  1. The Arts and Environmental committee is in need of used/unwanted CD's to be repurposed for the Lenten decorations behind the altar.  There will be a labeled bin in the gathering space to place them throughout Lent.  Afterwards, the CD's will be recycled at the CD Recycling Center of America.
  2. After Masses today, St. Tom's Youth Ministry will be selling Catholic jewelry and rosaries to help raise money for our high school and middle school youth ministry programs.  Proceeds will help from sponsoring youth to go on retreats to numerous other youth group events.
  3. There is an opportunity for you and your family to decorate the Church for Lent for an hour weekly after 11:00AM Sunday Masses during Lent.
  4. Join us on a journey of faith as we learn to know Jesus better through Bishop Robert Barron's DVD study series: "Priest, Prophet, King."
