This is the Second Sunday of Lent with the account of the Transfiguration of the Lord as recorded in the Gospel of Mark.  Each of the Synoptic Gospels have this event of Jesus with three of his disciples.  This is one of my most favorite pericope in the holy scriptures!  Peter sees this event as so special

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!

Current Reflection

Question of the Week
Adult Question
:  When can anger be a good thing and when not?
Children's Question:  How can you honor your parents?

All Creation Is Singing God's Praise
The world is created as a means of God's self-revelation so that, like a mirror or footprint, it might lead us to love and praise the Creator.  We are created to read the book of creation so that we may know the Author of Life.  This book of creation is an expression of who God is and is meant to lead humans to what it signifies, namely, the eternal Trinity of dynamic, self-diffusive love.  (Sister Ilia Delio, OSF)
How I Can Help...

  • Join and support conservation efforts such as those advocated by the World Wildlife Fund.  Through conservation, the World Wildlife Fund has successfully brought many animals back from the verge of extinction.

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