St. Thomas More Parish is a Roman Catholic Church located on Dorchester Road, Niagara Falls in the Diocese of St. Catherine. It is a vibrant and active community of faith that has been serving the spiritual needs of the surrounding area for many years.
The history of St. Thomas More Parish can be traced back several decades, to a time when the Catholic population in the area was growing and there was a need for a new church to be established. The first Mass was celebrated in the new church in the late 1950s, and since then the parish has continued to grow and thrive.
St. Thomas More Parish is known for its strong sense of community and its commitment to service. The parish is active in many different areas, including youth ministry, social justice, and outreach to the less fortunate.
In recent years, the parish has undergone significant renovations and upgrades, including the construction of an additional building and the addition of new facilities and programs. This has helped to strengthen the community and to enhance the spiritual experience of the parishioners.
Whether you are a lifelong member of the parish or just visiting for the first time, St. Thomas More Parish is a welcoming and supportive community that is dedicated to helping people grow in their faith. With a strong commitment to service and a vibrant and active community, St. Thomas More Parish is a great place to call home.
I joined the Parish on the 1st of September 2022 as an associate Pastor. Moving to a new Country as an associate Pastor can be both exciting and daunting.
On one hand, it gives me the opportunity to bring new ideas and energy to a community, and to make a positive impact on people’s lives. On the other hand, you are starting from scratch in a new environment, with new people and new challenges.
Being new to this Country and to this Parish in particular I give importance to getting to know the people in the parish. I attend church events and social gatherings and make effort to meet as many people as possible. In addition, asking questions and listening to their stories, and trying to understand what they are looking for from me helps me to serve the church community better.
In conclusion, I would say that being an associate pastor in a new parish is both a challenging and rewarding experience.
