Welcome to St. Thomas More Parish

Our mission is to become the real presence of Christ through prayer, education, worship and service

Welcome to St. Thomas More Parish

St. Thomas More Parish is a warm and diverse community serving the people of Lynnwood, WA. In the company of our parish family, we invite you to live out the Real Presence of Christ through prayer, education, worship and service!

Let us join our Holy Father, Pope Francis, in one of his favorite prayers, as written by our parish patron:

Prayer for Good Humor

Grant me, O Lord, good digestion, and also something to digest

Grant me a healthy body, and the necessary good humor to maintain it. 

Grant me a simple soul that knows to treasure all that is good 

and that doesn’t frighten easily at the sight of evil, 

but rather finds the means to put things back in their place. 

Give me a soul that knows not boredom, grumblings, sighs and laments

nor excess of stress, because of that obstructing thing called “I.” 

Grant me, O Lord, a sense of good humor

Allow me the grace to be able to take a joke, to discover in life a bit of joy

and to be able to share it with others. 

-St. Thomas More









As we begin with our
Stewardship of Time, Talent, and Treasure campaign,
We pray that the members of our community

may hear the voice of God
calling us to deeper discipleship,
And may we open our hearts

and generously share our gifts with others,
We pray to the Lord.


STM Parish Long Range Plan (5 Year Goal)

  • Our planning effort started in late January 2016 with input provided by numerous Parish groups, commissions, committees, and staff.
  • Parishioner input meeting was held on May 16 that produced 921 comments and ideas.
  • The core planning team has identified 6 areas of focus:  Campus & Facilities, Communication, Parish Finance, Parishioner Engagement, Spiritual Enrichment, and Youth & Young Adults.
  • Common themes to be addressed in each of the six areas are Community and Culture, the Parish School, Stewardship, and Technology.

Teams are being formed to develop the five year plan in each of the six areas of focus. Success depends upon your involvement in this effort. Signup for one of the teams and share your time and talent. The commitment is for 3 two-hour meetings on September 28th, October 19th, and November 16th.

You can sign up in the narthex after Mass or you can call (425-743-2929) at the parish office or email John Miketinas at jnm2@comcast,net.

Neighborhood Meetings have begun........

Our first STMP Neighborhood meeting occurred recently. It was an occasion for joyful sharing and excitement about our future here at St. Thomas More. It provided a warm, hospitable setting for Father Stephen Okumu and parishioners to become acquainted and share their vision for a vibrant future. A special thanks to those who have offered their homes for these gatherings.  We also thank our Pastor, Father Okumu, for the privilege of joining with him as we explore our commitment to St. Thomas More.  If you'd like to host a meeting, please check in with Violeta at violetaj@stmp.org or call the parish office at 425-743-2929 ext 113 and schedule your date.  You'll be glad you did. Here's a snapshot of his visit.
