Serving Others through Our Faith - St Thomas
Fundraising and Serving Others through Our Faith
We have a number of activities in place to help raise funds to support our Religious Education Programs, Youth Ministry Activities and people in need. Explore the information below to learn how you too can support activities for developing our Faith.
Penny Crusade: Middle School and High School students will also help raise funds to support our sponsored children through the Christian Foundation of Children and Aging. Middle and high school students will raise funds through the “Penny Crusade for Christ”, hosted by the 7th grade- Living Our Faith Class. Before the 7:00pm start of class, students will be tossing coins into buckets set up in the church hall. Each student be asked to bring in loose change and dollars for a friendly competition between classes to raise funds. Pennies will count as a positive number, silver coins will count as a negative number and dollars will count as a double positive number. Classes compete to raise the most funds for their grade level.
Food Pantry Donations are collected at youth masses. In addition, annually, our high school students gather food pantry donations from area residents as part of their 7th grade curricula.
