Charity and Development Appeal

“Let us open our eyes and see the misery of the world, the wounds of our brothers and sisters who are denied their dignity...” – Pope Francis The annual Charity and Development Appeal (CDA) provides critical funding to over 70 programs and organizations across the Diocese. The CDA serves the basic needs of our large and fast growing community beyond what any one parish or community can do alone. Together we can achieve more. With your gift to the CDA, you heed the call to be an instrument of God’s mercy. For more information or to donate online, visit dphx.org/cda. Thank you for your support.

She is looking forward to getting to know the parishioners at Saint Thomas and helping to plug them in to areas that they feel the Lord is calling them to serve. “Saint Thomas the Apostle was my parish when I served at Maggie's Place so in a very real way, it feels like I am coming home. I love the foundation and community at Saint Thomas and am so excited to be part of it again.” Brittany graduated with a Bachelor's degree in English from NAU and has served in the non-profit field in the areas of event management and program development.Brittany takes inspiration from Saint Mother Teresa, “She was the catalyst for my conversion to the Church and taught me what ‘love in action’ looks like.”Join us in giving Brittany a warm welcome to Saint Thomas!

For 4th-7th graders, the Bible’s best-known women tell their own stories. From Noah’s wife to Lydia, follower of Paul, these distinctly voiced women give readers new ways to think about familiar Bible stories. Noah’s wife explains the tedium as well as the joys of being on an ark full of animals; Rachel holds her son Joseph with trepidation as her husband, Jacob, goes to meet his wronged brother, Esau; Martha and Mary fight about who was sup-posed to do the dishes when Jesus came to their house; and Mary Magdalene admits what her life was like before she came to Jesus and details the shock of his resurrection.

Building Virtues Update

Our Saint Thomas the Apostle Conference of Saint Vincent de Paul was first started in May, 1952. We were the sixth conference to be established in the Diocese of Phoenix. In the early days of our conference all the members were men, but now there is an equal mix...with many women serving in officer’s roles. We currently have 58 members and have been very blessed in the last year with amazing recruitment efforts. Father Steve has been very instrumental in this success, as he has encouraged us to have numerous new volunteer drives and is supportive in every way imaginable. We are so blessed!

Our current slate of conference officers are: President John Winters, Spiritual Advisor Chris Quintenz, First Vice President John Mulligan, Second Vice President Michele Baldasano, Treasurer Bob Klein and Secretary Romano Cedillos.

Last year we:
•Delivered 1,244 food boxes to 3,732 people
•Helped over 145 families with rent
•Provided $12,243 in utility assistance saving many families from electric, gas and water shut offs.
•125 Christmas turkey boxes to families in need. The parish and school also greatly helped by supply-ing gift cards and Christmas stockings for the chil-dren.

Our conference has teams of volunteers going out on home visits 6 days/week and takes messages for assistance 24/7. We have volunteers who re-trieve and answer the calls that have been left on our answering machine daily. This is unique...as we are one of only a handful of conferences that offer such a quick response time. The majority of calls we receive are requesting food boxes, while about 20% of the calls are for rent, utility assistance or other needs. So many of the calls for food boxes also mention the need for shampoo, toothpaste and other hygiene items and Our Lady’s Sodality provides us amazing kits for this purpose. So many blessings surround us!

Every week there are various requests such assistance with dental needs, cloth-ing, even help with a resume and a job search that encour-age us to “think outside the box” and be resourceful. We have a saying, “That no service is foreign to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul”. We know that Our Lord wants us to listen to all needs presented before us! Thank you to all in our parish who pray for us and support us in our mission to serve and love those who are struggling.

Many thanks to the following conference volunteers, who joined hands over the past year, with a com-bined 3,470 hours of service to families in need:

Jenny Allen, Michele Baldasano, Jessica Barranco, Dotty Bock, Doug & Carolyn Both, Chris Brown Toni Brownell, Romano Cedillos , John Ciani , John Ciminski, Kevin Cooney, Bill Cronin, Rod Crotty Julie Douglas, Chris, Tom & Will Engelthaler, Margaret & Manny Fernandez, Dianne Flammer,Paulette Gaffney, Shaun Gal-lagher, Phil Genovese, Tim Gins-bach, Tony Guido, Micaela Hain, Sue Holloway, Betty Johnson, Pat Kenny, Camp Ker-sten, Bob Klein, Joe Koeprick, Dick & Betty Kowalski, Micaela Larkin, Mike Larkin, Steve Lillis, Dick Mackey, Tahani McCloskey, Lew Moore, Maureen Morell, John Mulligan, David Nieto, Henry Olea, James Peck, Chris & Karen Quintenz, Bob Runkle, Patty Silver, Ken Staub, Jim Tadin, Janet Thayer, Vera Tognato-Goltzer, Greg Vargo, Debbie Waller, John Winters and Christi Youngkin.
