This is the First Sunday of Advent.  There is no church school this week.  To learn more about the season of Advent, click on the tab at the top of this page.  At St. Thomas' we observe Advent using blue altar hangings and vestments.
This year the focus of Advent will be on the Way of Love (see post in left column).  Follow along using the Way of Love Advent calendar that you can find here.
The Christmas tree in the church sanctuary will be adorned with ornaments that show how our parishioners follow the Way of Love.  Join us each week and share in the adventure!
