Saint Thomas is blessed to have an overabundance of ministries. One of the most unique is the association of senior men that meet in the Saint Irene Philoptochos Hall. They are our parishioners and recognized as the fathers and forefathers of our community.

The Kali Parea meets at 10:00am each and every Wednesday. The President of the group is Jerry Karapalides. They sit down, have coffee, snacks and lunch,  discuss the topics of the day and otherwise enjoy in the fellowship of their fellow father and grandfather parishioners.

There is a display wall noting the Kali Parea and its activities in the George A. Horiates alcove of the hall.
