Alpha “Bits”

Do you have questions about life or faith? Do you ever wonder, “Is there more to life than this?” If so, you are not alone! People of all ages and faith traditions, even those with no traditions, have come to Alpha to discover the answer to this and many other questions.

Some have been introduced to Jesus for the first time during Alpha, and others who already know him may come to meet him in a new way or with new understanding. The talk and group discussion each week will help participants find their own answers to questions like “Who is Jesus?” “How can we have faith?” and more. To register for Alpha now or to learn more, go to our website www.stm-parish.com/try-alpha.

Stay tuned for more about Alpha!

Thursday Adoration at St. Thomas More

When days are busy and we are overwhelmed, let
us make time to get away and just be with Jesus to
receive His rest, His comfort and His Grace. Visit
Him on Thursdays when we have Adoration at
STM to receive His Peace and Blessings!
Adoration starts after the 9 am Mass andcontinues until 5 pm.


Disciples of the Holy Spirit

The Prayer Group gathers for fellowship every Tuesday at 7:00pm, with the meeting beginning at 7:30pm. Join us in praise and worship, scripture,
reflection and teaching as we connect with one another so we are able to go out into the world and spread the love of Christ to his people. Come and be equipped to go out and evangelize the world (or at least your part of it.) B.Y.O.B. (bible)


The F.O.O.D. Project
