Help St. Thomas be more diverse and inclusive of all ethnicity. In order to be successful in reaching this goal, the African American, Asian and Hispanic cultural awareness groups have been formed as part of Parish Life. If you are a member of one of these ethnic groups, or have an interest in any of the groups, we are asking for your participation. We need your input, creative ideas and recommendations on how St. Thomas can be more welcoming and inclusive.
