Dear St. Thomas More Community, 1). After thoughtful consideration and conversations with many of you , we have decided to make a change in our daily Mass schedule. Daily Mass will now begin at 12:00 Noon. On Tuesday we will begin Adoration at 4:00 PM followed by confessions from 4:30 until 5:30 PM . Daily Mass will begin at 6:00 PM. 2). Thank you all for your generous donations toward our Washington DC Youth Group Trip. Although we lost a day we were able to attend the March for Life Rally Friday. 3). Our project in the chapel is beginning to take shape! You can now see the progress and we hope you are patient while we continue with our soon to be beautiful addition.
4). The STM Youth Group is founded on the principle, “faith in action”. Our members have served at Mass both on the altar and in the choir, tended the gardens, cleaned the center and the chapel, decorated…and undecorated for Christmas, fed the hungry, sent shoes to India, and roofed a house for Homeworks. Their aim is to spread the faith as they continue to grow their own. Please consider joining this dynamic group-the future depends on you.
In Christ, Fr. Marcin
