Participation: Christian Kindness & Hospitality

At St. Thomas, we practice Stewardship as a Way of Life.  We participate.  We prayerfully consider which personal talents and skills we possess and gratefully share with God through our parish and our community.  

The Pillar of Stewardship on which will focus this week of our RSVP campaign is that of HOSPITALITY.  Jesus Christ teaches that whenever we welcome one of the least of our sisters and brothers, we welcome Christ Himself.  Being hospitable is extending this Christian kindness to all who we meet, at church and in our community.  

At St. Thomas, we try to build an interconnected and engaged community through cultivating an environment of hospitality.  We do this through immediately engaging new parishioners, infusing a mentality of hospitality throughout, maintaining connections with parishioners who can no longer attend parish events, and proving many opportunities for parish fellowship throughout the year.  

Our Lenten Soup & Bread Suppers Apostolate is a perfect example of parish hospitality.  Through this Apostolate, parishioners provide parish fellowship through hosting soup and bread meals following the evening Stations of the Cross on Fridays during Lent.  

At St. Thomas, we practice Stewardship as a Way of Life.  We are hospitable and extend Christian kindness to all we meet.  We participate through hospitality.
