The senators

The senators consist of men from the congregation of St. Thomas's who make a point of meeting together once a month for breakfast at the local neighbourhood resturaunt, Headquarters. 

The senators also meet every Monday and Tuesday mornings at 10am for coffee at Headquarters! 

Want to meet some of the men at a senators Breakfast and enjoy fellowship, in depth conversations and laughs are had by all?  Contact the office so that they can arrange for one of the organizers to be in touch with you about upcoming breakfast dates!

Ladies Lunch

The ladies' luncheons are held on the third Wednesday of the month (October - May)  from 11:30 a.m. until about 1:00 p.m.  All women in the congregation of any age (and their friends) are most welcome to attend.  

We meet at Headquarters Restauraunt (#101, 100 Granada Blvd) in the back party room.  Here we have the opporutnity to visit and mingle without having to compete with the noise of the restauraunt.  All ladies are asked to look after the purchase of their own meals.

Any ladies who would like to attend for the first time are asked to contact Vicki Clark through the church office.  Once in touch with Vicki you will be called at the beginning of the week before each luncheon to find out whether or not they will be attending.   Should you need a ride, transportation to and from the restauraunt can be arranged.  Please contact the office.

We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better!


Cribbage is a a group of men from St Thomas who meet on Monday nights at 7:00pm at the church to play crib from Thanksgiving until Mother's Day.

We invite anyone who is interested and loves spending time around the Crib board to join us and enjoy light competition and great fellowship.

Ladies are welcome and invited to join us on the first Monday of every month

You don't need to be a member of St Thomas to participate, just a love of cribbage and company. 

For more information and to get in touch with organizer's please contact the church office.

Centering Prayer
Recovering the mystical heart of the Christian Wisdom Tradition

We may think of prayer as thoughts or feelings expressed in words.  But this is only expression.  

In the Christian tradition contemplative prayer is considered to be the pure gift of God.  It is the opening of mind and heart - our whole being -to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. Through grace we open our awareness to God whom we know by faith is within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than choosing, closer than consciousness itself.

Centering Prayer is a method designed to facilitate the development of contemplative prayer by preparing our faculties to receive this gift. It presents ancient Christian wisdom teachings in an updated form. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer; rather it casts a new light and depth of meaning on them. It is at the same time a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. This method of prayer is a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with him.

At St Thomas we meet Tuesdays from  7:00 – 8:00pm, Sept 1 through June 30.  After 20 minutes of Centering Prayer, we enjoy a short reading or video, followed by contemplative discussion.
