Our Lady’s Altar Society

Fifty years ago, when Msgr. John T. Gulczynski asked the school mothers to organize an essential altar society, the newly established St. Thomas Aquinas Parish had no church and only a makeshift altar in the Auditorium/Gym of the six-year-old Cathedral School No. 2. Thriving together in the Catholic community, our parish and parochial school now rank among the largest in the Diocese of Dallas. Our Lady's Altar Society continues to serve the Lord in His house.

Today, we invite a new generation of women and men of the parish to join us. Our membership is made up of smaller groups, or circles. We meet on the third Tuesday, from September to May. Individual circles meet informally, as friends, who share spirituality, common interests, and various projects. Circles are asked to support various altar society activities such as: parish events, occasionally hosting a reception for a general meeting, and arrange church cleaning related to the Mass and liturgical vestments.

The Altar Society is a dynamic group here to support our parish community and have a little fun along the way. Join us for a meeting or event and see for yourself what we’re all about.
