A WARM WELCOME TO OUR NEW PASTOR:
We are pleased to introduce Father Thomas Costa to the Mt. Hope Catholic Community.
Father Tom grew up in nearby Seekonk and later gradutated from University of Hartford. After a career in business, he entered priestly formation and completed his Theological studies at Pope John the XXIII Seminary in Weston, MA. He was ordained on July 9, 2005. He served as Pastor of Annunciation of the Lord from 2012 to 2019 and has had assignments as Chaplain of Bishop Feehan High School as well as Our Lady of Lourdes School. Along with experience in Family Ministry, he also brings with him experience ministering as a Hospital Chaplain at Cape Cod Hospital. He arrives from the Taunton Catholic North collaborative, where he served as Co-Pastor of St. Jude The Apostle, St. Anthony's, and St. Mary's since 2019.
He looks forward to meeting parishioners and getting to know the life of our parishes more closely. As he settles into his new role as Pastor, Father Costa would like you to know that he will be praying for all of us. He asks that you in turn pray that the Holy Spirit guides his arrival so that this community continues to grow in the faith, hope and love of Jesus Christ.
Our parish community welcomes Fr. Tom, and we pray that the Holy Spirit will guide him and bless his time here with us.
