What’s Happening?

Pet Blessing 2019

This weekend was the Feast of St. Francis, when many like to offer a blessing of the animals. St. Francis saw God’s handiwork everywhere he looked, which meant that even the animals were deserving of care and honor as they, too, are God’s gracious gift. We blessed the pets on Saturday and the children’s stuffed animals on Sunday!

Ladies’ Tea 2019

The 2019 Ladies’ Tea was a huge success! Thank you to the many women and men who put time into setting up, serving, and cleaning up afterwards!

Dinner Church 2019

Dinner Church has begun again! This is a meal, Bible Study, and time of worship for young adults (college-aged or thereabouts). If you would like to help out with meals or supplies, please speak to Becky Foster!

Ministry Fair 2019

Thank you to Sarah Ternay, who organized, and to the many more who worked so hard to present a magnificent Ministry Fair this year! St. Thomas’ is a parish that loves to do!

Kickoff Picnic 2019


I would like to thank everyone who helped make our Kick-Off Sunday a huge success. It is true what they say “many hands make light work”. From the setup, food donations, serving help, and finally clean up so many of you pitched in and lent your hands. I am so very grateful to all of you. The day was filled with sunshine, fun, and fellowship. Looking forward to doing it again next September. Faithfully, Gretchen


TEC@RU (The Episcopal Church at Rowan University) is the phrase we’re using to refer to a band of parishes who are working together to share the good news of God’s love with the students, faculty, and staff of Rowan University. Participating churches include St. Thomas’ (Glassboro), Good Shepherd (Pitman), Holy Trinity (Wenonah), St. Stephen’s (Mullica Hill), and St. John’s (Salem).

Pulpit Swaps 2019

Many thanks to Fr. Chuck Messer, Mtr. Susan Osborne-Mott, Fr. Bob Fitzpatrick, and Fr. Ben Maddison for preaching and presiding at St. Thomas’ during the month of August. It was a month of pulpit swaps!

NYC Trip

St. Thomas’ Youth traveled to New York City this past week to have a fun day of community building! They are pictured here on the steps of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church right by Central Park!

Summer Improvements

St. Thomas’ is the campus that never sleeps! Thank you to those involved in improvement projects all around our campus this summer. You are empowering ministry all through the year!


The ECW teamed up with Kitchen of Hope last week to pack some “Tools for Schools” backpacks. St. Thomas’ honors God and loves our neighbor in our tireless and creative outreach efforts!
