Organized in 1883 under the leadership of the Rev. H. A. Boniface, the first Catholic parish in Big Spring was named St. Mary's. A small frame sanctuary was built and early services were conducted in English, German, and Spanish. The need for a larger place of worship resulted in the construction of this building. Completed in 1911 under the direction of J. M. Morgan, it was dedicated to St. Thomas. The native stone structure features an extended center entry tower, Gothic arched windows, side buttresses, and corner limestone quoins.
