Comment: Went to the 4pm mass on Saturday. Overall it was a good experience albeit a little less traditional than I am used to. The church itself is gorgeous! Great option for those visiting on vacation and do not mind a more contemporary vibe.

Comment: St. Thomas had a really beautiful Palm Sunday service. The congregation participated in the reading of the actual words of the crucifiction (per the Bible). It was a very moving service, which made me reflect. Even today, some are so quick to judge others. If we all loved and forgave each other, we would all be happier!

Comment: Really enjoy walking this campus. It has great scenery with tranquil courtyards and pond views (places to sit, too).Lots of people walking dogs here (tho they really need to keep them on-leash as bobcats and coyotes live here!).

Comment: We are visiting Siesta Key and went to the Saturday vigil. The church was very full which was a delight. Acoustics werent the best as I missed a bit of Frs. homily, but the music was very uplifting! Sorry folks - I love good music! Could have done without the joke preceding mass. Glad to see so many attending Mass.

Comment: We are so blessed to have Thomas More church in our neighborhood. We have travelled in many places and have never met a more professional group of priests and the music that Alex Dillon provides is just heavenly. The church is extra blessed to have him and the wonderful soloists. We are so happy to be part of this church and so look forward to be able to go back. Please hurry up.

Comment: I have been a member of the Parish since 1990... Father Henry revived this parish after he was the pastor... he got the debt paid...and established the COMMUNITY. The music director, Alex Dilan is so talented and original, enhanced by Michelles and Debbies voices leading us to our connection to our savior. [Voices United in song is super powerful]. St. Thomas More Sarasota is a welcoming Catholic community. All are welcome in this place... find your spirit home here.

Comment: If I could, I would rate this warm, welcoming, joyous Catholic community a 10!We were enveloped in fellowship; we were made to feel that they had been waiting for us to arrive. As new full time residents of the Bradenton/Sarasota/Venice area, we had been attending Mass at many of the areas churches. Each was Catholic, focused on the presence of Jesus on the altar during Mass; the priests developing in the congregation a deeper understanding of the Scripture through their homilies; each taught the same doctrine, worshiped God and honored the saints as real humans who lived their lives on earth in extraordinary ways. Most of the parishes were more traditional; that option is very available on Floridas Suncoast.St. Thomass members raise their voices in musical prayer; it is an amazingly lively and joyful participation. As I looked at the faces around me, I saw a church FILLED with reverent Catholics who were worshiping God in a way that was comforting to them. God gave the parishs music ministers a great talent; they are not hiding them under a basket but using them to light the way to God.We drive 28 minutes one way to attend Mass in this wonderful parish. Another parish is less than 5 minutes away. I praise, and thank God, that options are available to draw all of His people into true communion with Him.
