Letter from Father Jantz
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
With all the warm weather, and Memorial Day on the horizon next weekend, it’s definitely starting to feel like summer is on the way! We still have some Easter sacraments to celebrate (with Confirmation coming up soon!), but I’d like to take the opportunity this week to discuss an important summer event at the parish: Vacation Bible School, from 27 June to 1 July.
VBS is something of an institution in the South, and as I’ve discovered over the last couple months of planning, it’s a strong tradition here at St. Thomas, as well. It’s truly a fine occasion: a mini summer camp that brings together parishioners of all ages. Although it’s called “school,” I would really call VBS more of an experience: both of God in Scripture and of each other in the community.
Our parish VBS this year, “Monumental,” focuses on developing a love of celebrating God’s greatness. The program has a Southwestern theme that I think will make for some fun cross-cultural engagement, as well. As a parish, we will also include a specifically Catholic perspective, through the daily practice of praying the Rosary.
I very warmly invite all our students (from 3 years old to those starting 5th grade) to participate. And for all parishioners who are young at heart, you’re invited to get involved as a volunteer. For details about how to register and get involved, please see the bulletin announcement below.
As we enter the summer months, let’s continue to seek the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary and our patron St. Thomas, so that both our work and our leisure will be devoted to God.

Clases de RCIA Para Adultos 9/13
La Parroquia de Santo Tomás comenzará las sesiones el domingo 13 de septiembre para aquellos que estén interesados en recibir sacramentos de iniciación. El proceso se llama el rito de la iniciación cristiana. Este proceso de la RCIA es para personas que no han sido bautizadas, personas que han sido bautizadas en otra tradición cristiana que desean convertirse en católicas, y católicos adultos que han sido bautizados, pero que no han sido confirmados. La RCIA será la única sesión presencia en persona que se ofrece en Santo Tomás este primer semestre. Las sesiones serán los domingos de 9:30 AM a 10:45 AM. Las sesiones en inglés se reunirán en el Salón Parroquial, y las sesiones en español se reunirán en la Sala de San José. Debido a la necesidad de distanciamiento social, las únicas personas que podrán asistir a estas sesiones serán los candidatos, sus cónyuges y sus padrinos.
