Welcome New Parishioners!
On behalf of the whole community of Saint Thomas More Parish, I wish to welcome you with joy and affection. We would like you to know that we are grateful to God for the gift of your life and for your presence among us. We equally thank you for choosing to share the gift of your life and faith with us. You are truly a blessing to our faith community.
Our primary mission here at Saint Thomas More Parish is to build a dynamic and Spirit-filled community of faith, where everyone feels welcomed, loved and supported, and encouraged to live and grow in his/her faith, individually and collectively. Please feel free to join and participate actively in any of the ministries we have in our parish, as a way to grow in your faith journey, as well as support other parishioners in their faith journeys.
Because we believe in Christ’s love and mercy for his people, especially those who are in need, the sick, and sinners, we seek to reflect those qualities in our celebrations, our ministries, and in our interactions with each other. It is our prayer and hope that you will find a home among us and that you will experience the loving mercy of our God, the peace of Christ and the joy of the Holy Spirit as you worship and serve in our parish community. We hope that after worshipping and serving God here in this faith community, we may one day come to join the community of the Saints and Angels to rejoice and praise God eternally in heaven. May God bless you and your loved ones! We love you!!
