Jesus said to his disciples: “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12). It is because of the imperative in this commandment that we extend care to each other within the St. Thomas community. In our conversations at coffee hour, at Bible study, and during Sunday School, we strive to support each other in any way possible.
When a baby is born, when someone is ill, when a teen is moving on to college, we seek to support one other through the transition. Volunteer Lay Eucharistic Ministers make themselves available to visit those who are home-bound so that they, too, can participate in the life of the community through partaking of the Eucharist.
