Parish Mission Statement
We, the people of the Catholic parish of St Thomas More, Mt Eliza, proclaim our belief in the liberating and life-giving message and mission of Jesus Christ.
As a parish, we strive to live out of the belief that as a community of love, worship, faith and service, everyone, both within and beyond our community, is appreciated.
Together we nurture each other, bringing to life the varied gifts and talents of all.
Creator God, whose Spirit leads our parish of St. Thomas More, be with us this day.
Help us to know your gifts in our lives, to be proud of your calling us to be part of our parish, to know and acknowledge your belief in our potential, and to trust you enough to be open to your will.
In the midst of our blessings may we rejoice and be thankful. When our hopes disintegrate and our dreams are shattered, open our hearts to forgiveness and give us strength and courage to move onwards.
Enable us to act in ways that will be life-giving for all in our parish, our Church and our world so that all people will come to know the life and freedom that Jesus came to give us.
