A joyful welcome from St. Tom’s to you as a guest of our faith community!

St. Thomas Aquinas serves as the Catholic center at Purdue University. Affectionately known as “St. Tom’s,” the parish is supported by the Dominican Friars from the Province of St. Albert the Great in Chicago, under the leadership of our pastor Fr. Tom McDermott, OP.

St. Tom’s parishioners include more than 800 resident families and nearly 13,000 Catholic students attending Purdue and participating in more than 35 ministries under the Dominican pillars of Community, Prayer, Study and Service.  

Our mix of resident and student parishioners creates a vibrant community, and we are so pleased that you are visiting us (online and in-person).  Below are a few resources to acclimate you to our parish. St. Tom’s offers Daily Mass, Saturday Vigil and four Sunday Mass Times. There are daily opportunities for Confession as well. Sacrament times are listed in the footer of our website.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us by email (mailbox@boilercatholics.org) or phone (765) 743-4652 with any questions or needs that you may have.
