Deacon Thomas Mulvihill
Deacon Tom was ordained in 2009 and serves at Mary Queen of Peace Parish in Webster Groves, where he and his wife, Molly, have been Parishioners for nearly 35 years. They have five children: Oliver (who died at an early age from cancer), Margaret, Brecht, Patrick, and Lucy. He covets time with them and his grandchildren and enjoys spending time at their family farm in DeSoto, Missouri. After 30+ years in the Marketing industry, including running his own firm for over two decades, he worked in Development at St. Patrick Center, then as the Director of Admission and a Theology teacher at Saint Louis Priory School. When this opportunity at The Reclamation Center presented itself, he was thrilled to participate because he had been “collecting” Liturgical items for a number of years, buying everything from chalices and monstrances, to thuribles and linens from thrift stores and second-hand shops, merely to get them “off the market,” and prevent them from what the Church would call “profane use.” He is happy to say that these various items have now been donated to The Reclamation Center, and many are now thankfully in use at Parishes across the Archdiocese.
