ROSARY FOR PEACE For about 15 months now, Rosary for peace in our hearts, our homes, country and the whole world have been said every Tuesday here at St. Thomas. In the summer, we gather to pray at the grotto of our Lady by the parking lot. When it is cold or raining, we pray in the church. We do have fun too…    some days with cookies, coffee or pizza! Attendance is very good. Just come and experience love in action.
