Pastor's Corner PDF Print

Our theme throughout the Lenten time this year was “On the Journey to Joy.”  At first glance, this may seem to be an odd thought to pursue during a penitential season.  However, the joyous procession into the City of Jerusalem with Jesus astride a donkey conjures all kinds of images,

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.

Current Reflection

Question of the Week
Adult Question
:  What does Jesus' resurrection mean in your life?
Children's Question:  When have you seen someone do a good deed for someone else?

All Creation Is Singing God's Praise
"When the ecological crisis is set within the broader context of the search for peace within society, we can understand better the importance of giving attention to what the earth and its atmosphere are telling us; namely, that there is an order in the universe which must be respected, and that the human person, endowed with the capability of choosing freely, has a grave responsibility to preserve this order for the well-being of future generations.  I wish to repeat that the ecological crisis is a moral issue."  (Pope John Paul II)
How I Can Help...

  • Celebrate new life!  Easter is next week and spring is here!  Plant a tree in your yard.  Planting trees is a simple step anyone can take to reduce CO2.  Trees remove carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen into the atmosphere.

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