Community Outreach

Community Reach


The focus agency for January is Jericho Ministries. Outreach contributions are welcome using your blue pledge envelope, writing a check to St. Thomas of Canterbury and putting “Outreach” on the memo line, or through your electronic transfer account.



The Canterbury TALES is published the second Tuesday of each month.  If you, as a member of the St. Thomas of Canterbury community, wish to have information included in the TALES, please send me an e-mail at or place the information in my mailbox in the parish office.  Information to be included should be sent the weekend before the second Tuesday of the month.  The TALES is one outlet for disseminating information to parish members, so working together we can foster open communication for all.                            -Pam Kasper

Counters Needed


The financial team is looking for individuals to join our counting team.  You work in teams and are responsible to count the offering after the 10:00 am service.  Commitment is about once every 6 weeks. Please contact either Kris Reed or Tammy Wyman for more information. 

Mystery Dinner Theater


We are hosting a Mystery Dinner Theater event on Saturday, Feb.18th beginning at 6:00 pm.  This event is a fund raiser for the church and is open to the public.  Tickets are $30 per person.  See the Flyer in the Narthex for more information and contact Shelly Wawrzonek or Lisa Chmielewski for tickets.

Recording Treasurer Needed

Doing the accounting.

The financial team is in need of a person to assist with the deposits and record keeping of weekly donations.  You would be responsible to come to church every other Monday or Tuesday evening to verify the weekly offering, put together the deposit and key information into our pledging system.  If you want to learn more and/or are interested, please contact either Kris Reed or Tammy Wyman.  

Hosting Coffee Hour

It is that time of year again to sign up to be coffee hour hosts for 2017.  We are looking for 12 families (you can pair up with another parishioner too) which would mean only serving about once every quarter.  We are using an online system so you get to pick that date that works best for you.  We also would love to have individuals give hosting a try so you can sign up for one time to see if this is a ministry for you.  Please add your name to the signup sheet in the office.  If you have any questions, please see Angie Bier or Tammy Wyman.
