Hello faith family! February 14, 2021 is the Last Sunday in Epiphany: Lent is right around the corner!. We will be streaming LIVE from St. Thomas’s at 9 a.m. YouTube channel. Here is the service program, and the service program in large print for your preview. There are paper copies available to be mailed. If you would like one, please let me know.
Please see our parish prayer list. These names are read aloud and prayed for each Wednesday at the service of intercessory prayer, and sharing this list each week in the Sunday leaflet gives us all the opportunity to participate. Please take a moment to look over this list and send me any updates or additions.
This Sunday, February 14, 2021 at 10:30 a.m., adult education will meet via ZOOM to conclude the discussion around “Tolkien’s Ordinary Virtues: Exploring the Spirituality in the Lord of the Rings” by Mark Eddy Smith. Please contact Rue, Larry, or the office with any questions. Reading the book is not a requirement, and you can participate in one or all of the sessions.
Also on February 14, 2021 at 10:30 a.m., Novel Theology will be meeting to discuss “The Peppermint Tea Chronicles” by Alexander McCall Smith. From the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency to Isabel Dalhousie, Alexander McCall Smith is famous for crafting warm and witty series beloved by fans around the world.

At this time, all services and gatherings have been moved to online. Please do not hesitate to contact the office or Fr. Howie with any questions or concerns about the decision to move back to online worship. Regardless of whether we are together in-person or virtually, we are connected by the Holy Spirit: Always together; never apart…maybe in distance, but never in heart.
In this strange time, the church is aware that some of its members are struggling to make ends meet. If you are in this situation, please let the clergy know of your needs, pray for the church, and feel no guilt about your giving. But if you are able to give, options for giving include mailing a check to your church or online giving. See our Giving page.
I look forward to worshiping together on Sunday!
