This week is Trinity Sunday, another principle feast of the church year. Our schedule is changing accordingly. We will have live liturgies online both Saturday night at 5.30 and Sunday morning at 10am. One of those will be posted online for you to view if you don’t use Zoom. Sunday School for children will meet as usual online at 9am Sunday.
This week is the first Sunday of the month: join us on Saturday night or Sunday morning as we celebrate Birthdays and Anniversaries!
The annual Diocese wide ECW meeting, which was to be hosted by St. Thomas’ this year, is proceeding via Zoom at 10 AM this Saturday, 6/6. Anyone interested should probably contact Linda K. or Donna F.
The St. Thomas’ Stay Safe Committee has begun its work together! Their mission is to use Diocesan and state guidelines to design a process for St. Thomas’ to begin to open our campus once more. The work will be slow and painstaking, not hurried. Lives are on the line and we want to do this right. If someone from the committee calls to ask your opinion or for your assistance, please consider lending them a hand as we work through this unprecdented time in St. Thomas’ life together. Even as we hope to open up our buildings a little this summer, we will continue to offer online options for worship for quite some time going forward.
Kitchen of Hope’s mission of combating food insecurity is more important than ever during this time of mass unemployment. Therefore we will be offering food distributions on two different Saturdays in June: the second and the fourth (13 June and 27 June). Volunteers are needed but you must sign up with Vivian H. and come only during your assigned shift so that we may continue to comply with state and Diocesan guidelines on social distancing!
Last week we announced Anna Marie W.’s 90th birthday, asking you send cards. Her birthday isn’t until 1 July, so you still have time! We’ll provide the address again in a couple weeks.
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.

NOTE: The flyer below is for an event that is not sponsored by St. Thomas’. You are urged to consider carefully your own motivations, boundaries, and responsibilities for the health of yourself and others. Protests are a time-honored tradition for societal renewal and reform; but they are extra dangerous in the era of Covid-19. Please use extreme caution in deciding whether this is something in which you are called to participate. For more details, see the event page on Facebook.
Are you looking for ways to get involved from the safety of your home? Fear not! The Episcopal Church has tons of ideas you can act on to make a positive response against racist violence!
