Welcome from the Pastor
Welcome to St. Thomas More Catholic Parish located in Northwest Austin. We are a dynamic faith community of over 3650 families celebrating life in Christ. A people gathering together among the hills and oaks of Central Texas in Northwest Austin.
Praised be the Lord who in his mighty genius has willed that we belong to the St. Thomas More Parish community at this time in history. Nothing in God’s mighty plan happens by accident. He has a reason and purpose for our being here now.
Each of us is meant to contribute to the building and strengthening of God’s presence in our midst by our time, talent and treasure. I once again echo this sentiment of our former pastors by inviting each one of you, no exceptions, to be the best version of yourself as a steward of God’s blessings.
We can be the best stewards guided by the spirit of J.U.R.:
- First, let’s give back to God some of our time, talent and treasure in a spirit of Joy. God has given us much in the first place. We should joyfully in gratitude give back. "God loves a cheerful giver." (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).
- Secondly, in our giving to God, and in everything we do, we are United in Jesus Christ who is the center and focus of our faith community. When we lose this focus, there is danger of personal egos and agendas getting in the way! Then our community is in trouble.
- Finally, our personal differences are a blessing, but they can likewise be an obstacle to building a healthy, faith community, so we must be Respectful of each other.
With this J.U.R. concept to guide us, the sky is the limit for what we can accomplish for the Glory of God here at St. Thomas More Parish. Please look out for bulletin and website invitations to get involved in the many ministries of the parish. You may also contact any ministry leader listed on this website anytime to get involved. Remember that GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!
Blessings upon all of you,
Fr. Isidore Ndagizimana
