On behalf of the Parish Family of Saint Thomas of Aquin, I welcome you to the online portion of our Parish.
We are a Roman Catholic Community of believers in Jesus Christ, in the Diocese of Paterson, New Jersey, under the leadership of our Bishop, the Most Reverend Arthur J. Serratelli, STD, SSL, DD.
We are located in the lovely small community of Ogdensburg, New Jersey nestled between Sparta and Franklin in bucolic Sussex County, New Jersey. If you are planning on moving into the Ogdensburg area, I invite you to consider Saint Thomas of Aquin as your parish home.
It is my hope that the information you will gather from these pages will enable you to know better who we are as a Parish Community and how we work to proclaim the message of the Lord Jesus in our midst.
Whether you are a member of our community, someone new to our community, or someone just surfing the net, you are welcome to come and join us as a loving family who gathers to give thanks and praise to our all-loving God who directs and guides our days.
I invite you to look through the pages of our website and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting us at our Parish Office on Monday, Wednesday or Friday between the hours of 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM a nd it will be our pleasure to assit you.
In His Love,
Reverend John P. Pilipie
Our Church is Handicap Lift Accessible
Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees you sees God. Show us your face and we will be saved.
You are the visible face of the invisible Father, of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy: let the Church be your visible face in the world.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord, and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind.
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy; you who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.
~ Pope Francis
