This is the 6th Sunday after Pentecost- Proper 8.  We will continue our use of the alternative Eucharistic rite throughout the summer.  This Sunday begins our Summer Sunday Fun-day program!  It will meet at 9am for the next 6 Sundays and is open to all children.
The blood drive will be coming up in just 3 weeks.  If you would like to make an appointment to donate blood at the church on July 20th, visit this website: ribcdonor.org
The residents of Alton voted last Saturday to move forward with the proposal to establish a public water system in the Alton area.  Currently residents in Alton (including St. Thomas') rely on wells for their water.  The water district will move forward to see if a public system can be constructed.

This is the 4th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 6).  We are continuing our use of alternative Eucharistic rites throughout the summer.
This is a busy Sunday at St. Thomas'.  It is Father's Day and it is the day we celebrate our high school and college graduates.  Both of these are non liturgical, but they are part of our family celebration.
