St. Thomas Orthodox Community Center
A simple search for the definition of "community" will yield such results as the following: Community (noun)- 1. a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. 2. a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. It is with the hope of strengthening our Community, one that is established with Christ at it's midst, that HSTOC is proud to introduce our faithful members to the St. Thomas Orthodox Community Center project. In a time where Christ and His Church is seemingly forgotten and being persecuted in various parts of the world both near and far, this project represents an investment in a better and brighter tomorrow for all the members at HSTOC, both young and old. Truly the Lord is in this place...
The Parish Assembly held on Sunday, Oct. 4th approved the St. Thomas Orthodox Community Center drawings with updates from the City of Stafford and agreed to move forward with the approximately $2.5 million plan.
Additionally, 4 PM on Sunday, November 22nd was selected as the date we will invite our Diocesan Metropolitan, His Grace Alexios Mar Eusebius to lay the foundation stone. This marks a momentous occasion in the 41 year history of our Parish and thus we invite all the faithful members of St. Thomas Orthodox Cathedral to come and prayerfully take part in this event.
