The CDC COVID-19 Community Level is HIGH. This means masks are required at any indoor gatherings at St. Thomas’, including gatherings for worship.
Our annual Church Picnic is scheduled for tomorrow, 20 August from 12 noon to 6pm at Camp Sun-n-Fun! Eucharist is scheduled for 3pm at the picnic.
Ahli Arab Hospital is a hospital owned and operated by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem in the Gaza strip. It is the oldest hospital in Gaza, and as a Christian hospital, it provides care for more than 45,000 Gazans each year without partiality. The recent hostilities in the Holy Land have resulted in many deaths and injuries in two refugee camps, including one very close to Ahli Arab Hospital. Due to the border controls on Gaza, the hospital’s resources are incredibly strained. If you would like to give to support the work of this Christian witness for peace and loving neighbors in the Middle East, you may do so through the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.
Provide relief and help communities recover from flooding and fires
Deadly flooding and fires in southern and western parts of the US are displacing thousands and creating a financial burden on the most vulnerable. Episcopal Relief & Development is working with church and local partners to provide help where it’s needed the most. Your swift response and compassionate gift to the Episcopal Relief & Development Disaster Fund will provide supplies to help communities in Kentucky, Virginia, Missouri, California and other places make a full and sustained recovery. Visit episcopalrelief.org to make a contribution today.
Our COVID protocol is following the CDC guidelines for Gloucester County. Masks are not presently required. But they are still simple and effective protection. Please be sure to stay on top of your recommended vaccinations to protect all those you love.
