St. Thomas The Apostle To Hold Parish Mission

Published April 2, 2009

Brown is an internationally known liturgical composer, author, recording artist and speaker. Because of his many years of experience working in a multicultural parish, he has a unique insight into the power that good liturgy can instill in people of all colors and backgrounds.

Brown’s down-to-earth approach to liturgy and Scripture, coupled with his dynamic speaking style, has made him one of the most sought after presenters in the country today.

St. Thomas the Apostle, which ministers to Nigerian, Filipino, African-American and Hispanic parishioners, celebrates its parish diversity. Organizers believe that Brown will appeal to people of all races and cultures.

In order to get parishioners enthusiastic about their faith and to join in the work of evangelization, the church began “Ignite,” a monthly event that includes worship, Scripture, reflection, guided meditation, music, prayer and personal testimony from fellow parishioners who inspire and continue to live the Gospel. The capstone of the year is the church’s parish mission.
