Michael has been appointed this auspicious title and will start his assignment on January 1st, 2023 to help the parishioners of Resurrection Parish with all their pastoral needs.


Although Fr Michael will be missed, we know what a wonderful Administrator he will be in his new parish home. God Bless you Fr Michael. We wish you all the best!


Please join us after the 11:30am Mass on Sunday, December 18th in Petri Hall for light refreshments and to say good-bye to Fr Michael.

Parish Registration For Adults:

This is a friendly reminder, as we approach certificate of eligibility season, that adults who had previously been (or still are) registered with their parents, should register themselves and their households. If adult children still live within the parish boundary and would like to still be active members at the Parish of St. Thomas More, simply register on our website www.moremercy.org. If they have moved away, it is the Church in their current area that they should register in, and from which they would obtain a certificate of eligibility to be a Godparent or Sponsor. Being a registered parishioner is important for receiving the services from the Church, keeping up to date with what's going on, and participating in the life of the parish community and celebration of the Sacraments.
