We continue to offer two outdoor Eucharists per week: Sunday at 10.30am and Wednesday at 5.30pm. These meet in rain or shine: please consider your clothing, your health, and the weather before joining us outdoors for 30 or 60 minutes. However, on Sunday mornings, if the temperature is below freezing as 10.30am approaches, we may choose to move the service into the Parish Hall (and broadcast it on Zoom).
The St. Thomas’ Annual Report is being prepared. One of the best parts of the report is hearing from all the different ministries at St. Thomas’, great and small. Please make sure the ministries you are involved in submit a report – just one or two sentences is all that is needed. Tell us what you do and how others can get involved! Submissions may be made by email to the church office: email@example.com.
The St. Thomas’ Annual Meeting is planned for Sunday, 31 January 2021 at 2pm. Join us via Zoom! Members in good standing (i.e., who regularly contribute to support the ministry of St. Thomas’) are invited to utilize mail-in voting. Voter Guides and ballots will be distributed shortly!
Numbered pledge envelopes have arrived! Pick yours up at an in-person liturgy or from the table in the lower level of the Parish Hall. If you are unable to pick them up, your number will stay the same: please write that number in the memo line of your check and you will receive full credit for each gift.
