(Click on any photo to see an enlargement with a caption)


Consistent with our mission, the historic buildings in our Parish and at the nearby Ivy Mills Homestead are frequently used for the celebration of the Eucharist at Mass, for weddings, for public and private tours, and for meetings of parish ministry groups.  Listed below are several videos typical of our celebrations.

Video #1:  (May 20, 2012) Celebration of Mass in St. Mary’s Chapel at the Ivy Mills Homestead to commemorate the use of Ivy Mills as a 19th century location for seminarians to escape the Summer heat in Philadelphia while offering opportunities for reflection and relaxation.  (Regretably the sound quality of this video is inconsistent.)


Video #2:  (August 22, 2013) Elevation of the Eucharist during a Mass in the 1852 Church


Please add your St. Thomas The Apostle memories, comments, and reflections below for all to see.

Thank you.

    Around 1983, musicians from a music school in Philadelphia began coming to our St. Thomas School to introduce the students to musical instruments and to give instruction on how to play them. Through this program our son, then in sixth grade, learned to play the trombone and went on the play in both his high school and university marching bands, making many friends (including his future wife) and traveling across the country in the process.

    Please preserve this chapel. It holds precious memories for myself and many other parishioners. Thank you
