From time to time, people enquire about some of the "former" priests and deacons at St. Thomas More Parish. So that you can keep tabs on them, I thought this page would be appropriate. You may click on the mail button () for the email address. Additionally, if the parish has a web page, it will be linked to the parish name.

But, before reporting to where our former priests have been reassigned, let us first take the time to remember all of those who have been called to the Lord, asking God to give them peace to reward them for their service at the table of the Lord:

  • Rev. Richard Ameling [07-29-08]
  • Deacon David Brown [09-24-97]
  • Rev. Clarence E. Danforth [06-25-03]
  • Rev. Joseph Herod [05-22-88]
  • Rev. Joseph Mosko [12-13-87]
  • Rev. Dominic A. Mrena [07-02-94]
  • Deacon Joseph Sobek [07-06-04]
  • Rev. William E. Vogt [11-27-04]
  • Msgr. Robert B. Weis, founding pastor [03-04-92]
