Camp Hyanto

There is just something about Camp Hyanto that brings spiritual renewal. I canít pin point exactly what it is? It could be the laughter of children, Eucharist by the campfire, Velmaís Rice Crispy squares, the beautiful view of Godís creation or the community of staff and volunteers. The one thing I do know without a doubt is that this little community beside a beautiful lake away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life is an inclusive and safe place where young people can openly pray, worship, talk about their faith and the love of Jesus.

This summer nine campers, three Leaders In Training and one staff member from St. Thomasí attended camp. We also had volunteers at two different camps. Denise Brown and Marilyn Clarkin attended Wild About Water in July and in August we sent a volunteer team to Survivor, Beth Calwell, Morgan Calwell, Rev. Brad Beale and Marilyn Clarkin all managed survive an intense week of crafts, chaplain, archery, canoeing, kayaking, survival skills, knots, nature, games, fire building and the ultimate Survivor Challenge. 

It was not all fun and games, well maybe fun, but definitely not games! The last two years Rev. Brad Beale engages us in a project. Last year it was a new step for our Adopt-a-Cabin. This years project was a huge undertaking of replacing the fire circle benches. It was pretty impressive how quickly the process went. With some intense math from and a ton prep work the fire circle came down after breakfast and was rebuilt by 2pm. A great time was had by all. It truly was a blessing to be immersed in worship, prayer, fun, and service.

Capital Campaign 2014

At a special vestry meeting held on May 4 St Thomas parishioners gave approval to a motion to proceed immediately with the repair and restoration of the churchís stained glass chancel window. The wooden frame of this window is seriously damaged by rot and full restoration could mean complete removal of the leaded panes, reconstruction of the frame and then reassembly of the entire window structure. Weather protection and security issues also need to be addressed at this time.

Repair work has begun and a capital campaign has been initiated to provide parishioners with the means of making immediate or pledged contributions in support of this project. Pledge forms are available from the office or are available for download here.

Although this campaign will continue until the end of November, it is recognized that bills will have to be paid as work progresses, therefore, it is very important that you indicate your commitment by completing this pledge and delivering it to the office as soon as possible. Any funds raised in excess of the project cost will be set aside and reserved for future capital needs.

John Gelinas has agreed to oversee this project on behalf of the wardens and he would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
