On Sunday November 10 after the 10:00 am service, children of all ages are invited to join Tami for a hands-on, age-appropriate session on the Holy Eucharist. It is the teaching of the Episcopal church that all baptized Christians, no matter what their ages, may receive communion. First communion is not a sacrament in our tradition; infants will often receive communion for the first time on their baptismal day. However, some parent still wish their children to wait for a period of time before receiving the sacrament. Whether your children have been receiving for years or if they have not yet received but are interested in doing so, this will be an opportunity for them to learn what it's all about, ask questions, get up close to the altar and handle everything, and learn great words like ciborium, sacristy, chasuble and more! We will have a light lunch together and plan on the class running from 11:30 to 1:00. Please RSVP to Tami at associatestthomas@gmail.com so she knows how many kids to plan on. If you have questions, please reach out to her as well.

ASP was such a rewarding experience, we will go again in 2020! This time, we head to Chavies, Kentucky, not far from our last location in Jonesville, Virginia. We have selected Chavies as it will enable us to take more adults to this location than Jonesville. For those of you who were unable to go last year because of the limit on adult participants, this is for you! 

The particulars are these: 

  • This is for ages 14 through adult. 
  • We will leave St. Thomas on Saturday, June 27th and return Sunday, July 5th. We will spread the drive over two days, as we did this year. 
  • You do not need to own any tools. The only items you will need are earplugs, safety glasses, and work gloves. All of these items can be purchased at Home Depot for a total cost of around $25.
  • We will provide a skills workshop this winter and again in the spring (if necessary) to teach you basic tool use and painting skills.
  • You will need a sleeping bag and pillow for the bunk rooms (that are air conditioned). There are standard bathrooms, and cafeteria-like food service. In addition to working on house repair, we will be assigned chores at the Chavies headquarters where we will be staying.
  • The cost all-inclusive is $525. This covers the registration fee, the ASP charge, meals on the road (last year we had 3 breakfasts, 2 dinners, and 1 lunch on the road), incidentals (ice cream, treats, and a movie), gas for the cars. We do this as to ensure no one has to carry money or cards with them. We can offer a few scholarships or partial assistance.

Interested, but want more information about the experience? Speak with Tom and Allana Condon, Lisa and Sam Dalsimer, or Paul and Isaiah Shikany. If you are ready to sign up, see Mother Carol for registration materials.
