    DIOCESAN-WIDE CONFIRMATION MASS

    FOR ADULTS

    Are you a baptized Catholic who fell through the cracks when it came to the Sacrament of Confirmation?

    Many, many adults never received the Sacrament

    through no fault of their own. So many reasons: Your

    family had to move in the year of your Confirmation

    age; conflicts with extra-curricular activities; or

    maybe you were werent emotionally or spiritually

    ready as a teenager. Bishop Stika will be celebrating a

    Confirmation Mass for baptized Catholics who have

    never been confirmed on September 13, 2015 at

    5:00pm at Sacred Heart Cathedral. If you are a

    Catholic in good standing and desire to be enriched

    with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, call now for an

    appointment with Fr. Doug or Fr. Julian. You may be

    surprised to find out how easy it will be for you to be

    confirmed at last!

    COMMUNION SERVICES

    There will not be Daily Masses the following

    Mondays: August 3, 10, and 17.

    Communion Antiphon for August:

    I am the bread of life. All who eat this

    bread will never die.

    I am Gods love revealed. I am broken

    that you might be healed.

    FOOD EVENT THANK YOU!!

    The Knoxville Council of Catholic Women want to

    thank all St. Thomas parishioners that came out on

    Saturday, July 25th

    to help bag 10,152 meals for the

    children in Burkina Faso, West Africa. After raising

    $5,000 we set the date to complete the project.

    Kevin Cooney, Youth Minister, asked his youth group

    to volunteer at 10:00 am to help unload 50 lb.

    Packages of food and other supplies. And boy did

    they help they helped at 10 am and stayed to

    complete the Stop Hunger Now project sponsored by

    CRS (Catholic Relief Services). Some of the men that

    volunteered to unload the truck, stood back and

    watched with smiles as the youth gave their all to get

    us unloaded and set up in record time. After set up,

    it took the 110 volunteers from all over the diocese,

    less than 2 hours to bag 10,152 meals. Each package

    will serve a family of 6 in Burkina Faso. This project is

    going on all over the US; go to the Stop Hunger Now

    site to learn more. Again, a warm THANK YOU to all.

    SHARE TABLE

    A Share Table will be outside the church after all

    Masses for anyone who wishes to share their home

    produce with others.

  • THE LORD HEARS THE CRY OF THE

    POOR - PSALM 34

    A story about faith and Gods love alive here in our

    parishfrom the heart and hands of our newly-

    formed Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

    Through the Holy Spirit and the people of God who

    have hearts to bring Gods love to the poor, a single

    mother with four children is filled with gratitude to God

    and the members from our Society of St. Vincent de

    Paul who prayed with her and helped her avoid a

    financial crisis.

    This single mother came to us with a large water bill.

    She had a water leak which created a utility bill of

    $648.00. She faced an imminent shut-off notice. Not

    knowing where to turn, she came to the church; and St.

    Thomas the Apostles Society of St. Vincent de Paul

    came to her aid.

    Two of our society members visited and prayed with her

    at her home. Together, they prayed to the Holy Spirit

    for guidance. After visiting and praying with her, the St.

    Vincent de Paul team suggested an amount that she

    might pay, while we would contribute the remainder of

    the utility bill.

    She was very hopeful that she would be able to do this

    and so grateful for the prayers and presence of the

    society members. During a time of mutual prayer led by

    our Vincentians, she received a phone call but chose not

    to answer her phone, so as not to interrupt the moment

    of prayer. We later found out that this was a very

    important call and an answer to that same prayer.

    Our practice is to always reach
