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 cooperation 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 the visitation of families, and 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 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.

Our guiding principles are these three pillars; Faith, Fellowship, and Service.

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.
