20th Commemoration of 9/11

Please join us for a Mass of memorial and remembrance on Saturday, September 11, beginning at 8:30am in St Thomas More.

Our hearts and prayers reach out to all those affected by the atrocity of the day.

If you lost a loved one due to this tragedy, we invite you to submit a framed photo (no larger than 5x7) by September 1st to the parish office.

Father Romane St. Vil will be at the parish for the annual missionary cooperative appeal and collection for the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers the weekend of August 28-August 29. Father St. Vil has served as a missionary in Cambodia & Tanzania, and will invite us to take part in the vital work of bringing Christ and His Gospel to all people. Maryknoll is the popular name for the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America, which was founded in 1911 to follow Christ's command to preach the Gospel to all the nations. They serve principally among the poor in places where the Church is unknown or in great need. While at the parish, Fr. St. Vil will be happy to talk with any parishioners who are interested in doing overseas mission work
