We live the unity of the Body of Christ through reaching out in the community that surrounds our parish. Our parish created Aquinas Center, a ministry of Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic Community in Philadelphia, PA, as a way to be a living example of the unity of the Body of Christ. We opened in January 2013 with a mission to build unity in diversity, support learning, and inspire thoughtful action. Our center is home to urban immersion experiences, counseling services, a legal clinic to help immigrants (regardless of documents), community organizing and advocacy efforts, English and literacy classes, and urban revitalization projects, such as a community garden. We are passionate about engaging people of all ages in overcoming the cultural barriers and injustices which can often divide our communities.
