"Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire"

St. Catherine of Siena

St. Thomas Aquinas has a long history as a missionary church in Rio Rancho, NM and in the Archdioces of Santa Fe.
We haven't lost that missionary spirit as we have grown and we approach youth ministry as the crucial mission field right in our own backyard.

Through our offerings of Life Teen (High School Youth Ministry), Summit (Bible Study), JCore (Disciple Leadership) and Purpose (10th - 12th grade Sacrament Preparation) we live to serve the youth community and empower teens to become more firmly rooted in the Truths of the Catholic Church.  We do this by allowing the teens to be themselves and allow them to ask any question that their hearts seek as we journey to encounter Christ.

FIAT

Our Yearly Theme

GOD SHARES HIS AMAZING CREATIVE POWER WITH HIS CREATION WHEN WE ALLOW HIS WILL TO BE DONE IN OUR LIVES.
This word that allows God to do big work is simple – the word is fiat - AND IT IS LATIN FOR “LET IT BE DONE”
This year at Life Teen, we are going to be praying into that single word – fiat – and allowing it to radically transform us. We invite you to do the same and journey with us as we step into the new thing God is doing, and the ways that God still speaks light into the world, and the ways that God does that through each of us in a unique way – all of us filtering that light into the world.

Will you Partner With Us to Help Bring teens to Christ?
