We run a Sacramental Program for children in the parish who do not attend Catholic schools. The programs run during school term times and usually last 8 – 10 weeks.
The Parish needs more Catechists! If you are interested in this ministry – even if you have no training – please contact Silvia Kinder on 0429 065 842.

Readers prepare and read the readings of the Mass and also welcome and greet parishioners beforehand. It is a great way to meet fellow parishioners!
Parishioners who would like to become involved in reading or greeting at the three Sunday Masses should contact Maureen Gardner on [email protected].
Please contact Maureen to join the Readers Ministry.
St Augustine tells us that ‘Those who sing, pray twice’ !
Our Parish has a vibrant music ministry serving the Parish liturgies. We have choirs at the Sunday Masses 7:30am and 9:30am. We invite anyone who is interested and able to join these choirs or create a choir at any of our other Masses.

Circle of Friends is an 18+ social group for neurodivergent young adults who would like to meet other people in a social setting. We meet at the last Friday of each month in St. Thomas the Apostle Parish Centre, from 6.30pm – 8.30 pm.
We have a meal and engage in activities such as board or card games, drawing, quoits and boules.
A $10.00 donation is asked to cover costs for food and beverage.
If you are interested to come along and join in the fun, please contact Louise Davenport 0428 752 913.
The parish has had an active Conference of the St Vincent de Paul Society since 2005, carrying out the Society’s mission of helping the poor and marginalised in our community.
It does this by members being rostered on duty for one evening a week to respond to calls for assistance which go through a central call centre. Our area of responsibility runs from Mt Claremont/Claremont through to Mosman Park.
The assistance provided is most often a food hamper which we provide from a pantry in the presbytery. We can also assist by paying a proportion of a utility bill for example so the supply is not cut off, paying vehicle registration if use of the vehicle is essential for work, or providing furniture. We collect bread and pastries from two bakeries and do a weekly run to about 30 clients
All this costs money so we are very grateful for donations of food or Coles/Woolworths vouchers to enable our clients to buy fresh food or personal items.
We meet fortnightly to review our assistance and plan our extra activities such as our annual quiz night fundraiser, distribution of Christmas hampers, and the BBQs we provide for our clients at Christmas and Easter.
We are always looking for new members so if you are interested please contact our President Henry Simmons on 0417985992 or our
Treasurer Leo McManus on 0417414951
