We are now in the thick of the cold season (although some may argue you wouldn't know it with the balmy temperatures we've enjoyed)! But things certainly do not come to a halt once the daylight decreases and the snow starts to fall. We've compiled a sampling of what you can to this winter in St. Thomas, with everything from sports to art to wedding planning.

In 1978, it was the Pastor of St. Anne’s Parish, Father Patrick Costello’s dream to invite celebrities from the world of sport to our community. Today, the St. Thomas Sports Spectacular carries on this dream and continues to support local Special Olympics and Community Living Elgin as over $400,000 has been raised for a variety of projects.
Over the years, the annual guest lists have reflected an impressive array of professional and amateur athletes, past and present, who have left capacity audiences totally entertained. www.stthomassportsspectacular.com
