Ladies Night Out – Summer Schedule

Hi Ladies. This summer we will keep it simple and meet on the 14th each month and we will stick to Main Street since the volume (and hopefully the parking) is less challenging in the summer.

I hope to see you there.

July 14th – Iron Hill, 147 East Main St., Newark, DE 19711

Pentecost multilingual reading

posted in: Pentecost | 0

Dear members of the St. T family,

We will be celebrating the Feast of Pentecost in two weeks on June 4. At both morning services we will have our traditional multilingual reading of the first lesson, Acts 2:1-21. This is a call for volunteers who can do this reading in place in any foreign language, real or imaginary (e.g., Klingon). Please let me know as soon as possible if you are able and willing to do such a reading and in what language(s) (please list all if you can do more than one). The texts are readily available in many languages at Thank you.

Sermon for the Sixth Sunday of Easter – May 21, 2017/Year A

posted in: Sermons | 0

Christ suffered for the sins of all the righteous and unrighteous alike in order to bring us to God. The redemptive suffering of Christ serves for all humanity even those who hadn’t had the opportunity to learn God’s truth.

It is through baptism we are all united with Christ. The Advocate dwells in everyone who loves Jesus and honors his commandments.

See The Reverend Deacon Cecily Sawyer Harmon’s Sermon for the Sixth Sunday of Easter – May 21, 2017/Year A.

Hello Church Family,

Please join me at our annual Pentecost Parish Picnic! The picnic will take place on June 4 after the 10:30 a.m. service. St. Thomas’s will provide hamburgers, veggie burgers and hot dogs a well as paper products and drinks. There will also be games and activities for all ages. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to help set up, clean up and help facilitate games. We also NEED YOU to bring a side dish or dessert to complete our celebration meal. (Donations will also be accepted toward the cost of the entrees and paper products.)

Signup sheets to get an estimate of how many people are coming, who can help with setup and/or cleanup, and who is bringing what will be on the Great Hall door beginning on May 21. One more thing…you are welcome to bring chairs or picnic blankets for your comfort and enjoyment.

Thanks in advance for your help in creating another great fellowship opportunity for our St. Thomas’s family, especially during, this, our 175th year!! Please feel free to e-mail me at or call me at 302-832-8834 with questions or to volunteer to help plan or facilitate the picnic.
