One faith community, two worship sites
LOVE ONE ANOTHER
29 May 2020 Volume 20
Please join us!
 
Our church is opening for public Mass this weekend! Please join us and register in advance by clicking here . If you need help registering please call the church office at (262) 534-2255. If you do not feel comfortable attending in person, Saturday 4:30 pm Mass will be live streamed. The recording will be available on our Facebook page and website immediately following. Below you will find the worship aid Christina has prepared for you in advance of the service. The music will be on the screens at St. Thomas so there is no need to bring a worship guide. Here are a few additional tips for attending Mass this weekend:
  • There will be no hymnals in the pews. If you bring a worship aid, please take it with you as it cannot be reused.
  • For those who are unable to walk up to communion, we encourage you to sit in the last row of the church marked for those needing assistance and communion will be brought to you. You may also sit in any of the chairs located along the windows. This will allow the Eucharistic ministers to deliver communion to you safely.
  • Please remember to follow the usher's instructions for processing to communion and exiting the church. It will be different than it has been in the past to increase safety for everyone.
Remember to wear RED for Pentecost!

We are excited to see many of you this weekend

This little piggy went to the market
 
John Henrichs and Henrichs Quality Meats & Show Pigs donated a pig for St. Thomas to raffle. The Knights of Columbus also stepped in and donated the processing costs.
 
Thank you!!!!!
 
Tickets are $5 a piece or 5 for $20 for a chance at 1/2 pig, fully processed. We will raffle off two winners. We are going to try and automate as much of this raffle as possible. Please go to the St. Thomas website and click on the donate page. You will be able to electronically enter the raffle by selecting the "Pig Raffle" button. Just enter a few pieces of information if you are not registered and provide a credit/debit card or account number. It's that simple and completely safe. The system will let us know your name, the number of tickets you purchased and track your payment. No tickets will be distributed. We will write your name on the number of tickets you purchase and put them in the raffle bin. If you wish to enter the raffle but really don't feel comfortable using technology, send an email to blaisebeaulier@outlook.com and he will accept checks via USPS.
 
Drawing will be held on June 21st (Father's Day).
 
Please note that due to recent events, the soonest the animal can be safely processed and ready for delivery is October but we will notify winners immediately after the drawing.
