You don't have to worry And don't you be afraid Joy comes in the morning Troubles they don't last always For there's a friend in Jesus Who will wipe your tears away And if your heart is broken Just lift your hands and say

I know that I can make it I know that I can stand No matter
what may come my way My life is in Your hands.

Diocese of Palm Beach Second Collection

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord:

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) has come to the aid of communities nationwide for more than 40 years in an effort to eradicate poverty. During World Youth Day, July 25, 2013, Pope Francis told us to "never tire of working for a more just world, marked by greater solidarity." As the official domestic anti-poverty agency of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, CCHD puts Pope Francis' words into action by funding housing, education, and the development of job opportunities. You can help by giving to our diocesan special collection which will take place November 8th and 9th.

Projects supported by CCHD move beyond providing for basic needs. They work to build healthy, sustainable futures for communities. Ten years ago, Boston's Haley House began offering bakery training at the request of a few regular guests at the soup kitchen. Experiencing a tremendous demand, Haley House created a six-month course that includes customer relations and basic business principles. Haley House currently has 70 trainees who have completed the program and are now employed in the Boston area.

Haley House also runs cooking classes for at-risk teens and a Transitional Employment Program that provides holistic, individual support to men and women re-entering the community after incarceration. Haley House creates a strong local economy by building human relationships; it carries on Christ's mission "to bring glad tidings to the poor . . . liberty to captives . . . sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free" (Lk 4:18). This Collection is the primary source of funding for CCHD's anti-poverty grants and education programs. Collection funds offer new hope each year to those living in poverty throughout the United States. And remember, 25 percent of the Collection's proceeds stays here in our diocese to fight poverty in our communities and defend the dignity of our neighbors. Help us defend human dignity and show Christ's charity to those in need. For more information about the Collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and the groups it funds, please visit www.povertyusa.org. With every prayerful wish, I am

Sincerely yours in Christ,


Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito
Bishop of Palm Beach

Funeral Arrangements

Often our Catholic Parishioners wish to plan ahead for their future. When the time comes to meet our Savior, we must consider the family that we leave behind. At Saint Thomas More we understand the difficulty of the selection of liturgy and music for a loved one's service.

To give you and your loved ones piece of mind, St. Thomas More Clergy and our dedicated staff will be happy to arrange your music and liturgy selection.


We Need Your Help! With:
