St. Thomas the Apostle Parish at 1449 Wilcox Park Drive SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506 US -
St. Thomas the Apostle, guided by the Holy Spirit, is a Christ-centered parish. We are joined together by a common Catholic faith. In mission with the message of the scriptures, we welcome, embrace, and serve our brothers and sisters by affirming and employing our God-given gifts. - excerpt of Parish Vision Statement
Hope. In Portuguese, “esperanca.” A hope which has saved thousands of lives.
$1,093,784.91 (as of October 31, 2010) has been contributed to Esperanca through the St. Thomas the Apostle parish tithe since 1980.
The legacy of Father Luke Tupper, a Franciscan priest and physician, has grown mightily in 35 years. And because of its faithful contributions, St. Thomas can rightly celebrate its part in that legacy.
