The smell of Fall is in the air.  The kids are in school, the temperatures in the early morning hours are cool, and the football season is underway.  This Fall has not arrived without its unique challenges, particularly the Delta Virus rearing its ugly head and the impact it has had on our hospitals, schools and families.  This challenge has led us to postpone and/or cancel our annual Parish Picnic and PCCW Rummage & Pie Sale.  These events have been great experiences in the past and will be missed; yet, we will get through the many challenges we face because we carry a bigger vision of faith and move ahead as disciples of Jesus.

Faith Formation for our children, youth and adults is underway.  I am grateful for the many catechists and group leaders who have continued to step-up to share the faith with our youth.  RCIA has commenced and we have over ten people interested in joining the Catholic church.  The children of St. Francis School have begun to join us for Mass on Thursdays.  It is a delight to have their faith and energy back!  And, as you have heard, we had 22 families join us during the month of August.  Families have continued to join this month, as well.  Great things continue to happen as we strive to live out the Gospel in our parish, community and families.  God is alive!  The Holy Spirit is moving!
Continue to check our website and/or Facebook page to see pictures of the many different liturgical celebrations - celebrations of Eucharist, Baptisms and weddings.  These wonderful pictures of these faith-filled experiences will bring a smile to your face.

Of course, these good things could not happen without your participation and support.  At St. Thomas the Apostle, we are blessed with so many good people.  Thank you for your continued prayer, your volunteer hours and your financial support.  You are a key member of the Body of Christ.

Let's stay alive in Christ,

Fr. Steve Zabrocki, pastor
