Who We Are

  • We are members of St. Thomas More Parish who are heeding the call to serve one another in Christ’s name. 

  • We recognize that there are families in our parish that may have ongoing or urgent issues that make it difficult or impossible to meet all needs of the family, the children in particular. 

  • We recognize it our responsibility as Catholic Christians to help meet the needs of those families

  • and their children. We follow the example of Msgr. Murphy who is a role model for those who wish to live their faith to the fullest and serve one another.

 

How it works?

Needs come to our attention in a number of ways. 

  • Children who attend St. Thomas More School who are in need will be brought to the attention of a school counselor.

  • Children who are students in the Religious Education Program who are in need will be brought to the attention of the Director of Religious Education.

 

The Angel’s Closet

  • We use a room in the school to hold supplies & clothing typically needed by students for success.

  • Students access these resources with a school counselor or Director of Religious Education.

  • Volunteers, including the STM School Service Club members visit the closet regularly to

  • organize donations & remove unneeded items.

  • Items we collect

    • Gently used STM school uniforms, gym uniforms and attire

    • School appropriate clothing

    • Gently used school shoes and sneakers

    • Gently used sports equipment/clothing

    • First Holy Communion dresses, suits, and shoes

  • Make a donation of items we are currently collecting. Items can be deposited into the collection bin at the main entrance of the school.
