OUR PARISH

WHO WE ARE

St. Thomas More University Parish began as a dream in 1939 to be a Catholic Parish intentionally serving the BGSU community. That dream became a reality 20 years later as a chapel became a church built by students for the students. Today, St. Tom's provides and supports an array of ministries, and continues to look toward the future of serving the BGSU community.

I WANT TO REGISTER 

We are a unique parish made up of both permanent and BGSU community members. If you like what you have seen of our facilities, blown away by the charitable and hospitable atmosphere of our parishioners and staff, or just really feel called to get behind campus ministry efforts, we want to help you with the next step.

FINGERPRINTS ON THE ROOF

A poem by Anthony J. D'Ermes, a student who helped construct the church grounds

We were young students-filled with dreams

Our work seemed overwhelming.

We hammered, poured concrete, laid floor tile, 

And bricks and cement blocks. In the

Dead of winter our hands

And knees seemed frozen.

Our legs and arms stiff from 

Work we had never done.

In summer, sweat rolled off of us.

The altar, the statues,

And paintings created by students.

The baton was passed to new generations of 

Students filled with the same

Dreams for a chapel, to serve

Students even yet unborn.

The cause was just. The memories have endured.

The work goes on,

And the students come.

Now in the twilight of our years, we gaze back,

With unspeakable joy and glorious 

Memories of that simple chapel.

A stead parade of students 

Will be blessed upon entering

It to share in the 

Miracle of the Holy Eucharist.

There is such comfort in knowing that our 

Fingerprints are truly on the roof.

WHO WE ARE

St. Thomas More University Parish as a family of faith loves, serves, and enhances the community of Bowling Green State University through an invitation to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, experienced in the Sacraments of the Catholic Church so that all may grow intellectually, personally, and spiritually.
