This is the 7th Sunday after Pentecost. The school supplies have been sorted and counted as we get ready to distribute them next month. The only things left that we need are a few more backpacks for high school students. Watch the sales! The parish picnic is coming up Saturday, Aug. 6 beginning at 2pm. Sign up to bring a food to share- we will supply the hamburgers and hotdogs.
The search committee for our new bishop is asking every Episcopalian in the diocese to take a survey to help them in their work. It takes 10 minutes or less to complete. Click on the link to the left of this column to get to the survey.

This is the 6th Sunday after Pentecost and we continue with the long "Green Season" of the church year (green vestments and hangings).
Three of our young people attended camp at the diocesan camp center in Pascoag and had a great time. A couple of them want to go back for another week in August!
We are looking ahead at school supplies distributions in next month. We still need a few things and they will be posted soon.

This is the 5th Sunday after Pentecost. We are enjoying summer garden flowers and wild flowers on our altar each week and we are happy to welcome visitors to our parish.
This Sunday the WARM meal will be prepared after church. Volunteers are always needed for coffee hour and grass mowing.

This is the 4th Sunday after Pentecost. At St; Thomas', we are unusual in the fact that our attendance does not go down during the summer months. We often have visitors that come to us while vacationing in Washington County.
We are starting to think about our annual school supply distribution which will take place at the end of August. Be on the look out for backpacks that are on sale!
