This weekend (1-2 May), besides Birthdays and Anniversaries, we will offer blessings for those Graduating from College. If that description fits you (or someone you love), come to church this morning to tell us about it and receive the prayers of St. Thomas’ on this momentous occasion!
The Burial Eucharist for Tina Lawton will be held on the Rectory lawn at St. Thomas’ on the Day of Pentecost, 23 May, at 6pm. Just like Sunday mornings, please wear a mask and bring a chair.
Rowan Students have finished their classes for the semester. Today may be your last chance to express goodbyes and well wishes to those who are headed home for the summer and those who are going off to new adventures. We wish all students at Rowan a successful conclusion to their semester and God’s blessing as they continue their journeys.
Graduating High School Seniors will be recognized by St. Thomas’ on 16 May at the 10.30am service. Please plan to attend! Additionally, the Diocese of NJ is recognizing seniors with a Diocesan Baccalaureate at 3pm on 23 May. Join us online!
St. Thomas’ is hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive on Tuesday, 4 May, from 2pm-7pm. Sign up online or use sponsor code: St. Thomas Glassboro
The Diocese of New Jersey has a crack team available to help you get an immediate appointment for vaccination against Covid-19. Use this form to get signed up for an appointment right away.
The CDC has provided guidance for those who have received the Covid-19 vaccine. Some protocols are relaxed among “fully-vaccinated” persons in private settings. For as long as not everyone has access to the vaccine, we will as a parish observe the protocols that keep everyone – including the unvaccinated – safe. This is a matter of justice: we do this in order to be in solidarity with all God’s children.
Announcements for the bulletin or parish email are due into the office by noon on Wednesday of each week. You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at 856-881-9144. Announcements are subject to editing due to limited space.
