Welcome to St. Thomas More Parish

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

 

Christ is risen! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Brothers and Sisters in the risen Lord:

May the peace and the love of God be with you now and forever.

According to the teaching of the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church: The resurrection of Jesus is the crowning truth of our faith in Christ, a faith believed and lived as a central truth by the first Christian communities, handed on as fundamental by Tradition; established by documents of the New Testament and preached as an essential part of the Paschal Mystery along with the cross.

Let us rejoice and be glad for the Son of the true and living God has been raised from the dead and He is living among us. May the Risen Christ grant you peace and joy at this Easter and always, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.

Fr. Stephen Okumu

 

 

 

 

How will I live as a joyful Christian this Easter season?

 

 

Eastertime Prayer


Risen Lord,
I greet you with joy
this Easter season,
and I thank you for
the gift of new life.
Bless my family and friends
and anyone who is
lost or lonely
or feeling far away from you.
Grant that I might
celebrate springtime
in my heart each day
as I rejoice
in the Good News

of your Resurrection. 
Alleluia! Amen.

 

 

 

 

What is my view of the world and the place of Jesus Christ in it?

Easter heralds spring; and with spring, we welcome the return of the light. During March in North America, we gain more daylight than any other month of the year. During Lent, we open ourselves to seeing the Light of Christ in new ways through the practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. This Eastertide, pray for your own flashes of insight, your own moments of seeing the light. Ask for the enlightenment necessary to view your relationship to the world in the fresh light of Easter, remembering that though there was a dark tomb, there was, in turn, an empty tomb. The Resurrection calls us to rejoice in our Christian discipleship.
