The St. Thomas More Society of Phoenix Arizona welcomes you!

We are an organization of Catholic attorneys and legal professionals that seek to inspire and strengthen the faith of the Maricopa County legal community by following the example of St. Thomas More, our patron saint and martyr.  The organization is led by a Board that offers events and continuing legal education seminars, including the annual Red Mass, to support the Catholic legal community.  

We invite you to learn more about our association of Catholic legal professionals who seek to integrate their faith in their legal practice.

Prayer to St. Thomas More

Pray that, for the glory of God and in the pursuit of His justice, I may be trustworthy with confidences, able in argument, loyal to clients, honest with all, courteous to adversaries, ever attentive to conscience.  

Sit with me at my desk and listen with me to my clients’ tales.  Read with me in my library and stand always beside me so that today I shall not, to win a point, lose my soul.​

Pray that my family may find in me what yours found in you: friendship and courage, cheerfulness and charity, diligence in duties, counsel in adversity, patience in pain – their good servant, and God’s first.​

Amen.
