Knights’ Thanksgiving Dinner deliveries
 

The St. Thomas Knights of Columbus have been serving Thanksgiving dinners for seniors, shut-ins and others in need in the Camas/Washougal area on Thanksgiving Day. We now prepare about 530 meals at St. Thomas and deliver them to the homes of those in need. Last year we delivered over 500 dinners. If you know anyone that is in need of a dinner, please call: Treasure House 360-834-4181, Al Schmid 360-835-5346 or East County Family Resource Center 360-835-7802.

Your donations will help defer the cost and we would greatly appreciate any support that you can give. We could use turkeys that are unfrozen by Tuesday night (Nov. 20), pies may be delivered up until 10:00 am on Thursday (Thanksgiving) morning. Drivers are needed to deliver the meals and please arrive between 11:30 and 11:45 am on Thanksgiving morning. Please make donations to the Camas & Washougal Thanksgiving Dinner Fund at Riverview Community Bank in Camas or Washougal. Thank you!

 

 

 

SVdP Giving Tree

It’s that time again! The SVdP Giving Tree will be up on Saturday, November 17th in the vestibule. The decorative tags express the needs and wishes of approximately 20 of our local families that we will be helping this year. Please consider taking a tag or two off the tree. Your generosity will help bring joy to many on Christmas day. Your wrapped gift(s) with the gift tag(s) attached to the box(s) are due back by 1 p.m. on Sunday, December 16th. Please place your gift(s) inside the large box by the Saint Thomas statue. God bless you for your generosity!

"I would like to ask you:  Have you sometimes heard the voice of the Lord, which through a desire, a certain restlessness, invites you to follow him more closely? Have you heard it?"--Pope Francis, Regina Caeli, April 21, 2013

If you have heard the voice of the Lord stirring in your heart or have questions about joining or returning to the Catholic Church we welcome you and invite you to contact our parish office for more information about how we can serve you.

Some level of Safe Environment training is required for all church employees and volunteers. Parishioners are also able to take this training to learn more about this important topic.
