St. Thomas Aquinas Weekly Update – July 25
Visit the Courtyard
Did you know everyone now has access to our lovely courtyard? Prayer, reflection and meditation seem to happen spontaneously while sitting in the tranquility of the garden and gazing upon a beautiful representation of our Mother. The statue of our Lord’s most Merciful Heart has been given a place of prominence in the front where all who pass by are reminded of His amazing grace and endless mercy.
Father Sullivan continues to lead the discussions on Bishop Robert Barron’s series, “The Pivotal Players.” The next session is Wednesday, July 31st, at 7:00 p.m. in the Aquinas Room and will consider the witness of Blessed John Henry Newman (soon to be canonized). Come and spend time adoring our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament before or after the session.
During the entire month of August, we will collect new underwear for children and adults, all sizes, male and female. Donations must be new and in its original package or still have the tags attached. Donations will be distributed to helping organizations throughout our community, including guests of the warming shelter.
SOS – Servants of the Shelter
The next SOS meeting is Tuesday, August 6, 6 – 7 p.m. in Rosary Hall. The winter season will be upon us soon and we need to be ready to shelter and serve our homeless neighbors. Everyone is encouraged to participate in this ecumenical and corporeal work of mercy. A listing of needs and volunteer opportunities will soon be available.
