Welcome to St. Thomas More Parish

Our mission is to become the real presence of Christ through prayer, education, worship and service

Welcome to St. Thomas More Parish

St. Thomas More Parish is a warm and diverse community serving the people of Lynnwood, WA. In the company of our parish family, we invite you to live out the Real Presence of Christ through prayer, education, worship and service!

The month of October and November are the highlighter months for  Stewardship.  This is the time to reflect and discern what God has given to us and what we could do to give back.  The month of October, we asked for you to fill out an inventory of your gifts, in the coming weeks, we are going to ask you to renew your Treasure card.  We ask that each family commit to filling out their Stewardshp Card whether you give financially or prayers.  The success of our parish depends on you! 


Everything we have and everything we are is a gift from God.
Stewardship is the ability to share our gifts of life, time, talent, and treasure
with others–with no strings attached and no conditions.
We share these gifts out of our love for God and gratitude to Him. 

This is what Stewardship is all about. 


“Thus should one regard us:
as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.”
-1 Corinthians 4:1

Five Principles of Stewardship of Time, Talent & Treasure
1. Preparation: We spend time in thought and prayer when deciding what to give.
2. Proportionate: Our giving is proportionate to what God has given us.
3. Sacrificial: We give back to God from our substance, rather than our abundance.
4. Grateful: Our offering is a grateful response to the immense love God has for us.
5. A Gift: What we give is a gift, given without reservation or condition.


As we begin with our
Stewardship of Time, Talent, and Treasure campaign,
We pray that the members of our community
may hear the voice of God
calling us to deeper discipleship,
And may we open our hearts
and generously share our gifts with others,
We pray to the Lord.·

STM Parish Long Range Plan (5 Year Goal)

  • Our planning effort started in late January 2016 with input provided by numerous Parish groups, commissions, committees, and staff.
  • Parishioner input meeting was held on May 16 that produced 921 comments and ideas.
  • The core planning team has identified 6 areas of focus:  Campus & Facilities, Communication, Parish Finance, Parishioner Engagement, Spiritual Enrichment, and Youth & Young Adults.
  • Common themes to be addressed in each of the six areas are Community and Culture, the Parish School, Stewardship, and Technology.

Teams are being formed to develop the five year plan in each of the six areas of focus. Success depends upon your involvement in this effort. Signup for one of the teams and share your time and talent. The commitment is for 3 two-hour meetings on September 28th, October 19th, and November 16th.

You can sign up in the narthex after Mass or you can call (425-743-2929) at the parish office or email John Miketinas at jnm2@comcast,net.

Neighborhood Meetings have begun........

Our first STMP Neighborhood meeting occurred recently. It was an occasion for joyful sharing and excitement about our future here at St. Thomas More. It provided a warm, hospitable setting for Father Stephen Okumu and parishioners to become acquainted and share their vision for a vibrant future. A special thanks to those who have offered their homes for these gatherings.  We also thank our Pastor, Father Okumu, for the privilege of joining with him as we explore our commitment to St. Thomas More.  If you'd like to host a meeting, please check in with Violeta at violetaj@stmp.org or call the parish office at 425-743-2929 ext 113 and schedule your date.  You'll be glad you did. Here's a snapshot of his visit.
