Faith Formation for 9th-12th grades 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.

THE PASTOR’S CORNER...
Important Dates to Remember:
COFFEE with the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy
Dear St. Thomas More Community, 1). FLOCKNOTES : Text CarolinaCatholic to
84576. You will then be connected to STM and receive notifica-
tions that are texted out to the parish as necessary.
2). On the evening of February 23rd, young adults from around the Diocese will come together in their separate regions to attend Adoration, confessions, and listen to a reflection on John 16:19-27 (The story of Lazarus and the Rich Man). The Columbia Region will come together at Our Lady of the Hills where the Redemptorist priests will be hosting the Holy Hour. Father Peter and Father John are available to hear confessions. Father John will also be offering the reflection. The following morning, Saturday, February 24th, I am asking the young adults to move back into into their parish groups and organize/ participate in a service project within their parish. Parish coordinators will be in charge of communicating with the pastor and the parish in organizing this portion of the event. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. Peace in Christ, Lexie Segrest, Associate Director of Young Adult Ministry Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry
