There is something for every student here at Thomas More.

The following types of programs are available:

  • Students enjoy free coffee while listening to an inspiring life story by a University faculty or staff member. Students of all beliefs attend and are able to share and engage in our community where you find common grounds.

Attend a candle-lit service of Eucharistic Adoration accompanied by student-led music to encounter Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

Students can serve as an extraordinary minister of holy communion, lector, server, or sing or play in our Sunday mass choir.

Take the opportunity to grow closer to God, hang out with friends, and escape from the stress of everyday life. Watch for flyers and signups around campus.

This group plans events that welcome students from other countries and cultural backgrounds so they can feel at home. Be on the lookout for flyers!

  • This group puts on worship nights with live Christian music played by students. Come and sing along to praise the Lord!

Pro-Life group focused on raising awareness about the sanctity and dignity of human life through prayer, volunteering, and social activism.

This group exists to bring students closer through social events and to provide opportunities that allow students to explore and go deeper on their spiritual journey.

Spread love in solidarity to those in need by participating in different service projects with organizations in our local community. See the calendar for service events.
