Hearing Loop Installed for Hard of Hearing

St. Thomas Aquinas recently installed a hearing loop. While a person with normal hearing may have little trouble distinguishing between background noise and the primary conversation, this is more challenging for those with any degree of hearing loss. For the hearing-impaired, this hearing loop eliminates background noise by relaying sound directly from a microphone into the user’s hearing aid or cochlear implant. There is no limit to the number of people who can access the loop at once. Learn more.

Stewardship Opportunities

Stewardship is a way of life - something we practice in a dozen little ways every day. St. Thomas Aquinas is a "stewardship parish." We, as Catholics, are called to live out our Gospel values in small ways and large; each member putting their God-given gifts and talents to use. To see a list of some of the ways you can put your gift of time to use see our Stewardship Opportunities Catalog. Use the Stewardship Form to signup.

Church History

Built in 1896, and formerly known as St. George, this parish was once part of the Green Bay diocese. In 1967, a new building was built to accommodate those from both parishes of St. Fridolin of Glenbeulah (1865) (see pictures below) and members of St. George in Elkhart Lake. On July 1, 2001, St. Fridolin and St. George merged to become the parish now known as St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Fridolin is still maintained and can be utilized for special functions. It is located at 210 N. Dillingha.m., Glenbeulah, WI 53023.
