Saint Thomas Church is open to the public from 8:30am-6:30pm, Mondays through Fridays, and 10:00am-4:00pm on Saturdays. Our Sunday hours are determined by our service schedule. We hope you will join us for our Monday-Saturday noontime service of Mass in the Chantry Chapel, preceded by Shrine Prayers. We also offer space for Private Prayer in the back of the Nave.

Tours of Saint Thomas

Guided tours occur on most, but not all, Sunday afternoons following the 11am Choral Eucharist, usually starting at about 12:30pm. Check the calendar for dates, keeping in mind that Sunday tours are added to the calendar a month in advance. If no tour is on the calendar for a particular Sunday, it is usually because some other activity is scheduled in the church which prevents a tour from occurring.

We open the doors to the church 365 days a year not only because we have at least one worship service every day, but also because we know the people of our great city need a place in the middle of midtown to sit in peace, to pray, and to approach the altar of the Lord. We invite you to come inside, whenever you want, and to stay for as long as our doors are open. See daily hours here.


There is a ramp along the side of the church on 53rd Street. Simply enter the Parish House door at One West 53rd Street and we’ll help you. If you know in advance that you are coming for a worship service, concert, recital or any other activity, and you need any assistance whatsoever, do not hesistate to let us know so that we can be sure to meet you at the entrance along 53rd street.


Saint Thomas has neither a parking lot nor any dedicated parking spaces on the street. We advise arriving on foot, by subway or bus, or by taxi. There is a parking garage on 53rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, less than a block from Saint Thomas.
