Volunteers get church ready for in-person services

Young volunteers get Pico-Union church ready for in-person services after pandemic

A local church is re-opening its doors to parishioners this weekend for the first time since the pandemic. And thanks to the help of some young volunteers, it will be picture perfect.

From the outside, St. Thomas the Apostle Roman Catholic Church is stunning. It’s been serving the Pico Union community since the doors first swung open on Christmas Day, 1904. Services haven’t been indoors since the pandemic began. That is about to change.

“Our community is anxious to come in. We’ve been celebrating our liturgies outside at the school. It’s a beautiful place, beautiful place for open mass but now everybody is hungry to come back,” Ramon Reyes, Deacon, St. Thomas the Apostle.
