About Us

St. Thomas Parish

In 1846 St. Mary’s, Hamilton, founded a mission church in Waterdown, naming it for St. Francis. The catholic community of the area met in a modest wooden structure until the donation of land by Thomas English in 1852 (today the site of St. Thomas Cemetery) for construction of a larger stone building completed and dedicated in June 1864.
