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.
