When I come into the office, it is not unusual to find a small gift, an article someone thought I'd like, books to read, etc. It's a beautiful thing to be thought of with kindness.
This week brought a darling anti-littering calendar featuring drawings by children from all around Boone county (our RE theme this year is centered on the message of Laudato sí 😊), two vases of lovely red roses to grace the office, a beautiful article reflecting on the season of Christmas, and this lovely packet of angel prayers with a charming yarn angel!
I love my job and my parish ❤️ #religiouseducation#childrensministry#catechesis#youthministry#catholic#Parishstaffperks#ilovemyjob#parishschool#angels#kindness#appreciation

It’s been seven years since the closing of the parish school, located behind the historic landmark of the Saint Thomas Aquinas Church. Neighborhoods in South Buffalo are beginning to see a new dawn, as developers and city planners concentrate around these areas for rehabilitation and construction. As stated by Jason Frizlen from The Frizlen Group, “because of the addition of new and reconstructed properties and a renewed optimism, homes in South Buffalo are going up in value, which in retrospect benefits the community as a whole.” Read the full article at buffalorising.com
St. Thomas Episcopal Church and School enjoyed our Welcome Back/Parish School Sunday this past weekend. There was a beautiful service, which included our chapel choir, parish choir, hand bells, student readers, acolytes, and a blessing of our backpacks. It was followed by a lovely reception in Rantz Hall. #community#parishschool
Our Little Mister can be a little impatient, so waiting for his custom Budsies was "taking soooo long"! Finally yesterday was his "happiest day" when the plus Super Mister Hero Smash arrived.
This is a smash of Batman, Black Panther, Optimus Prime, Superman, Knight and dragon sword. You know, my own human Hero Smasher and now our personalized plush. Today was also the last day of Apraxia camp The Carruth Center, so his snack was a cheesy Hero Smash just like the Budsies. Can't wait to hear about his day.
