Welcome Back!

Dear Parishioners,

It has been so good to see you back at Mass on the weekend! At this time we still have a restriction of 100 people at each Mass. As of this last weekend we still have room at each Mass, so if you have been thinking about coming back but have not done so yet…. PLEASE DO! You may reserve your spot on our parish website. If you are not comfortable with reserving online, please call the parish office and we can do it for you. I know some of you are hesitant to return but please know we have taken every precaution possible to protect all our parishioners …from requiring everyone to wear masks to hand sanitizer to social distancing in pews to limiting the amount of singing to distributing Holy Communion as you leave Mass a pew at a time to disinfecting the entire church after every Mass. It IS safe to come back and we would love to see you!

Wish the suspension of public Masses in March to the slow reopening process we continue to experience a large deficit in our weekly income that St. Thomas needs in order to carry on its mission of proclaiming the Gospel and meeting the spiritual needs of our parishioners and caring for our buildings and grounds. We are all facing difficult times, but please remember your parish as well. For your convenience, consider joining many of your fellow parishioners who already participate in electronic giving. Please click  here to sign up for electronic giving.

If electronic giving is not an option for you, please continue your regular support of the parish, by dropping off your weekly contributions to the parish office or sending them through the mail. We have also set up a GoFundMe page, click here to donate.

Know of my daily prayers for you all and THANK YOU for your assistance and for your much needed continued support of the parish.

In Christ,
Fr. Jay
