Commitments and Partnerships

We partner with numerous local, national and international organizations to advance the common good. All members of the St. Thomas community are invited to consider the ways in which they can give back and make a difference.

Catholic Teaching on Combating Racism

St. Thomas is a partner organization in the Catholic Racial Justice Coalition (CRJC) of the Twin Cities. They work to build just relationships, heal the wounds created by racism and discrimination, and contribute to ending racial injustice within our communities and collective Catholic organizations.

Catholic Teaching on the Environment

St. Thomas joined the Laudato Si’ Movement in 2021. This global initiative seeks to inspire and mobilize people around the world in caring for our common home. We stand with others in response to Pope Francis’ call to create a more sustainable world.


Formal and informal partnerships with local organizations provide St. Thomas community members transformational opportunities to serve and be transformed.

Catholic Relief Services

Catholic Relief Services work with organizations around the world to help people overcome emergencies, earn a living through agriculture and access affordable health care.

Catholic Charities

The mission of Catholic Charities is to serve those most in need and to advocate for justice in the community.
