Committee Close-Up PDF Print

Learn how our parish functions by taking a closer look at this month's featured committee!


The BeFriender Ministry provides trained and commissioned men and women as companions on life's difficult journeys.  The BeFriender gives support through a confidential listening presence that embodies the caring presence of God and our faith community.  If you or someone you know could benefit from a compassionate friend, please contact the parish office.  Check back next week to learn more or visit the Liturgy pages.


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. If so, please share them with any member of the Pastoral Team. We look forward to serving Christ with you!

-Father Don Zimmerman, Pastor

Current Reflection

Question of the Week
Adult Question
:  What is your response to the promise that God is like a shepherd gathering his sheep?
Children's Question:  How do you experience God taking care of you, even in times of trouble?

All Creation Is Singing God's Praise
One of these [forms of Catholic stewards' human cooperation with God's work of creation] in serving all that preserves is a profound reverence for the great gift of life, their own lives, and the lives of others, along with readiness to spend themselves and enhance life.  (Stewardship: A Disciple's Response, U.S. Catholic Bishops' Pastoral Letter on Stewardship)
How I Can Help...

  • In your daily living, how will you show more consideration for the integrity of creation and preserve it for future generations?  A report from the World Wide Fund for Nature and the Zoological Society of London concludes that today's average global rate of consumption would need 1.5 planet earths to sustain it.  But 4 planet earths would be required to sustain the United States' levels of consumption or 2.5 planet earths to match the United Kingdom's levels.

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