St. Thomas More's final words were "The King's good servant, but God's First". Adhering to the beliefs and spirit of St. Thomas More, our parish community aims at bringing about Christ experience to all those who participate in the celebrations as ‘People of God’. It is a warm, welcoming and generous community which consists of various nationalities, young and not so young, from all over the world. This community has been an instrument and sign of peace, joy and fellowship for over a quarter of century in Glenfield.

We call it a ‘St. Thomas More Family”.

On behalf of the Parish I extend a warm welcome to this family. It gathers around the table of community, bread of life, love and friendship and a common humanity seven days a week. The New Parishioners Information Pack will help you to get in touch with the life and reality of the Community. You can be an active member of the Community by signing yourself for a ministry or just responding to any one of the voluntary activities in the parish.

I am sure, you will find the parishioners very welcoming and you will soon get to know them. We love to have you with us. YOU ARE WELCOME to share our love, our friendship and our faith.

Fr Benedict
