Lois Robinson passed away this week after a gradual decline. Her family has asked to celebrate a small graveside service with mostly just family present. However, because Lois has been a part of St. Thomas’ for so long and was well-loved by the parish, at 10.30am this Sunday (25 October) we will designate our liturgy as a Requiem Eucharist remembering Lois. Please join us as we honor someone who loved St. Thomas’ passionately!
This Sunday children and their families will gather (at a safe distance and outdoors) to carve pumpkins at 12.30pm! Talk to Barbara Korcuba or Gretchen Owen right away if you need more information about this activity.
Wednesday night Eucharist resumes next week at 5.30pm!
Adult Formation is offered at 4.30pm on Saturday via Zoom.
