We have resumed offering Holy Communion
We have begun offering Holy Communion at both the 8:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. services. At this stage, we will only be offering the host.
Distribution of Communion
Ushers will direct households or individuals to a communion station for receiving. We ask that you maintain six feet of spacing between one another. All parishioners will continue to wear their masks while approaching for communion. Communion will be distributed with parishioners standing, preferably in a place where there is ample space to prevent crowding.All parishioners should step away from the communion station at least six feet before lifting their mask briefly to consume the host.
St. Thomas Church Annual Pledge Campaign
The Fall is very much about bringing in the harvest. It is the season when we gather our bounty and prepare for the future. Each year we hold our Annual Stewardship Campaign in the Fall making our commitments to St. Thomas. The Annual Pledge Campaign is for the yearly operating budget. It provides for salaries, heat, and supplies.
Please pray and consider seriously what you and your family can do in terms of time, talent and treasure to strengthen St. Thomas. No gift is too small. This is not about who makes the biggest gift. It is about all of us making a gift. When we act together for the greater good, then we are a force that can do a lot. Help St. Thomas with your annual pledge.
Look for more information on our Annual Pledge Campaign coming soon.

The Office is open for Church Business
Our church office hours are: Monday-Thursday 7:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and Fridays 7:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Because of COVID we ask that anyone visiting the church office adhere to the following safety measures:
* Please wear a mask.
* As you enter the parish hall, press the buzzer on your left.
* There is only one person allowed in the office at any one time in order to maintain social distance requirements.
* Please maintain social distance throughout your visit.
* If another visitor stops by, please expedite your stay so that we might assist everyone.
We can’t wait until we might once again socialize, but at this time we respectfully request minimizing social visits so that the needs of the church might be met.
Online Pledge Giving
Despite church services being cancelled, it is still necessary for us to continue supporting the church, our staff, and our community in all the ways we typically do. We hope parishioners will continue to make donations and keep up with pledges. If you have never donated electronically, you can set up an on line account (by clicking on the blue on line account, it will take you directly to Vanco sign up) with Vanco Solutions. Both on-demand and reoccurring donation options are available for your convenience. If you have a credit card that offers rewards, you might consider taking advantage of your reward options by making your donations with your credit card. After all, it is in giving that we may also receive.
