Welcome to St. Thomas More Parish

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

"Lead Me Lord, Send Me"
Fr. Stephen Okumu
Pastor

At St. Thomas More,
We give thanks every day to each of you:
for your joy in service and your passion for your ministry,
for your perseverance and trust 
especially at this time of confusion.
for your hope in the Spirit to change lives, and most of all,
for your support  and the work we do together to serve others.
This Thanksgiving,
may your gatherings around your family and friends be a foretaste of the heavenly banquet.

As you prepare your table this Thanksgiving, may you encounter Christ at all your tables.
Happy Blessed Thanksgiving!

GOD SO LOVED HE GAVE

FROM A HEART OF GRATITUDE
WE GIVE OUR
TIME, TALENT & TREASURE

 

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


“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Matt 6:23

 

 GRATITUDE    
How might I develop my discipline of gratitude?  

“The Eucharist is the great sign and agent of this expansive community of charity.”

—Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response (U.S. Catholic bishops’ pastoral letter on stewardship)

As Christian disciples, in this season of gratitude we approach not only the Thanksgiving table, but also the Eucharistic table. At the foot of the altar, we offer our gratitude in the form of our heartfelt worship and prayers, a portion of our money, the whole of ourselves. At Eucharist, we join as a holy people and remember Jesus, as He urged us to do, in the breaking of the bread.

The words “disciple” and “discipline” have the same root. In many ways, thanksgiving is a discipline. We can discipline ourselves to be charitable, moved by love of God and of our neighbor, grateful rather than greedy.

How do you bring charity to the community? What will you offer at the altar this month as a symbol of thanksgiving for your God-given gifts? How might you deepen your discipline of gratitude?
