Our dear St. Thomas family:
With donations from our family, St. Thomas family, Alpha Delta Kappa sisters, Gulfstream Elementary family, and friends near and far, with Loren’s Memorial Fund we will not only provide nourishment for the students in transition (term for homeless students) at Southridge, but we’ve also been able to provide joy and lasting memories for seniors in transition.
In April, we were able to purchase Prom tickets for seniors in transition, and in May, we were able to establish the first annual Loren Henry Roy Scholarship for a deserving student in transition. We were invited to the annual Southridge Awards Ceremony to present the scholarship.
Our family will continue to fund this scholarship annually. Thank you for your continued Christian love and support for us.
Bev, Phil, Philip, and Lois
St. Thomas "Walks for Water"
We smashed our original giving goal. The South Miami-Dade Walk for Water has raised $1,886 for the work of Water Mission. Thank you for your generous support!
If you haven’t donated yet, please consider making a gift on the watermission.org website on the South Miami Dade tab or you can write a check to St. Thomas and put “Water Mission” on the memo line and help us top the $2K mark.
Thanks to the 27 people who participated and walked, and all who contributed time and energy along the way to success. People’s lives will be changed because of your efforts.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.. Matthew 5:16

OUTREACH COMMITTEE NEWS
We are collecting gently used men’s jeans and shoes for the homeless.
On June 23, the fourth Sunday of the month, we will again make about 120 sandwiches after worship. We need volunteers to take the food to Old Cutler Presbyterian Church at 3 and then to the homeless downtown at 4.
We are collecting new or gently used kitchen items for the residents of Chapman Partnership who are moving into apartments.
We are collecting nonperishable food and toiletries for about 150 homeless children at Miami Southridge Senior High School. The need is even greater in the summer.
Outreach Coordinator Ginni Egan reports 48 seniors in transition graduated, with 46 planning to go to college and two to the military!
Thank you for your canned good donations for the Synod Assembly collection! They will go to the hungry in Central Florida.
THANK YOU to everyone for your kind donations!
