Last weekend, members of the Saint Thomas School, Class of 1960 returned to be with us as they celebrated the 50th Anniversary of their Graduation from grammar school.  The members of the class had fond memories and great love for our Parish.  Many expressed fondness for those long past who participated in helping them to become who they are today.  All present showed their deep and special bond with Saint Thomas the Apostle.  How blessed we were to host their visit in this our 100th Anniversary year celebration.

After attending the 11 AM Mass and touring the school buildings, I had the opportunity to speak with our guests about the Saint Thomas of today.  Please know how grateful they were to see that the vibrant Saint Thomas they knew and loved was still vibrant as a place of prayer, activities and generous people.  Many commented on how wonderful it was to see children at Mass and crowded Masses!  At the end of their visit, the class presented a gift to our parish which be added in their name as part of our upcoming Centennial Capital Campaign.  Please join me in expressing our deep gratitude to all past and present who share with us this most special place in Woodhaven.

Looking ahead, the costs associated with our capital repair projects are being carefully compiled and considered.  In the same way, work is occurring on the Capital – Fund Raising Campaign which will help us pay for the work to be accomplished.  In short, exterior work will be done on the Church and emergency repairs on the façade of Monsignor Mulz Hall will be completed. Once the exteriors are water proof, the interior projects for the Church will be considered.   In the weeks to come, a full schedule of these repairs will be presented along with the request that we ALL help in meeting these much needed expenses.

Please continue to pray for the success of all our works.
