Skip ahead to the program start at 30:30. Watch the video of young adults as they engaged with our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Friday, January 24th 2020.
On Saturday, January 20 from 11:00am until 2:00pm a delegation from St. Thomas’ Parish joined the resistance movement on the one year anniversary of the inauguration. Our group marched behind our “The President said what?” faith palm banner currently on display at our construction site.
Thank you to parishioner Lynn Moluf for organizing the event.
Ash Wednesday, a day of prayer and fasting, marks the beginning of Lent. Ashes are imposed on the foreheads of participants in the Ash Wednesday service as a sign of mortality and penitence.
Join us for dinner and frivolity as we celebrate as a community with our sisters and brothers from St. Luke’s and St. Margaret’s! Shrove Tuesday also known as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras is the day before Ash Wednesday. Historically it was a time to use up all the fat before the leanness of Lent began. St. Thomas’ has always enjoyed spending this time together in community with good food, laughter, and fun. This year we will host in our fourth floor parish hall. Please join us from 6:30-8:30 on February 25th, bringing something delicious to share. Friends from St. Luke’s will be bringing chicken and waffles while friends from St. Margaret’s will be bringing jambalaya. We look forward to celebrating together!
You may know that the ashes for Ash Wednesday come from burning palm leaves. If you have old palm crosses or leaves from Palm Sundays past, and would like them to be burned for this year’s ashes, please bring them to church in the coming weeks. We will burn them during the Shrove Tuesday party.
