Letter from Father Jantz  

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Allow me to introduce a new member of our ministry team at St. Thomas: Fr. Joe Lody, our new associate pastor. His presence among us is an answer to many prayers, especially my own! God is truly good, and the presence of another priest will be a great blessing to our community.

Fr. Lody will be ministering both here in Montevallo and at Resurrection in Clanton. Along with the whole parish, I welcome him and look forward to the gifts he brings to us. We’ll have an opportunity for a formal welcome in a few weeks, after he gets settled in the rectory. In the meanwhile, please be sure to support Fr. Lody in your prayers during this time of transition.

Speaking of prayers and priests, I would ask your prayers in a special way for priestly vocations. We’re living in a time when it is very difficult, both socially and spiritually, for a man to hear and answer God’s call—but also when the ministry of priests is especially needed, to feed and care for Christ’s flock in challenging times.

United in prayer for each other, for Fr. Lody, and for all those called to the priesthood, we commend these intentions to Mary, the Mother of Priests, and our parish patron St. Thomas.


God bless,

Fr Jantz

¿Pensando en ser católico?

Clases de RCIA Para Adultos 9/13

La Parroquia de Santo Tomás comenzará las sesiones el domingo 13 de septiembre para aquellos que estén interesados en recibir sacramentos de iniciación. El proceso se llama el rito de la iniciación cristiana. Este proceso de la RCIA es para personas que no han sido bautizadas, personas que han sido bautizadas en otra tradición cristiana que desean convertirse en católicas, y católicos adultos que han sido bautizados, pero que no han sido confirmados. La RCIA será la única sesión presencia en persona que se ofrece en Santo Tomás este primer semestre. Las sesiones serán los domingos de 9:30 AM a 10:45 AM. Las sesiones en inglés se reunirán en el Salón Parroquial, y las sesiones en español se reunirán en la Sala de San José. Debido a la necesidad de distanciamiento social, las únicas personas que podrán asistir a estas sesiones serán los candidatos, sus cónyuges y sus padrinos.
