St. Thomas RCIA

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which people wishing to either become Catholics or return to the Catholic Church are instructed in the tenets of the faith. The initial stage is an inquiry period, a time to ask questions and resolve issues. Advanced instruction takes place after the inquiry period and culminates in the acceptance into the church and the reception of the sacraments during the Easter Vigil of 2015. Anyone wishing to begin the process contact Deacon Leonard Long or Father Al at 609-266-2123.

Mea Culpa
St. Thomas was forced to cancel its beach bonfire due to predicted 30 mph high winds. The fire department would not permit the church to light the fire this year. Apologies to all those who were disappointed.

The Gold and Silver Mine- Before you invest online The Gold and Silver Mine- Before you invest online Wouldn’t it be nice if the states and federal government were actually helpful and supportive of individuals who wished to invest in gold? Well, a recent article published in The Numismatic News, a weekly newspaper dedicated to coins and coin collecting, detailed the services provided by the United Kingdom.

The British Royal Mint, whose responsibility it is to produce the gold bullion coins for the British government (sovereigns, Britannia’s which are equivocal to our gold eagles, and other gold coins) recently announced the creation of a website where individuals can buy and sell gold on line and, if they wish, have the mint store their purchases for them.

BRIGANTINE-The Federal Emergency Management Agency deadline for filing proof of loss documentation for Standard Flood Insurance Policy claims is Wednesday, Oct. 29. The date reflects a number of extensions that ultimately give policyholders up to 24 months from the date of loss, which may vary case by case depending upon when Sandy made landfall, but for the south Jersey area is almost invariably Oct. 29, as the storm passed over the area two years ago on that date.

For details see the FEMA bulletin on their National Flood Insurance Policy information site, http://bsa.nfipstat.fema.gov/wyobull/2014/w-14017.pdf.
