The Society of St. Vincent de Paul would like to say "Thank You" to all who gave to our annual collection on May 14th and 15th. St. Thomas the Apostle Parish has always been very supportive of our mission to help the needy in Long Beach. So when you donate cans of food, place money in the poor box, and yes, even offer prayers, this allows us to hand them over to the Lord and say, "Here is the daily bread for your people; let us help as many as we can with what we've got." There is more that can be done, for "the poor will be always with us," Jesus said. But the miracles, the small wonders, do happen.
Thank you for your donation of $4,549.00! It is not too late to donate, if you missed last week. Please drop in the collection basket, and mark St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Each Wednesday in June, starting June 1st and continuing to June 29th.
Do you look around at Mass and see drunken church-goers, then you might be a Corinthian.
If your fellow parishioners are hazy about church doctrine, then you might be a Corinthian.
Does the Pastoral Council break out into fist-fights, if so then you might be a Corinthian.
And if the priest cuts Mass short so he can get to the golf course, then you just might be a Corinthian!
If you, or someone you love, might be a Corinthian, join us as we study Saint Paul’s first letter to us.
Wednesday evenings in June. 7:00, 2nd floor, parish office complex
No pre-registration necessary.
