St. Thomas More Parish honored its fathers as part of a year-long 50th anniversary celebration.
On Father’s Day, jubilee committee members joined the Knights of Columbus and its Ladies Auxiliary to present fathers with several gifts after all of the weekend Masses — including red carnations, St. Joseph medals, and St. Joseph prayer cards. The Knights of Columbus also provided refreshments.
The parish’s jubilee year, which began in May, will feature a number of activities and events, including a parish picnic in September, a ministry fair and bingo night in October and a founding members commemoration Mass in November.
The anniversary will culminate with a jubilee Mass to be celebrated on May 19, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. by Archbishop Charles Chaput.
The first Mass at St. Thomas More Parish was celebrated on June 5, 1968. All previous and present parishioners are invited to share in the jubilee year festivities.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
