CELEBRATION GOAL WEEKEND UPDATE 

Vineyards and being fruitful encompassed the theme of last week’s readings. As we look forward to expanding God’s vineyard here at St. Thomas More, and build a new, permanent church for the glory of God, we are reminded to produce the kind of fruit that will lead us to His kingdom.

We started on the lawn, where our priests prayed for the people of St. Thomas More Parish and the space where we will build God’s new church. We invited all parishioners to celebrate our campaign successes thus far, said thank you to all who have supported the effort, and asked everyone to complete their gift if they have not yet done so. Cupcakes and coffee on the plaza rounded out a wonderful time of fellowship and celebration.

This celebration inspired 158 new gift/pledges totaling $253,000! Thank you to everyone who joined in supporting the expansion of our vineyard. We understand some of you needed more time to consider your gift. If you took your envelope home, please pray about your support, then complete the card and return it to the office.
Thank you to the many event leaders and volunteers who gave of themselves – as with everything, it takes many hands. We are grateful for all you do.

YOUTH COIN BANK OFFERING

Did you see the coin box arch on the plaza last weekend? Almost 200 youth learned more about stewardship by offering not only their coins in support of God’s new church (just over $4,000!), they also shared what they like about STM. Please see the separate insert in today’s bulletin to see their names and read some of their words
