Collect:

THE FEAST OF DEDICATION

On the Feast of Dedication, we rededicate ourselves to Christ and our mission as a parish. The Feast of Dedication also serves as the launch for the 2018 Annual Appeal. We encourage you to pledge for 2018 during the months of October and November in 2017. Please consider participating in this year's appeal. No matter where you live around the globe, if you enjoy worshiping with us via the webcasts, we would appreciate your contribution.

PATRONAL FEAST DAY

The Feast of Saint Thomas falls on December 21, in late Advent just before Christmas. This makes it difficult to sufficiently celebrate our patron saint on the proper date. To remedy that problem, beginning in 2016 we also celebrate our patron and our parish on the same day that we welcome back the full Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys.

Please note that the Feast of Saint Thomas is still celebrated on December 21, as well, unless December 21 falls on a Sunday, in which case it is the Fourth Sunday of Advent. When December 21 does not fall on a Sunday, we typically observe the feast day with services in the Chantry Chapel, and, if possible, with a Festal Eucharist at 5:30pm at the High Altar.
