Here's what's happening at St. T's...

Fr. Kevin's Farewell Weekend

Please join us as we say farewell to Fr. Kevin.  It has been an amazing 19 years and he will be so missed by all.

The weekend of June 225-26, 2016 Fr. Kevin will be celebrating his final weekend Masses here at St. T's.  Following Masses we will have a reception in Avila Hall in his honor.  All are welcome to attend.  

Welcome Fr. Chris!!

The weekend of July 2-3 will be  

Fr. Chris’ official Welcome Weekend.

He will be celebrating all the Masses that weekend and following the Masses we will have a “Meet ‘n Greet” in Avila Hall.  This will be a great time to say a quick hello and welcome him to St. T’s. 

He will also be celebrating Daily Masses starting on Monday, July 4, at 9:00am and Tuesday and Thursday at 8:00am.  (Don’t worry….Fr. Rich has not left us!!  Fr. Rich will celebrate Wednesday Masses at 5:15pm)

Invite Fr. Chris to Your Family Dinner 

Fr. Chris has set aside some evenings in July and August that he is available to attend your family/friends dinner.  This is a great opportunity to meet with Fr. Chris in a more personal setting.  Invite a few of your friends from St. T’s, your fellow commission members, your CRHP families, your youth group teens, or your Café Manna teams (you get the idea) over for dinner and invite Fr. Chris as well.  This is a great chance for him to meet more community members and get to know you!!! 

If you are interested in setting a date, give Christine a call and she can let you know what dates are available for your dinner party!!!   

Hey Campers!  St. T’s Camping

Join the St. T’s Community for a group camping outing at the Indiana Dunes State Park the weekend of September 23-25, 2016.
