Demographic

The living stones that make up the Church of St. Thomas' are as diverse and varied as the community that the Church is situated in. Historically, strength of the Church was the large number of young families that attended, resulting in a very busy Sunday school. This has declined in recent years. Although St. Thomas’ began in the community of  Westfort, over the years there are just as many who have sought out the type of worship, sense of family and Bible based teaching that is characteristic of our parish. People now come from all over Thunder Bay to join in the fellowship.
