Save the Date!

Michaeli Miller and Mark Knight would like to invite you to attend the Celebration and Blessing of their marriage, to be held on October 1st at 3:30 here at St. Thomas. Mikki’s family has attended St. Thomas most of her life; she had her first communion and was confirmed here, and she would love to have as many of the congregation as would like to attend. Communion will be had, hymns will be sung, and officiant The Rt. Rev. Kee Sloan, retired Bishop, will probably tell an embarrassing story or two. Arrive a few minutes early for a lovely prelude, to be sung by Relatively Sharp (and Guests)! For more information, please call Kathy Heim at (614) 329-5991.

St. Thomas friends,


St. Thomas is fantastic! We were able to deliver 26 units of blood, a big help at a time of great need.

We did it! All of us working together. Thank you each and all! Thank you to those who signed up or walked in. Thank you to those who gave blood and to those who tried to give. Thank you to those who helped in other ways, recruiting donors, waiting patiently, making sandwiches.


Our next blood drive will be held on December 4. Please mark your calendar now to give a someone the gift of life and health this Christmas. 🎄
