Below is a list of our regular fund raisers for the church and the school. For information on a current/special fund raiser you can read this week's bulletin.
St. Thomas the Apostle School Endowment Fund
If you have not already done so, please donate to the St. Thomas the Apostle School Endowment Fund. Do not feel like you have to donate hundreds of dollars. Ten $10 donations make $100 and so it is through our numbers that we will build up this fund. Please read the letter to the parish by Stephen Yanoshak, the president of the St. Thomas the Apostle School Council, for an overview of the fund. Thank you and God bless you a hundredfold.

St. Thomas School has been earning cash by participating in the Funding Factory Recycling Program. We collect empty laser and inkjet cartridges from the students and parish, and send the empty cartridges to Funding Factory to exchange for cash. Drop off locations for the cartridges are at the back of the church and at the school. Businesses interested in donating their empty cartridges can contact the school in order to obtain a small collection box to be placed at their place of business.
