HOW TO CONTRIBUTE Since our Community here at St. Thomas’ is not a legal entity, we need to have our finances run through the books of St. Kateri Parish. Therefore, checks should be made payable to “St. Kateri Tekakwitha-Latin Mass Community” OR for short, “SKT-LMC”. Contributions can be placed in the blue envelopes OR loose in the collection baskets. Contributions deposited in envelopes from neighboring parishes will be returned to those home parishes and will not be credited to SKT-LMC. SKT-LMC envelopes deposited in neighboring parish collections will be returned and credited to us.
IF YOU HAVE FOUND A SPIRITUAL HOME in our Latin Mass Community here at St. Thomas’, please consider registering with us. Use the census forms found at the entrance door tables. On the top write in clear letters “LMC”. Place form in the collection basket. Welcome!
WOMEN’S CARE CENTER FUNDRAISER!
Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the Women’s Care Center, a crisis pregnancy center located in Charlotte, is excited to host Bishop Salvatore Matano at a fundraising dinner on Thursday, May 28, at the Harro East Ballroom (155 North Chestnut Street). The evening begins with a social hour (cash bar) at 6 p.m. followed by complimentary dinner at 7 p.m. There will be an opportunity to make a donation to the Center. Please make your reservation by contacting 585-544-7604. Join us for a special Mass offered for the Center at Our Lady of Victory, 210 Pleasant Street, at 5 p.m.
WE DO NEED VOLUNTEERS to help maintain our facilities, especially in the area of church and parish center cleaning. We need YOU! Please email [email protected] or call 467-8747. Enough volunteers will enable us to have rotating teams.
ARE YOU THINKING of WRITING A LETTER OF GRATITUDE to Bishop Salvatore Matano for re-activating St. Thomas the Apostle as the home of the St. Kateri Tekakwitha Latin Mass Community? His address is: 1150 Buffalo Road, Rochester, NY 14624. Let your letter be sincere and brief!
WE ARE PLANNING to have a MAY CROWNING CEREMONY in honor of Our Blessed Lady next SUNDAY at the beginning of both Masses. It will involve the procession to her sanctuary shrine, a brief prayer, and the crowning of the statue. A simple but meaningful ceremony, acknowledging Our Lady’s QUEENSHIP over us, over our lives, and over our Community.
COFFEE HOUR TODAY in the Parish Center, after both Masses. Will you join us?
