Bible Speaks - By Pastor Harris

The Nation will mark its 239th birthday on the forthcoming July 4th. That was the day on which, in 1826, both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died. They both died on the same day, 50 years exactly from the date on which Thomas Jefferson along with John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston wrote that Declaration of Independence and the Congress approved it.

That these two champions of the American Revolution should enter eternity on the same day is no coincidence, only Our Lord working His will in ways fathomless to man.

Diocese of Palm Beach

July 3, 2015

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:
When natural disasters occur around the world, like the recent earthquake in Nepal, the Catholic Church is quick to respond with food, shelter and other humanitarian supplies. Through the efforts of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic Church, we are able to quickly assist those most in need.

Academy For Early Childhood Learning

St. Thomas More Academy campers enjoyed Cooking is a Science week. They identified a variety of scents, and practiced writing the words in their journals.

They continued to practice their fine motor skills by cutting food pictures to make their personal Food Memory Game.


Wish List Sacred Memorials

The following sacred vessels and furnishings are available to honor your loves ones, living or deceased, in a most beautiful way that exalts Christ in our worship, serves the community of the faithful and enshrines their names in the future life of St. Thomas More Parish.

CIBORIUM—25 $400 ea.

The sacred vessel for reserving The Most Blessed Sacrament is called Ciborium.

The interior of sacred vessels must be of precious material most often gold as they hold the Precious Blood and Body of Christ. We have 20 ciboria because God calls many to receive His Son at our Masses.

Unfortunately, our vessels are showing their age from heavy use. The base metal is showing through and many ciboria are bent, have no covers and are unstable on the altar.

ASPERSORIUM & ASPERGILLUM—4 $350 ea.

The sacred vessel for liturgical blessing with Holy Water is the aspersorium (bucket) and aspergillum (sprinkler). We use these vessels for the blessing of people within and outside of Mass, at the Wake and Funeral Mass, for the blessing of animals, cars, houses, religious sacramental and many other occasions. Ours are beyond polishing and repair, and would make a most practical memorial.

If you would like to memorialize a Ciborum or Aspersorium, we would engrave the name of your loved one on the vessel as a lasting testament to life and faith. Please contact Mrs. Kaiser in the St. Thomas More Parish Center to make arrangements.

Rev. Julian P. Harris, Pastor

Saint Thomas More 2015 Back To Church Sunday September 20, 2015
     
 

Back to Church Sunday is a campaign strategically designed to help churches reach out and invite everyone to try church again. This powerful movement encourages church attendance by inspiring and empowering church members to invite their neighbors, friends and loved ones to a special Sunday service designed just for them.

In 2014, over 26,400 churches participated in this growing national movement! In 2015, we are praying for over 30,000 churches to come together and bring spiritual renewal to their communities through Back to Church Sunday!

"But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female. 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one.
Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." Mark 10: 6-9

Sponsor an Altar Server to Rapids Water Park Excursion July 18th

Let's give our St. Thomas More Altar Servers a day of fun and frolic in the water. Theirs is a vital ministry and these young men and women take their responsibilities seriously. I commend their parents for supporting their training and assignments to the many Masses. Under the direction of Mary Beth Kohn and the Masters of Ceremony our young people have matured spiritually and taken their place in the life of our great parish.

Loyalty and dedication to service deserve a reward. If any parishioner would like to join me in sponsoring one or more of our youth for a day at Rapids Water Park, please come by the Parish Office. The fullday admission is $32 per person. We will arrange chaperons, food, drink and a few surprises to make their day as special as they are to us.

Contact the Parish Office at 561-737-3095.
Permission Slips due by July 12, 2015.

Father Julian Harris, Pastor
