Parish Email for Friday, 18 June 2021



Dear St. Thomas’,

This weekend we begin our summer schedule! There will be only one service on Sundays, at 10am.

Join us as we celebrate the Holy Eucharist:

  • Sundays at 10am (outdoors) (note the new time!)
  • Saturdays at 6pm (indoors and online)

RSVP’s are no longer required indoors, but we will reserve a number of seats for those who want or are required to continue to practice social distancing.

Come join us!




During this season of coronavirus infections, we love others as Jesus loves us by following a simple guideline:

Those not fully vaccinated against Covid-19 must wear a mask and practice social distancing while on church grounds.

Masks are optional for those who have been fully vaccinated.
