The St. Thomas Capital Campaign
At Vestry, the Capital Campaign was approved to raise funds for major
repairs and renovation projects. Phase 1 of the campaign will focus on
“Safety and Accessibility”, and the essential requirement to provide a
facility that is safe and accessible to everyone. Having safe and secure
entrances and a functioning elevator is critical to fulfilling our ministry
today and in the future. We are called to act now, to preserve our ability
to welcome and serve the community.
The first project to be completed in Phase 1 is the replacement of the
crumbling Main Street stairs, at a cost of $9000. We are asking for your
support to “Buy-a-Step” for $100 each to help meet this goal, but any
donation is appreciated. All donations will go towards this project until it
is fully funded, and regular progress updates will be provided.
How-to Donate Donations may be
accepted during regular offertory, or at the church office. Please indicate
'buy a step' or 'capital campaign' on the envelope for transfers, or if you
are considering Planned Gifts, please contact the church office for more

Here is a 'good news' story from
our St Thomas Facebook page.
In February 2016, we received a request for help from a 16 year old boy in
Syria. He, his 2 siblings and his mother requested help to leave Syria and
come to Canada. I called our KSRSG leader, Rev. Grant Dillenbeck and asked
what I should tell this boy. Grant's response was to tell him that in order
to be considered a refugee, he had to get out of Syria and when he was out,
to contact the United Nations High Commission on Refugees. In June of this
year, I sent him another message asking if he has been able to get his
family out of Syria. He responded the same day telling me he and his family
came to Peterborough in October, 2017. He just finished his last year of
high school and will be starting at McMaster this September.
