Parish Post – May 23, 2019

Dear Parish Family and Friends,

With apologies for the somewhat late notice, Sunday School and Youth Church invite all kids (and kids-at-heart) to join us for a Kids’ Fest at St. Thomas this weekend, immediately following the 10:30 service.  We will have bubbles, face painting, t-shirts to color yourself, water balloons for tossing, and of course, donuts for eating off a string!

The Annual Parish picnic is scheduled for Sunday June 2, so we’re not lining up with that event as we usually do.  Unfortunately, the Claycomb family is out of town that weekend and the Carver family is out of town the following weekend.

We realize that some families may be out of town for Memorial Day, but if you’re in town, PLEASE join us for Mass and activities.  And if you have family or friends visiting with kids, bring them!  The more the merrier.  With questions or to volunteer to help, please email annclaycomb@hotmail.com
