At St. Thomas’ Parish, we want to strengthen our community in southern Prince George’s County. We like to initiate events that bring the Parish and the wider community together. Reaching out to our neighbors, we seek to follow our Lord, Jesus Christ, who teaches us, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
A new tradition has become the Harvest Bounty celebration, held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving Day, bringing together our market vendors, artists, and the community.
St. Thomas’ Parish serves as the meeting place for a number of community groups. The hall also serves as a polling place for elections. At the Chapel of the Incarnation in Brandywine, Community Support Services (CSS) office operates in the Parish Hall during the day, and Alcoholics Anonymous groups meet there in the evening.
The parish-owned DiBrandi Senior House, located next to the Chapel, provides housing for low-income senior citizens and is administered by CSS.
Upper Marlboro Food Bank
We support the Upper Marlboro Food Bank, contributing items to the pantry, helping to sort and pack bags, and hosting breakfast several times a year. We also support Community Support Systems (CSS), which helps individuals and families in need in southern Prince George’s County/northern Charles County and administers a low-income Senior house that is owned by the parish.
