Tomorrow, Saturday June 22, we celebrate the Feast Day of St. Thomas More, our patronal feast. Please join us tomorrow morning at 9am for Holy Mass where we will invoke his intercession this year on his feast day.
"O God, who in martyrdom have brought true faith to its highest expression, graciously grant that, strengthened through the intercession of Saints John Fisher and Thomas More, we may confirm by the witness of our life the faith we profess with our lips. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever."
(from the Collect Prayer for the Optional Memorial, June 22)
