What's Up at St TM?

The Wardens met this past week with Father Raymond Lafontaine, who is our interim Parochial Administrator.

We will keep all the parishioners informed of the ongoings at the parish as we move forward.  A meeting between the Administrators and Wardens of both St Thomas More and St Willibrord will be organized in the coming weeks, as well as a Parishioners' Meeting at St Thomas More towards the end of the summer.

The Financial Report for the first third of 2023 was approved at the most recent Wardens' meeting.

Presently, the most pressing information to highlight immediately is that our financial situation remains in dire straits. 

From January 1st 2023 to April 30th 2023, our Regular Offerings* totaled $21 589, while our Expenses totaled $69 913.

*Regular Offerings are comprised of the weekly Sunday collections, monthly maintenance collections, and the Easter collection.

Over the course of the whole summer, the Dominus Vobiscum Catholic Family Foundation has multiple opportunities for families to relax, reconnect, and recharge in a faith-filled environment.
