ALL ADULTS are welcome to join us for any of the Adult Faith Formation Sessions. More information can be found here.
MOMS (Ministry of Mothers Sharing): The Ministry of Mothers Sharing (MoMS) creates an awareness of the inner sacred self, while at the same time teaching us new ways to inspire, encourage and affirm each other. Through the process of personal and spiritual growth, women have the opportunity to clarify their values, claim their own giftedness, and bring new strengths to their family relationships and to the Christian Community.
What is MoMS? MoMS is a small-group, faith-sharing, peer ministry that begins with an eight-week journey that leads a group of women through an experience of self-discovery, mutual support, fellowship, and prayer. it is designed to develop a deeper awareness of your own spirituality as a mother and to greater appreciate your ministry of motherhood.
Is this a parenting class or support group? No. The trained facilitators who guide your ten-week journey are women in the ministry who have already been through the program. They will guide you through the MoMS Journal covering such topics as self-esteem, self-acceptance, stress, worries, anxiety, spirituality, feelings, personal growth, and friendships.

LEGION OF MARY: The object of the Legion of Mary is the glory of God through the holiness of its members developed by prayer and active co-operation in Mary’s and the church’s work. Its priority is the spiritual and social welfare of each individual. The members participate in the life of the parish through visitation of families, the sick, both in their homes and hospitals and through collaboration in every apostolic and missionary undertaking sponsored by the parish. The praesidium holds a weekly meeting where prayer is intermingled with reports and discussion. Every legionary is required to carry out a weekly apostolic work in the spirit of faith and in union with Mary. If you’re interested in joining, please contact Linda Dayawon at 702-956-4272.

SMALL CHURCH COMMUNITIES: In the earliest history of the Christian movement members met in each other’s homes for prayer, mutual support, a communal discernment of the presence and movement of the Holy Spirit in their lives, and the sharing of Eucharist. In recent years, around the globe, this original design is being re-created in both rural and urban settings. St. Thomas More joins with many other Catholic parishes and communities in embracing the concept of Small Church Communities and in offering this opportunity to its parishioners. Small Church Communities provide people the opportunity to connect with other Catholics who strive to integrate their faith with their ordinary daily lives in families, in careers, in citizenship, and in social responsibility. Each SCC determines its own schedule and place for meetings; they use the Sunday Scriptures for the coming week as the focus for their reflection; they pray together in simple ways, and they often undertake some social service as a group. To join a group or for more information, please contact the Parish Office at 702-361-3022.
