PATRONAL FEAST DAY

The Feast of Saint Thomas falls on December 21, in late Advent just before Christmas. This makes it difficult to sufficiently celebrate our patron saint on the proper date. To remedy that problem, beginning in 2016 we also celebrate our patron and our parish on the same day that we welcome back the full Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys.

Please note that the Feast of Saint Thomas is still celebrated on December 21, as well, unless December 21 falls on a Sunday, in which case it is the Fourth Sunday of Advent. When December 21 does not fall on a Sunday, we typically observe the feast day with services in the Chantry Chapel, and, if possible, with a Festal Eucharist at 5:30pm at the High Altar.
