The nearly-finished major pipe shades depicting the four gospels for the Miller-Scott Organ

Each month, Father Turner records an audio message which is a personal theological reflection on a particular topic. Sometimes it is about the season or festival being celebrated at Saint Thomas Church, sometimes a reflection on the life of the church in other parts of the world and at other times something that is in the news. These messages are posted toward the beginning of each month. Be sure to check latest news for updates.
