 The Mission of MOST

The Men of Saint Thomas is an organization (ministry) whose prime mission is to build camaraderie among the membership by focusing on the needs of others. The members are dedicated to assisting other parish groups in a variety of ways, such as, but not limited to, fund raisers and social events. The group will assist in identifying parishioners “in need” and whenever possible, provide a helping hand. The ultimate objective is to enable each member to develop a stronger spirituality, personally, and in relationship within the parish and  Church community.
