A number of members of the parish, from young to old, enjoyed an evening of great food, and fun. The kids, and some of the adults, enjoyed making plastic canvas crosses, cross-shaped window clings that look like stained glass, Easter bunny and Easter chick cup-baskets, and decorating some cup-cakes and butterfly whoopee cakes. Being filled good food, and with lots of sugar, the kids then enjoyed tirelessly running around, putting on their own puppet show, and playing in the church. See you at the next one.
22 GOATS! Yes, St. Thomas's raised $1,800 at our third annual St. Patrick's Day Celebration, enough for 22 goats for Tanzanian families! Thank you so much from the Primate's Fund committee! And thank you to all who participated in putting the event on: to our visiting entertainers, Kelly's School of Dance, and In-formation; and to those who staffed the kitchen, served soup and cleaned up afterwards.

Adult Christian Education At St Thomas'
St. Thomas' values our ongoing Christian formation and education. It is good for us to be stretched, and challenged, and be introduced to new or different ideas. Such an exercise can either enrich and strengthen our currently held beliefs and assumptions, or open up whole new ways of looking at things. As we broaden our thinking we tend to become more inclusive, more deeply understanding how others might see any number of things differently from us.
This year, our small group Christian education and formation will focus on three available programmes. They are
These Groups will meet on their own schedules, and be safe places within which to further learn and grow as followers of Jesus and His way.
For further information on program schedules and locations please contact the office at St Thomas' during weekday working hours.
MusicMusic Programme: St. Thomas' offers a great music programme for children. The programme is progressive. The Cherub Choir offers music initiation for children under 8 years old. Children develop a sense of melody and rhythm through games and short hymns and songs.
The Junior Choir welcomes choristers from 8 to 15 years old. The basics of music are taught at the preparatory level. Each chorister progresses through the 5 levels of the choir at their own speed. The Junior Choir sings with the Senior Choir for a service approximately once a month.
