Carpenter’s Helper newsletter for January 9, 2022

posted in: News | 0

Good morning faith family. See St. Thomas’s Carpenter’s Helper newsletter for news and events information for the First Sunday after Epiphany – January 9, 2022, Year A. This week, you will find the announcement of Deacon Cecily’s retirement, an invitation to January Novel Theology, and a Covid-19 update from Bishop Kevin.

This Sunday marks Deacon Cecily’s last Sunday celebrating with St. Thomas’s faith family.  We will shower her with love and well wishes this week, and present her with cards and gifts. But, the real celebration will take place this summer, when we can gather in the Grove and really do it right.  Please let the Cana or Fr. Howie know if you are interested in joining the party committee.  

Some of our worship events are as follows.

Other events follow:

  • Sundays at 9 a.m. – Youth Confirmation in the Undercroft.
  • This Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. – Novel Theology will Zoom to discuss “The Runaway Quilt” by Jennifer Chiaverini.
  • Sundays at 10:15 a.m. – Children’s Ministries in the Undercroft.
  • Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. – lectionary bible study in the classroom.

In this strange pandemic time, the church is aware that some of its members are struggling to make ends meet. If you are in this situation, please let the clergy know of your needs, pray for the church, and feel no guilt about your giving. But if you are able to give, options for giving include mailing a check to your church or online giving. See our Giving information.
