St Thomas is still in need for new Eucharistic Ministers for Holy Communion at the 8:00am and 11:00am masses. We have one vacancy to fill at the 8:00am mass, and two vacancies to fill at the 11am mass. Please consider volunteering for this liturgical ministry as a way of giving back to God for blessings received. See Deacon David for more information or if you are interested.

The Ladies Morning Scripture Study are meeting on Wednesday’s at 10:00 AM in the St. Joseph’s Room with The Eucharist in Scripture. This study will discover God’s plan as it is expressed through the Bible and the Mass. This six-lesson study, presented by Dr. Scott Hahn, will unlock the meaning of covenant, sacrifice, and sacrament as understood in the Bible, from Genesis through Revelation. The Eucharist in Scripture examines the biblical foundations of the Eucharist and explores the Church’s liturgy as the original context for the books of the Bible. All ladies are welcome to attend. Call Debbie at 205-616-0920 if you have any questions.
We are in our second year of the National Eucharistic Revival. This second phase will foster Eucharistic devotion at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through faithful celebration of the Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, and movements of the Holy Spirit. With this in mind, the Wednesday Night Scripture Study Group will explore Eucharist: Discovering the Mass in the Bible Acclaimed author and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre digs down to the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching. We'll discover firsthand how Christ's Body and Blood are an integral and wondrous part of God's plan for our salvation. We meet each Wednesday at 7:00 PM in the St. Joseph’s room. All are invited to attend. Questions? Call Bill or Deb at 205-515-1927.
