Catholica Omnia was started on May 8, 2008 as the Thomas Pringle Vocation Blog, to depict the life of a Catholic seminarian. Upon leaving seminary formation in 2010, Thomas broadened the blog’s perspective to cover news and events important to Catholics in the United States.

Thomas is a member of the class of 2006 from Olympia High School in Windermere, Florida and has attended Valencia Community College, where he obtained his Associate of Arts degree in General Studies and St. John Vianney College Seminary in Miami, Florida. Thomas is a graduate of the University of Central Florida, receiving a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Public Administration. He is also proud to be a fourth degree member of the Knights of Columbus and a member of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians.

In November 2012, Thomas was invited by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to participate in a dialogue with bishops about how the Catholic Church can utilize social and new media to share the Catholic story to those individuals active on social networking sites. The “Encounter with Social Media: Bishops and Bloggers Dialogue” took place before the 2012 Fall General Assembly of the USCCB in Baltimore, Maryland.

Thomas currently serves as Administrative Coordinator at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Sun City Center, Florida in the Diocese of St. Petersburg. He is responsible for executing all communication efforts at the parish, including producing the weekly bulletin, implementing the use of social media, broadening the use of email marketing, and disseminating information about upcoming events at the parish to local media sources. Working with diocesan officials, the pastor, parish staff, and volunteers, Thomas is also responsible for the coordination of all stewardship efforts at Prince of Peace, including ensuring the parish’s success of the Diocese of St. Petersburg Annual Pastoral Appeal, serving as liaison for the various ministries and groups involved at the parish, and coordinating all major events and activities sponsored by the parish.
