Hello faith family! I hope this finds you well. Sunday, September 13, 2020 is the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost. On Sunday, connect to our worship service at St. Thomas’s YouTube channel – this is the same link each week. Please subscribe and ring the notification bell (twice) so you never miss a service. Here is the service program and the service program in large print that accompanies this Sunday’s worship service. There are paper copies available to be mailed. If you would like one, please let me know.
We will be streaming LIVE from St. Thomas’s at 9 a.m. Yesterday, I emailed an invitation to in-person worship for this Sunday with a link to a sign-up genius. Here our FAQ about the precautions and procedures for doing in-person worship safely. Please do not hesitate to contact the office or Fr. Howie with any questions or concerns about this option. Each service will continue to be streamed and I suspect many of us will still be participating from home. 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.
Our friends at St. Nicholas are still most welcome to worship with us online every Sunday, however their parish has returned to in-person gathering. On Sunday, September 13, 2020, St. Thomas’s will also begin offering in-person worship, as well as, online worship, still at 9 a.m. Regardless of whether we are together in-person or virtually, we are connected by the Holy Spirit: For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20).
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!
