About Us

Welcome to Holy Family – St. Thomas Aquinas Parish!

As a Roman Catholic Parish, in the heart of Park Slope, we are a faith-filled parish family that strives to challenge and support each person to live a deeper relationship with Jesus. Each day we celebrate His Gospel through the Eucharist and by being committed to the causes of social justice and equality for all. Aware of this Christian call, we hope to accomplish our mission through liturgy, education, service, and a place to call home for the individual, the family, and the entire community.

Consientes de este llamado Cristiano, esperamos alcanzar nuestra misión a través de la liturgia, la educación, el servicio y el compromiso de hacer que nuestra iglesia sea un lugar al que cada individuo, cada familia y la comunidad entera pueda llamar hogar.
