St. Thomas Church

Serving God and the Community Since 1875

I don't remember who said it, but it was said. "Beware the Ides of March"

We call it Lent and if we really take it seriously, it will not be fun. It is a time of 40 days or so to take our spiritual pulse and pressure. We hope we will reach the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead better than when we began. It takes courage to face some of the things that we are still hanging on to, lack of forgiveness, resentment of long standing, past hurts and wounds that are still bleeding, and reconciliation of families just to mention a few.

If you who read this every want to talk about any of that, the office is open every day of the week. We cannot guarantee the quality of the coffee but the pot is always on.

During the Lenten season we will be having some light suppers on Wednesday's followed by a program of interest.

The schedule with details is elsewhere in this months epistle. Hope we all take advantage of those opportunities.

There is a sign up list if you wish to help on one of the weeks.

Bless some one today,

Fr. Charlie
