STA Mothers' Association

  • Shelley Aguirre  

Welcome to the St. Thomas Aquinas Mothers’ Association (STAMA). Founded in 1961, we are a Catholic organization whose purpose is to aid Moms in providing a Catholic home atmosphere for young children. Membership is open to St. Thomas Aquinas Moms interested in enhancing the moral, spiritual, and educational welfare of their children, Kindergarten age and younger. In addition, we have many opportunities to get involved with other St. Thomas Aquinas Moms, such as monthly speaker event meetings, charity and volunteer work, fund raising events, Vacation Bible School, Pre-School Religious CCD, children’s parties, Mom’s Night Out and others.
