Vision 2020 Update

Stained glass window fundraising progress:  The Parish Council voted this week to approve moving forward with the final phase of the stained glass window restoration.  This final phase will fully restore the large north and south arched triple bay windows in the middle of the church which are very much in need of repair.  For the project we have raised and collected a total of $114,540.  We have an additional $5,000 in future pledges leaving us with about $11,000 remaining to raise.  Associated Crafts, the restoration company will take 8 months to complete the work so we will have several more months to raise the remaining funds.  For one of the fundraisers this fall we are planning to have a raffle like we did last year but this year will be for substantial cash prizes instead of the 4 wheeler. We are thankful for all the donations and support on this next major initiative and by May of 2021 we will have restored all (22) stained glass windows in the Church.  We will also continue to accept donations with the options below.    We need your help to close the gap. 

· Cash or checks can be sent to St. Thomas Catholic Church, PO Box 3, Underhill Center, VT 05490.  Please note Vision 2020 stained glass window project.

· You can donate online when you click on the On-Line Giving button.

· You can call the Parish Office and make a pledge at 802-899-4632 and speak to Teri Gingras.





Message from Rev. Christopher Micale

The first phase of the reopening of Catholic churches in Vermont to celebrate daily and Sunday Mass began June 1.

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains lifted until further notice, especially if you are part of a vulnerable population and/or have an underlying health condition.

Please approach the celebration of Mass with charity and love for our clergy and faith community by following the protocols:

  • Stay home if you are sick or not feeling well.
  • Wear a mask in Mass.
  • Sanitize your hands upon entry. Due to shortages of sanitizer, please bring your own if possible.
  • Sit in designated pews and respect social distance between others of 6 feet or more unless you are one family unit.
  • Refrain from congregating in tight areas or entering cordoned off areas.
  • Follow the protocols to receive Holy Communion as directed at Mass.
  • Follow your church protocols regarding registration if necessary due to the 25% capacity limit.

For more details about church protocols visit: vermontcatholic.org/covid-19

While these protocols are intrusive, they are necessary as they allow us to celebrate the Sacraments in person while doing our part to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

 When you return to Mass, you will see things have changed a bit.

  • Hymnal and other reading material has been cleared from the pews. Click here for a resource to follow along at Mass.
  • Bulletins will be available after Mass.
  • Please wear a mask and use hand sanitizer upon entry and exit from the church.  
  • At this time there will be no coffee hour so please do not congregate in large groups in or outside of the church. 
  • The sacristy, balcony, and "cry room" will be closed until further notice.
  • Please wear your mask during your approach to communion.  When it is your turn, please pull your mask down below your chin, receive in your hand, consume the host, and then replace mask before returning to your pew.
