St. Thomas More Church is the spiritual sanctuary of St. John’s University. The church opened its doors to the University community on September 27, 2004.
The church stands at the heart of the Queens campus. The walls of the church are adorned with vibrant hand-crafted mosaics and stained-glass windows imported from Italy that depict scenes of Vincentian history including the founding of St. John’s University.
Also located inside the church is the 9/11 shrine which serves as a space for reflection and prayer for members of the University who have lost family and friends during the events of 9/11.
