Parish Email for Friday, 29 October 2021



Ingathering Sunday is 31 October 2021.  Let us join together and bless our pledge cards for the 2022 stewardship year.  It’s not too late to make a commitment to St. Thomas’. Talk to Sarah T. or anyone from the Stewardship Committee if you need a pledge card or have any questions.


Thank you to St. Thomas’ delegation to the special convocation meeting to select members of the Bishop Search Committee, and to Tal K. for standing for election. Though Tal polled well, Ashley M. of Holy Trinity, Wenonah and the Rev. Sharon P. of St. Stephen’s, Mullica Hill were elected to serve on the actual Bishop Search Committee. Ashley and Mother Sharon are both close neighbors and generous partners in the mission and ministry of St. Thomas’ and the Episcopal Church. Please be in prayer for this committee as it takes shape and begins its consequential work!

Soles for the Harvest 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run is sponsored by the Office of Jubilee Ministries in the Diocese of NJ!  Walk, jog, run and/or donate to support St. Thomas’ and Kitchen of Hope!  Contact Tal K. or check the website here for details.
