back to school 1416913

 

God of knowledge & widsom, bless all students young & old,

as they begin a new school year. Help them discover & develop

the gifts you have given. As they grow in knowledge, help them

to also grow in kindness & compassion, learning respect

for themselves & others.

 

We ask your blessing on parents & all those who care for students.

Strengthen them to surround our students with

encouragement, support, & love.

 

Remind us that wherever we go, you are always with us.

Fill us with the joy of learning so that we may be better

equipped to be your servants.

 

Amen.

 
Celebration for Sr. Betty & Sr. Mary Rose PDF Print E-mail

We will be having a festive reception after all Masses the weekend of September 12 - 13 to recognize and celebrate all that Sr. Mary Rose and Sr. Betty have done for our parish over the years. If you have not had a moment to grab one of these cards after Masses please take a moment to write any thoughts, prayers, memories, etc to Sr. Mary Rose & Sr. Betty. 

Feel free to click on the link below to view a printable version of the memory card. Return your card to the parish office with any pictures you may have by August 1. We will be compiling these and giving them to the Sisters as a reminder of all the hearts and families they helped and blessed throughout their 38 years at St. Thomas More!

World Meeting of Families PDF Print E-mail

world meeting of families philadelphia 2015 logo

The World Meeting of Families will take place in Philadelphia from September 22-25, 2015!  Adding to the excitement, Pope Francis is expected to be present on September 26 & 27 for the Festival of Families and a Papal Mass. 

This will be the first time that this event will happen in the United States.  Established in 1994 by Pope St. John Paul II, the WMOF takes place every 3 years in cities all around the world.  Its goals are (1) to strengthen family bonds and (2) to give witness to the fundamental role of the family in society.  Click on the image above to go directly to the World Meeting of the Families website and learn more.

We as a parish will be doing several things to celebrate and prepare for this event.  One such thing is that we will be praying for each parish family by name during the weekday 7:00 a.m. Masses from July 1, 2015 through June, 2016. 

In order to help prepare for the World Meeting of Families, a catechism on family life entitled, Love is Our Mission:  The Family
Fully Alive
, has been written.  Each week leading up to the event, our parish will include in the bulletin a brief reflection on one chapter from this book.  For a deeper reflection on each of the 10 chapters, click here
