St. Thomas is collecting Food Donations for The Seymour Oxford Food Bank they
are in need of the following for the month of January:
- Vienna Sausages
- Beef Stew
Two of our parish staff are either now, or have been, in quarantine resulting from being in proximity to someone with the Coronavirus. If one of the parish staff contracts the Virus, that would mean the entire staff, including the Pastor, would be in quarantine for ten days. This would impact the parish by cancelling all weekday and Sunday Masses for ten days.
Therefore as of 1/1/21 I request that the St. Thomas the Apostle Staff follow the following
- There should be no more than one staff person in the office area at the same time.
During the Secretary’s Office hours 9:30AM to 2:00PM M-F. One Staff person may
come into the office before or after those hours.
- If you are to meet with someone, please use the large Conference Room on the lower
level of the Parish center with one person at the end of the table and the other person
seated at the opposite end. They may leave the building by the side bottom door.
- This may necessitate that you may have to accomplish your work remotely at home.
- Or you might find some time alone in the office on a Saturday or Sunday.
Carolyn’s Place Collection after All Masses
January 30th & January 31st
In conjunction with the National March For Life in
Washington, DC on Friday, January 29 th , St. Thomas the
Apostle Parish Nurse Ministry will be collecting money
for Carolyn’s Place in Waterbury CT. Carolyn’s Place is a
non-profit organization that offers pregnancy choices. If
someone is facing an unplanned pregnancy, Carolyn’s
Place will help them– male or female, make important
decisions about their future. The right to life is a human
right. Our defense of that right is a joyful witness to the
beauty and dignity of every human person. Please stop
by the table in the vestibule and make a donation in one
of the baby bottles next weekend. All checks should be
made out to St. Thomas the Apostle Church. Thank you
in advance for supporting this wonderful organization
that values human dignity.
