  • Thanks for the turnout we had for last weekend's Meet & Greet! This was a wonderful opportunity to visit with people involved in the various activities and ministries here at St. Thomas. Thanks to all of the volunteers for their time and effort in making last weekend such a success!
  • Lunch Bunch will be making 1,000+ sandwiches for Casa Maria next Friday at 8:30 a.m. (after the 8:00 a.m. Mass) in the Parish Hall. If you can, I hope you will come and help.

  • Our next Blood Drive is in two weeks on November 9. Your support is so important. Please sign up in the narthex today.

  • Because St. Thomas is a voting location, you may see signs in the public right-of-way in front of the church for upcoming elections. We do not endorse any candidate or issue in any election. Please see the bishop’s note later in the bulletin.

  • All Saint’s Day falls on a Saturday this year and as such is not a holy day of obligation, the normal Saturday Masses (8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.) will be celebrated.

  • Many of you have been supporters of the Catholic Tuition Support Organizations (CTSO). This organization enables so many to have a Catholic Education. The amount of the tax credit this year is $1053 (single)/$2106 (couple). Info can be found at the CTSO website ( If you have any questions, please contact me ( or 577-8780 x 115) and I will be happy to answer them.


Blessings ... Fr. John
