Father Don ZimmermanWelcome to St. Thomas More Parish where our mission is "to profess the Gospel of Jesus Christ by living our faith through prayer, scripture, evangelism, service, and celebration of the sacraments". We invite you to join the more than 900 families who worship with us and share of their time, talents, and treasure to make our parish welcoming, hospitable, and full of vitality. All of the Pastoral Team are committed to serving you. Pastoral care is an essential element of who we are in Christ Jesus. We are grateful for the privilege to serve along side our numerous volunteers. Perhaps you have suggestions about how we can make our parish a more warm and dynamic place to worship and fellowship with other followers of Christ.

Current Reflection

Question of the Week
Adult Question
:  How have you made the commandments in Matthew 22:34-40 part of your daily life?
Children's Question:  How have you shown love to your family, friends, and Jesus?

All Creation Is Singing God's Praise
God wills the interdependence of creatures.  The sun and the moon, the cedar and the little flower, the eagle and the sparrow; the spectacle of their countless diversities and inequalities tells us that no creature is self-sufficient.  Creatures exist only in dependence on each other, to complete each other, in the service of each other.  (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no 340)
How I Can Help...

  • This year marks the centenary of the extinction of the passenger pigeon, a bird once so numerous that flocks would darken the sky for days on end.  Habitat destruction and relentless hunting doomed the bird.  The biggest single threat to birds remains the loss of the environments they need to flourish and reproduce.  Fresh water acts as a magnet for birds.  If you have birdbaths, change the water regularly to thwart mosquitoes in the summer and ice in the winter.  Water to drink and bathe seems even more attractive than bird seed.

How does care for creation relate to our identity as Christians?  Watch this space for ideas and inspiration in the coming weeks.
