Welcome to the website of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Monterey Park, California. Our parish, located at 1501 S. Atlantic Blvd, in Monterey Park, was founded in 1961 with a vision of bringing the people of God closer to God through worship and community building. We have since grown and been transformed and we are still evolving into a community whose future is known to God alone.
Our parishioners from all corners of the world call St. Thomas Aquinas ( STA) home. When the church was founded the Eucharist and ministries were all in English. Today, 2016, we have Masses and ministries in English, Spanish and Chinese. Inspired by the spirit of our patron Saint, St. Thomas Aquinas, we strive to worship God with faith and devotion.
Please find time to come and join us on our exciting journey of encountering God at various moments of our lives. We celebrate baptisms for both infants and adults. We have an elementary school ( K – 8) that has been educating our community since 1964. The church and the parish office is open during the day. Please come to visit and let us know how we can be of ministry to you at this point in your life.
Fr. John Kyebasuuta, Pastor.
