Celebrating 30 years of Service by Fr. James Chelich

A Culture of Belonging Heralded Under His Leadership

Over the past three decades, Fr. Jim has shepherded the Saint Thomas community through extraordinary times. His vision of a dynamic education centered in Christ has always included students of all abilities and, by encouraging parishioners with disabilities to have active roles in church life, he has fostered an “All Belong” school and parish community.

At Saint Thomas, a culture of belonging benefits the entire parish and school community. It enables students without a disability to know diverse individuals and have peers and friends with unique differences from their own. Inclusion is an integral part of our school’s vision and model, serving our parish and school community. Throughout his tenure, Fr. Jim has been steadfast in the belief that “we don’t do this because it is the nice thing to do, we do this because it is the right thing to do.
