Confessions for Festival For Forgiveness

Did you note on our last e-news that Saint Thomas More will participate in the Festival For Forgiveness with the Archdiocese of Chicago? 

Yes!  We will hear confessions at Saint Thomas More on Friday, February 27 from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

If you are a late night person, you may want to try Holy Name Cathedral or Saint Christina who are having confessions from noon Friday until noon Saturday – 24 hours!

I pray everyday to Saint Pio, the great confessor, that all of you will make a really good confession this Lent!

Saint Patrick’s Dinner

The annual dinner to honor St. Patrick will be on Saturday, March 7 at 6:00 pm. The traditional corned beef and roast beef dinner comes with all the sides. Famous Irish musicians will play the traditional songs of Ireland and Irish dancers will perform. We will also have the usual Irish Soda Bread Contest and a huge raffle. A Disc Jockey will play dancing music for us after dinner, so that everyone can dance. The cost per ticket is only $15.00 before March 7 and $20.00 at the door. Bring the whole family for an economical fun night out. Children 12 and under are free!

The Tridentine Mass is offered at Saint Thomas More every Sunday at 12:00 PM. This Mass is the same Mass offered prior to 1962; the Mass of many family members and many saints who were nourished by it.  It is a Mass in Latin to add mystery, the beauty of the language and music adds more.
