We Had a Flea Market on Saturday

On Saturday, St. Thomas's sponsored a Flea Market as a fundraiser for the parish. We had pretty good weather and several vendors come. Our ECW chapter put together a great cons=cession stand, and several parishioners even took turns at a St. Thomas table. We made a few hundred dollars but more importantly, set it up for even a bigger event next year. I think everyone had a good time and it was great to see so many people come out and support the work we're doing. (I need to do a better job of putting events up on my blog before the event!)

Almighty and everliving God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, hear our prayers for this parish family. Strengthen the faithful, arouse the careless, and restore the penitent. Grant us all things necessary for our common life, and bring us all to be of one heart and mind within your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP. p. 817)
