Welcome to St. Thomas A’ Becket Catholic Church
We are a community of faith in Jefferson Hills, PA which is a parish of the diocese of Pittsburgh. The Saint Thomas A' Becket Family is available to you in the many needs of your everyday life. Each new person who comes to us seeking a faith community is a blessing from our God. It is our fervent desire to embrace all newcomers and to nurture them into the life of this parish. This can only happen when we know each other. In knowing each other, we can more readily embrace the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We have an abundance of ministries that should afford the opportunity for anyone to become involved and connected with other parishioners. Our strength as a parish community only comes through connecting with each other at Sunday and daily Mass and through the many ministries and parish activities.

This website will help educate you in most of what goes on at the parish. It will also help you to get to know your way around the parish and know who to call for whatever need you might have. Enjoy browsing this site. Give us some feedback and let us know how we can help and support you.

Capital Campaign

sample imageGood and gracious God, You have blessed us with men and women who founded this parish community with Christ as “the head and the cornerstone.”

We pray for hearts that are fresh with enthusiasm and energy so that we might be faithful to their legacy as we pave the way for the future. Guide and help us during this time of material sacrifice and call to generous giving. Inspire us to make choices that will benefit the St. Thomas A’ Becket Parish Community, so that rooted in our past and dedicated to our present, we might be visionaries of the future.

We consecrate this campaign to Mary, the Mother of God. May she intercede for our needs before her Son. St. Thomas A’ Becket, pray for us. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen...more
