Faith Reflections Wednesday 5:30-6:30 P.M.

1). Just a few words about the Lenten Season and Holy Week, our attendance at all the Holy Week services were at an all time high, 1000 Lenten reading books were picked up and hopefully read by our parishioners, and 900 crucifixes were taken home. 2). We raised in one weekend $2211.85 for Relay for Life. 3).St.Thomas More has contributed, so far, $7374 to the 2018 Bishops Annual Appeal, that is 41.58% of our total goal $17,736. This is with 33.33% parishioner participation.

Wednesday 6;30 meet at the center.

4). I have provided below a look at the past three years of income and expenses here at St. Thomas More. Keep in mind that the large income amount during the 2015/2016 fiscal year included the Capital Campaign funds collected to purchase our rectory.

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.
