I hope that this shrine will enhance your love of Christ, his Holy Mother, and his Church.

in Heaven 150 and 1500 years of the Burmese community at
St. Thomas More Church. Above we will embrace each other for the great work
that we did for our future generations and continue to
build their life for the best.
I pray with you for justice, peace and truth in your
