Fellow parishioners Coeur d’Alene is a tourist town on a lake, so in the summer you’ll see some tourists. It is an English-speaking community; the church is surrounded by older single-family homes.
School Not at the parish, but Holy Family Catholic School is a regional school that serves grades K-8, and is located about 5 ½ miles away.
Parking Plenty around the church.
Additional observations St. Thomas the Apostle is a historic parish in the Diocese of Boise, Idaho. It was established in 1890 to serve the miners and loggers of the area; the church building itself was completed in 1910. It is among the most beautiful churches in Idaho, with colorful stained glass windows, traditional art, archways, a high steeple and high exterior walls. There is an ongoing remodel of the St. Thomas Mission House on the parish grounds, so you may see construction going on when you visit the parish. It’s also a short walk to the downtown resort area.
This is a beautiful church! And it is wonderful the Catholic Church has a presence in this part of our Great country where racists and white supremacists have considerable influence. Jesus, Mary and Joseph – pray for us!
Racists and White Supremacists do not have “considerable influence.” This isn’t 1954.
I have been to this church awhile ago. A good friend I knew in Coeur d’Alene had passed away and wanted to visit her grave. I’m from the mid-west (Wisconsin) and attend the Latin Mass in Wausau Wisconsin and my friend told me about how beautiful it was. So before beginning a trip to Alaska I took an extra couple of days to drive over from Seattle and visit.
I recently became a Catholic thanks to St Thomas. This church is a beautiful and warm and welcoming. It’s like a family. All are welcome.
