Saint ThomasDecember 21 is the feast day Saint Thomas the Apostle, which we transfer to Monday if December 21 falls on a Sunday. We celebrate Saint Thomas two other times through the year: (1) on Dedication Sunday (always the first Sunday of October), in which we celebrate the dedication of our church and therefore Saint Thomas as its patron saint, and (2) on Low Sunday (the Second Sunday of Easter), when the resurrected Christ shows himself to the doubting Thomas. To learn more about Saint Thomas the Apostle, consider these sermons in the archive.
Everliving God, who didst strengthen thine apostle Thomas with firm and certain faith in thy Son's resurrection: Grant us so perfectly and without doubt to believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God, that our faith may never be found wanting in thy sight; through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

On Mondays through Saturdays at 12pm we offer prayers and intercessions at the shrine of Our Lady of Fifth Avenue. These prayers precede the 12:10pm Eucharist and include the traditional recitation of the Angelus, prayers from the diocesan and Anglican cycle, and intercessions left either in the church or via this website.
