The next Eucharistic Celebration at St.Thomas is Saturday, November 6 at 5 pm for Jack Burns

Mass of Remembrance Honoring those who have died in the last year. This mass includes our St.Thomas parish Sunday, November 7, 4 pm at 4pm at the Church of St. Thomas.

Bernice Odenthal Michel passed away October 28th. Visitation is at the Bruzek Funeral Home with
Mass of Christian Burial at St.Nicholas Church in New Market.at 10 am on Thursday. The daughter of Ted and Gertrude “Gertie” Glizcinski Odenthal, with her siblings, grew to adulthood in the shadow of the St.Thomas Church. A warm, friendly personality with an easy laugh, Bernice married Francis Michell in a beautiful wedding at St. Scholastica. This writer's sister, Diane Burns Palmstein, enjoyed being their flowergirl. Bernice is predeceded in death by her husband and her brother “Billy”. Our sincere sympathy to Bernice's family , Bob, Deb, JoAnn, Mark and Chuck, and to her brothers and sisters, Rosemary Burns, Donald and Connie Odenthal and Dorothy Patterson.

First Timer at the Eyeball this week was Aric Holicky from Le Center, 24, friend of Davie's and Neil's brother. “No wife, No prospects...no kids”...and he's got a cute boyish grin.

A few St.Thomas folks attended Jared and Lenny's party at the Cornersrtone Stables, Saturday evening, as they celebrated their 5th Anniversary. Guests enjoyed live music by the fabulous Abbott Blues Band, great food and were able to tour the arena, stables, and see the magnificent horses. Those guys know how to throw a party!

Bruce and Cathy's family costumed up and gathered at the farm for a Halloran Halloween party.
Tom and Loni's family also gathered, dressed in disguises for a Halloween hayride, bobbed for apples, and enjoyed ghouly food.
Tim Marsolais is “officially finished with Basic Training and has started AIT (Advanced Infantry Training, MP). This week he gets his learners permit on the Humvee and they go to the 9 mm range. God help us, they are giving him more guns!”

“My mother told us her memories of the church being built from the donations from the founding families of people working together, struggling to built a church they could unite around, on a bend in the road that became our center and our name.”
“This closing of the church will not only leave us without a religious community, but it will destroy the heart and soul of our community, our very identity that which has not only defined us, but strengthened us and held us together..which we still need.” Excerpt from last week's St.Thomas News BPH written by Mary Grace O'Brien.
Her mother, Alice Halloran Burns, baptized at St.Thomas in August 1892...and laid to rest in November of 1992.

About forty folks from the St. Thomas parish attended the Stategic Planning Meeting, held here in our St.Thomas Church Basement Thursday evening.... to try to stop the insanity, or just try to understand it... to find some kind of sense in it. We all left feeling beaten. As we appeal the closing of our church, men from the Archdiocese of St.Paul came to tell us what we're going to do and reminded us that the “Catholic Religion is not a Democracy”. We know, but we've never felt the Dictorship...Til Now. The only mention of God at this church meeting was in Father Dave's opening and closing prayers.

Our precious St.Thomas Church ...where we were taught “God is everywhere” ...where the spirits of our Dearly Departed gather, where we feel the presence of God... and the love of Jesus. We know... they are here!

It is so sad,how anyone could think of changing the status of St Thomas,it seems nothing is sacred.
