Welcome to Saint Thomas Aquinas Parish

Mission Statement

We are the faith community of Saint Thomas Aquinas in Derry, NH, dedicated to continuing the mission of Jesus Christ in the Roman Catholic tradition.  We proclaim the Good News, using our time, talent and treasure to reach the new, the wandering, the poor and the unloved.  United in God, we are committed to growth in faith through worship spirituality, outreach, education, and fellowship. Empowered by the Holy Spirit and nourished by Word and Eucharist, we seek a deeper, more personal relationship with Jesus Christ as we passionately share Christ's love with all people.
