What’s Happening?

Grungy Crop Pumpkins 2019

This weekend has become an annual trifecta: Grungy Sunday plus the Crop Walk plus Pizza and Pumpkins. At St. Thomas’ we’re not very good at choosing: we prefer to say “yes!” to everything! Thank you to everyone who helped out with these events: most of you with more than one of them!

Pre-Grungy Sunday 2019

Guess what? “Pre-Grungy Sunday” work is already going on, getting ready for the Ham & Oyster Supper. But it’s not too late for you to join the fun! Come out this Sunday to receive Communion in your “grungies,” then let’s get to work preparing a hospitable campus for the hundreds of visitors we will receive on 5 November!

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
