Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas

Polish Mass of Lady of Częstochowa and Veneration of 1st Class Relic of Pope Saint John Paul II

On Sunday, August 21st at 2:00 p.m., St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church will host our 5th Annual Polish Diocesan Mass in Honor of Our Lady of Częstochowa and Pope St. John Paul II.

Polish priest Rev. Jan Trela will be Celebrant and Rev. Mr. James Witulski will assist as Deacon. This Mass will be in the Polish language with the homily given in both English and Polish. This Mass will fulfill your Sunday Mass obligation.

Confessions in Polish and English will be heard beginning at 1:00 p.m. A Polish Choir will provide music and singing during the Mass. Anyone owning traditional native Polish attire is encouraged to wear it to the Mass.

After the Mass, the faithful will have the opportunity to venerate a 1st Class Relic of Pope St. John Paul II; a drop of his blood on a fragment of his cassock from the day he was shot in 1981!

After the Mass, there will be a dessert reception with other light refreshments. Your donation of these refreshments is appreciated and can be dropped off at Aquinas Hall (located across the courtyard from the Church) before the Mass.

Thus, if you are of Polish heritage, or just love Our Lady and Pope Saint John Paul II, or if you would like to experience another culture, you are invited to attend this very special and popular Mass at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 1400 Suther Road, Charlotte 28213, which is located off University City Blvd., near UNC Charlotte. For more information, call Mary at 704.290.6012.
