Welcome from the Pastor

Welcome from the Pastor

On behalf of all the families of our parish, please let me welcome you to St. Thomas the Apostle Parish! We have been around a long time. The first Catholic settlers in the Corry area go back as far as 1856. Our diocese was only three years old! The founding pastor, Father Thomas Lonergan was a newly ordained priest with the tremendous task of gathering Catholic families and seeing if there was interest in forming a new parish. Before long, in 1862, we built our first parish church in Corry. Most of the Catholics were from Ireland, and worked on the railroad or related industries.

Today, we represent many nationalities, trades, and backgrounds. We have a rich history reflecting devoted Catholic Christianity.

Please do come to the parish office at 203 West Washington Street, Corry Pennsylvania. Office hours are from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm Mondays through Thursdays. Please ask to make an appointment with me so that we can meet, and that I might personally welcome you as you register.

Wishing you God's devoted love,

Father Davis
