Tuesday Chats with Brad

Join Fr. Brad, every Tuesday for 6 weeks starting 23rd of February on zoom at 7:00 PM. An opportunity to keep in touch with others, and dig a bit into the weekly readings, in a very relaxed and comfortable forum. These discussions will focus on the Epistle and Gospel for the upcoming Sunday in Lent.. 

Hi all - Our Tuesday discussion group is going to continue beyond the Lenten season, as the folks attending asked if we would do so.  Everyone and anyone is welcome.  We meet over Zoom for about an hour from 7 p.m. -8 p.m.  It is a relaxed and conversational environment, centered on the readings for the upcoming Sunday each week.  People are welcome to ‘pop in’ or ‘pop out’ at their convenience.  Call the office or email office@stthomasbelleville.ca to register before noon for the zoom link.  Brad


 

 

The weekly "Offering" began in April 2020 as a means of " Keeping in Touch" during the covid-19 pandemic. 

Each week readers will hopefully find support, comfort, and joy revealed in topics of their personal journey of faith,

life, family, and food.

Important Notice

Please check this website on a regular basis for updates

 

March 30, 2021- EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:

Once again St. Thomas church returns to a full lock down of all in person activities due to the rapid increase in cases locally. Further details to follow. 

 Message from Fr. Brad

 

It is with a heavy heart that we must let the congregation know that in view of last night’s new directive from the local public health unit, and concern over the dramatic and exponential increase in local Covid cases, that we need to suspend in- person worship again. We do not know currently how long the suspension might last. Though many of us will be sad to hear this, we must remember that it is of the most importance that we do our absolute best to keep others safe, and that we must never falter in our vigilance in this regard. We will continue with our online services of course.

As difficult as this is, I keep thinking of psalm 30, verse 11. It’s a statement of hope on the horizon.

“You have turned my mourning into dancing; you have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.”

Though that day is not here yet, it will surely come, and how great our joy will be when it does. Ours is to wait just a little longer, just a little, and we shall gather again, and hug again, and see friends again, and not be afraid. Hang in there, my friends, and we will surely get through this.

Your brother in Christ, Brad

 

Volunteer Opportunity

TGIF Frozen Dinner preparation

Alternate Mondays, 8:30 am – 1:00 pm

As you may know, a small group of volunteers has carried on the St. Thomas effort to prepare and donate 120 frozen dinners for distribution to those in need. What was a once-a-month activity with a over a dozen volunteers before COVID, has since morphed into an every-other-week cooking session with a roster of only 4 volunteers. As we head into the colder seasons and a possible “second wave", the need for these frozen meals is expected to increase. 

Now that we are more aware of how COVID spreads and the best ways to protect ourselves, perhaps you might consider joining our small team?

We cook at Bridge St. United as it is a much larger kitchen that allows for social distancing at all times. There is a maximum of 6 people allowed in the kitchen at any given time. We wear masks the entire time and are extra careful about hand washing and sanitization. 

Our partnership with Bridge St. United on this front has been very successful and a testament to what we as Christians can do when we work together.

Please contact the office at 613 962-3636 for further information.

Respectfully

Sheila Stanley

Kitchen user education

The Kitchen Manual can be found as a download in the Resource section of this website. This should be read periodically by all users to keep updated. Any questions should be directed to the church kitchen management team. This is important for insurance purposes.

Education sessions for those requiring supervisor training or those wishing an update will be held as needed. Please give your name to the office and the Kitchen Team will get back to you with the time of the next session. The education only takes about half an hour, but it’s a vital part of our compliance with local health and safety regulations, now that we have been approved to cook and serve food to the general public.

Register for training through the office by phoning 613 962-3636 or emailing office@stthomasbelleville.ca.
