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.

Current Reflection

Question of the Week
Adult Question
:  What qualities of God does the image of the Good Shepherd suggest?
Children's Question:  How do you experience God guiding and protecting you?

All Creation Is Singing God's Praise
Caring for God's creation is part of our Catholic social teaching specifically outlined by the U.S. Bishops: "Care for the earth is not just an Earth Day slogan, it is a requirement of our faith.  We are called to protect people and the planet, living our faith in relationship with all of God's creation."  Every individual and family is called to care for God's creation: when we care for our planet, we show respect and love to God, the creator of all.
How I Can Help...

  • As a family, make a list of small but important ways you can care for God's creation such as remembering to turn off the lights when you leave a room or making recycling one of your regular chores.

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