORA POR NUESTROS SACERDOTES

Señor Jesús
te rogamos que tu Santísima Madre
cubra con su manto a los sacerdotes y,
por su intercesion, les de fuerza para
ejercer su ministero.

Pedimos que María quíe a tus sacerdotes
para que sigan las mismas palabras de ella
"Hagan lo que él les diga" (Juan 2:5), Que les
enseñe a tener el mismo corazón que tenía
San José, esposo castísimo de María.

Que el corazón trapasado de la Santísma
Virgen les inspire a recibir a todos los que
sufren al pie de la cruz. Que sean
sacerdotes santos, encendidos con el fuego
de tu amor que sólo buscan tu mayor honor
y gloria y la salvació de las almas. AMÉN

¡San Juan Vianney, ruega por nosotros!
