WELCOME to our NEW MINISTER DEACON JIM MIORELLI
Deacon Jim Miorelli, from St. Paul’s in Mt. Lebanon, began serving as a deacon at St. Thomas on Sunday, June 11th. Jim lives in Collier Twp. with his wife, Karen, and adult son, Michael, in the house where he grew up. He works full-time for PPG as a Product Manager for Digital Services. He wants to serve a parish part-time, eventually as a priest when he finishes those requirements in 6 months to a year. Deacon Jim will serve alongside Canon Cathy during worship, and she will mentor him as he learns to address St. Thomas’ needs for clergy leadership after her retirement at the end of July. Please introduce yourself to Deacon Jim and keep him in your prayers as he gets acclimated to his new ministry roles in our parish.
After nearly 8 years of serving St. Thomas as the Priest-in-Charge, Canon Cathy Brall has retired.
She plans to work on the many delayed maintenance issues of her home and to travel, visiting family and friends around the country.
We all wish Canon Cathy a wonderful retirement. She will be missed dearly by her flock.

COMPLINE SERVICES ON ZOOM THURSDAY EVENINGS AT 8:30PM
Sharing Compline twice a week is a meaningful way for people to gather for worship during these times of social isolation.
On Tuesday and Thursday evenings we check in for a few minutes with others to share our joys and concerns.
Compline is the last prayer service of each day – a brief time (about 10 minutes) to gather to “say goodnight” to God and one another.
The Compline Service is found in the Book of Common Prayer (p. 127-135) and appears on the screen for those who log into Zoom on a computer, iPad, or other device.
If you phone in on one of the numbers listed below, you can follow along in your own Prayer Book. The Zoom instructions for joining in this lovely time of prayer are below.
