Letter from Father Jantz  

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

How many people will there be in heaven? I’m sure it’s something we’ve all wondered about every so often. The Church’s tradition on this point is a bit complicated: God desires the salvation of every human being, but he also respects our freedom of choice to be with him or not. That complexity is the reason why Jesus sort of brushes off a question about someone who wants to take a census of heaven’s population. His basic point is that instead of getting distracted by questions that are way above our paygrade, we should focus in on two things: making sure that we ourselves get to heaven, and doing everything we can to bring as many people along with us as we can.

This principle touches many aspects of our life of faith, from our Sunday celebrations to our individual prayers to our works of charity. For this weekend, I’d like to ask everyone to think about the second part: how do we get as many people to heaven with us as possible?

We’re currently in the process of starting our RCIA program for the year: the main way that we respond to the needs of people seeking unity with Christ and his Church. The team is already meeting each Sunday at 9:30am, and the formal program will begin the weekend after Labor Day. As a first step, please think and pray about anyone you know that might be interested—I’m sure we all know someone that has questions and would like to learn more about God. As a second step, please give them a personal invitation to come to St. Thomas and check out our RCIA.

Through the intercession of Mary, the Mother of Apostles, and our patron St. Thomas, may we all find the wisdom and courage to bring someone in our lives to the Lord Jesus.

God bless,

Fr Jantz

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.
