Would you like to help light the Advent candles this year? We need two people at the beginning of EACH weekend liturgy from 27 November through 18 December, meaning there is lots of opportunity for you to participate. Often families or friends like to team up for this short, simple act of service. If you would like to sign up, please email email@example.com with the day and time of the liturgy in which you would like to serve in this way.
Would you like to serve at the altar at St. Thomas? Acolytes are lay people who help in our worship services to: light candles, assist in preparations for communion, carry the cross in processional and so much more! We are training and refreshing training for all ADULTS AND CHILDREN AGE 10 AND UP. Children will be trained to do tasks that match their ability, people aged 16+ will be trained as Eucharistic ministers to assist in administering the bread and wine at Holy Eucharist.

As Episcopalians, we belong not just to a congregation but a Diocese. There are many ways to serve God’s community on the Diocesan level, and several of those opportunities (“offices”) will be filled at our 2023 convocation. Now is the time to make nominations! See the letter, list of offices to be filled, and nomination form on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall or online. Nominations are due by 21 December.
Our COVID protocol is following the CDC guidelines for Gloucester County. The CDC COVID-19 Community Level is MEDIUM. This means masks are not required. But they are still simple and effective protection. Please be sure to stay on top of your recommended vaccinations to protect all those you love.
