He sends forth His Word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction.

Psalm 107:20

Dear Lord,

Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
All that you say in your Word is true.
Your Word never sleeps. Your Word is active. It will be actively working in me to change me both in the day and in the night.
Lord, at the Word of your direction, I will proceed to do what you say.
I will have faith in what you say.
Thank you that you are cleansing and purifying my mind with your Word.
My mind will be set on your Power and your Compassion.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

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 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.
