Thank you!!!!
Thank you to Nick Humphrey - the owner of Inkspot here in town for the community shred event & food drive you put on! St. Thomas received a generous amount of food for our food pantry. Our clients will be so happy. Many thanks again to Nick and his team for hosting this wonderful event and supporting St. Thomas.
The cow will be turned loose at 3 pm this Sunday June 7 at a farm in Franksville and we will patiently wait for her to do her duty. Good luck to all who entered and THANK YOU for supporting St. Thomas. We were able to sell two sets of tickets so we will have 2 grand prize winners and 8 additional touching square winners. We were planning to attach pictures of the randomly drawn grids for all to see. However, concerns were raised regarding the practice of providing people's names, addresses and phone numbers electronically. For this reason, we will not be able to provide pictures of the game boards. Please be patient as we try to find new and safe ways to have fun. Be assured the boards are safely stored in the rectory office and we will notify the winners next week. Our apologies for not being able to communicate spot locations more easily. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact
We hope you used Sign Up Genius to register for this weekend's mass. This weekend will again utilize worship aids and you can obtain a copy by clicking the button below.

Only 2 weeks left
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.

As we reopen our two worship sites and begin working our way back to normal, we will be moving to a once a week combined newsletter for the parishes beginning on Friday June 12th. We appreciate your understanding as we enter this next phase and hope that you will continue to enjoy "staying connected" electronically with your parish family.

We would like to highlight and thank a few of our loyal sponsors in each email.
St. Thomas thanks you very much!
A complete list of all our sponsors can be found on our website. Please support them whenever possible
