Bible Speaks - By Pastor Harris

SOLMENITY OF THE MOST BLESSED TRINITY

Reflections from our Holy Father Pope Francis

The light of Easter and Pentecost renew every year in us the joy and wonder of faith that recognizes that God is not something vague, or abstract, but has a name: 'God is love.'

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


Food Drive Continues

The feast of Corpus Christi
 

Is one time when our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament is exposed not just to faithful Catholics but to all the world. This is a time when Catholics can show their love for Christ in the Real Presence by honoring Him in a very public way. It is also a wonderful way in which we can show our love for our neighbors by bringing Our Lord and Savior closer to them. So many conversions are a result of Eucharistic Adoration experienced from inside the Church. How many more there would be if we could reach those who only drive by the church in worldly pursuits?

 
 

June 7th after 12:30pm mass.

Faith Formation
     
 

"I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye upon you. " Psalm 32:8

Would you like to share your love of Jesus Christ and His Church? Our children are the future and we need to prepare them as the next leaders of the Catholic Church to know their faith. Children have the best questions. Sometimes humorous "Did Adam & Eve have belly buttons?" Sometimes thought-provoking "Why doesn't God stop people from hurting each other?"

Please consider instructing our St. Thomas More children during the upcoming 2015-2016 school year.
Please contact the Faith Formation Office at 561-737-3521 or ffassociate@stmbb.org for more information.
We would love to have you join us! God bless you!

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 full-day 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.
