This Weekend’s Weather Advisory
Due to the severe weather predicted for this weekend, we will put into effect our Winter Storm Policy. As blizzard conditions are forecast for Saturday, there will be NO Saturday Vigil Mass in any and all of our three churches.
Since 24 inches or more of snow with blizzard conditions are expected in our area and given the uncertainty of our ability to safely and efficiently clear the snow, we will use only one of our church buildings for Sunday Mass. Mass will be celebrated at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday morning at Saint Thomas More Church.
We will post Sunday Mass on The Catholic Community of Somerset & Swansea Facebook page.
FAITH FORMATION REMINDER
If you are planning on participating in our Faith Formation program for the 2021-2022 school year, please return completed registration forms as soon as possible. To help us finalize our calendar, class lists, and book orders, registration forms are due by Sunday, October 3.
We will be accepting new and returning registrations this Sunday, September 26, in the lobby of Saint Thomas More Church following the 9:00 Sunday Mass. You may also drop your forms in the collection basket at any of our Masses or drop it by the parish office mail slot (at the front door of the St. Thomas More Rectory).

We are still in need of catechists (teachers) for our program. Training, resources, and support will be provided! Please consider sharing your time, talent, and faith with our young people! If you can join our team, please contact the parish office.
Because of these protocols and the use of one church, we have temporarily adjusted the weekend Mass schedule. The schedule is as follows:
Mass Times – Saturday Vigil 4:00pm. Sunday 9:00am
Rectory Office Hours Monday – Friday 8:30am to 3:30pm
Our Pastoral Plan
St. Thomas More Parish is a welcoming community of faith. We are called to reveal the love of Jesus through worship, sacraments, faith formation, outreach, service, education and the stewardship of our God given gifts. We strive to create a legacy of faith with a special love for the Eucharist welcoming all to be “people of the Church”.
Here you will find last-minute cancellation notices due to inclement weather or schedule changes. Also, any other parish or Religious Education Class announcements below.
