Toast the Sale of the West Campus at Epiphany Brunch:
Sunday, January 4th!

Join your fellow parishioners for a community-wide brunch following the 10:30 am Mass on Sunday, Jan. 4th, the Feast of Epiphany. We'll come together to eat, drink and be merry as we celebrate the sale of the West Campus and other highlights from the past year, while looking forward to our time together in 2015 and beyond. New parishioners in particular are encouraged to attend. Free will donations will be accepted, and mimosas will be available for purchase. Like last year, there will also be a White Elephant Gift Exchange. Those wishing to participate should bring a wrapped gift worth $10 or less.

More Stories

We have a brand new issue of More Stories! Please pick one up from the Community Corner or the bulletin racks. Our latest issue features stories of faith from Megan and Mark Busch, Jon Spayde, Joe Walters and a poem by Jerry Sedgewick. The mission of More Stories is to create space in our hearts for one another through our stories. Download your copy here.

Beloved. Blessed. Called.

125th Anniversary Project Update

We have received donations totaling more than $75,600 to date from 151 Saint Thomas More households. There is still time for you to make a donation to this project and help us reach our goal of raising $125,000 for much needed capital repair projects. Pick up a 125th Anniversary Project envelope in the Community Corner and place it in the collection basket with your gift. Or, online, click on the “online donations” link on the Parish website and enter your Anniversary gift information. It is that easy! We will conclude this drive by December 31, 2014, so why not do it today?

Reflection

Stewardship is the response of the disciple to God’s unconditional love for us. The more deeply one grows in love for God, the more one grows in heart to see stewardship as a way of life, a way of love, imitating God’s love for us. Stewards see everything good as gifts received from God and they respond in gratitude with the gift of self. Stewardship is a conversion journey of receiving God’s love and returning love to God. A conversion requires prayer, reflection and time to allow God to show us who we are, and the person of love that we can become. Throughout the conversion experience, the disciple yearns to change and grow into the person God created them to be - a steward uniquely God’s own, but united in one Body through Jesus Christ. Stewardship transforms lives because of its love, and it is in this transformation process and conversion journey towards love that we give new life to the Church. “If you wish to come after me, you must deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me. For if you wish to save your life you will lose it, but if you lose your life for my sake you will save it.” (Luke 9: 23-24) (Adapted from the Parish Stewardship Guide, Diocese of Wichita)

Campaign Update

As of December 15, 170 Saint Thomas More households have returned their stewardship pledge form. Thank you! 170 down, 650 to go. In this the last week of Advent, as we await the coming of Emmanuel, God with us, we invite all to remember that every good gift with which we have been blessed is from God. And to invite you to respond in love by returning to God a portion of what you have been given. Why not do it now while you are thinking about it? Stewardship pledge forms are in the Community Corner in church or on the website.

If you are interested in learning more about the STM stewardship committee or in participating in future stewardship campaigns, please contact Mike Sarafolean at sarafolean@comcast.net. If you need a stewardship form, please contact the parish office or download a stewardship pledge form here or our annual report here.
