This week the Diocese of New Jersey celebrates ECS Sunday! ECS-NJ is a new initiative that focuses on proactively addressing human needs, such as food and shelter, and relentlessly working against both social and racial injustice. St. Thomas’ helped lead the way as a founding sponsor of ECS-NJ when we gave nearly $12,000 following a summer campaign. Thank you for being a light in our Diocese, modeling love for our neighbors and a spirit of commitment to the good works of our larger Diocesan community.
The leaves are falling: that means it’s almost time for Grungy Sunday! Join us right after the 10.30 service on Sunday, 5 December as we clean and beautify the St. Thomas’ campus in preparation for the winter months.
Join us 7 December at 7pm for Advent Vespers – St. Thomas’ Young Preachers Series celebrating the feast day of St. Nicholas of Myra, Bishop. Can’t make it to the service? Watch it live here!
