This is the 15th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 17).
Last Sunday we gave away 84 backpacks filled with school supplies.  Students from the local neighborhood and beyond were welcomed at the church and could pick out their favorite backpacks and supplies.  Thanks to all who generously donated to this project.
This Friday is the last day for the Charlestown Farmer's Market.  We have had a successful summer selling handmade goods from 1000 Jobs Haiti.  Stop by on Friday from 9:30-12 to pick up  a few items- you can save them for Christmas gifts!
Church school starts on September 15.
Tuesday Tutoring starts on September 24

This is the 13th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 15).  During the month of August we are continuing with the use of an alternative Eucharistic rite.  A different rite was used in June and July.  Some say this 3rd one being used in August is the best.  Come and tell us what you think!
This week is the Washington County Fair (Wed.-Sun).  St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church from Hope Valley is selling tacos and salted boiled potatoes there.  Their booth is white with a red cross on it.  Stop by and support them.
St. Thomas' is selling items for 1000 Jobs Haiti every Friday at the Charlestown Farmer's Market from 9-noon.
Every Tuesday from 9:30-10:30 there is free food at St. Thomas' for families with school age children.  This is sponsored by the SPLASH program at the Jonnycake Center of Westerly.
Backpacks and school supplies will be distributed on Sunday Aug 25 at 10am.
