Small Groups

Small GroupsGiven the circumstances of our founding, St. Thomas More is (by Catholic standards) a very small Parish, so it is not difficult to to meet new people and make new friends even at parish-wide gatherings such as our weekly coffee hour, movie nights, potluck meals, annual celebrations, or parish picnic.

Nevertheless, one of the best ways to get to know others on an even more intimate level is to participate in one of our many small groups. These can be either fellowship and study groups designed for the enrichment of the participants, or they can be service groups designed for participants to enrich others; either way, both involve time spent alongside a handful of others with a common purpose, allowing space and time for friendships to spark and grow.


Fellowship & Study Groups

Holy League LogoThe Holy League is a parish-based network of men united in devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, combatting the forces of evil in today’s culture by calling men back to the state of grace and transforming the culture through prayer. The men meet on the first and third Monday evenings of the month at 7 p.m. for a Holy Hour of Exposition, Adoration, Confession, and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament... followed by a beer!




Altus LogoAltus for Women is a regional ministry of faithful Catholic women discipling other women in the Catholic faith, regardless of parish membership, level of Christian commitment, or denominational affiliation. Though a ministry of St. Thomas More Parish, this group meets at the Scranton Diocesan Pastoral Center on Wednesday evenings -- usually, a 6- to 10 week program in the fall and again in the spring.




Ladies' Lunch Group meets for lunch, fellowship, and a book study once per month on a weekday (as announced) in the Parish Hall.

Adult Education Classes are described here, and often include potluck suppers where you can get to know others before class.

Our Youth Group is decribed here.
