Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox

Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox

Co-Founders, Pilgrim Center of Hope

Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox had a re-awakening of their Catholic faith in the 1980s. While on a trip through the Holy Land, they were directed by a local priest to take a silent walk along the Sea of Galilee. There, Jesus unmistakably spoke to them each.

In September 1986, Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox left their respective careers in hotel management and the travel industry to work full-time for St. Matthew’s Catholic Church. For the first seven years, their main ministry was door-to-door home visitation; in the first two years, they visited over 10,000 families. They also helped establish other outreach ministries at St. Matthew. With the help of friends and benefactors, they founded Pilgrim Center of Hope in June of 1993.

Tom was ordained to the permanent Diaconate in August 1988. Mary Jane is a member of the ENDOW (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) Advisory Board and the National Council of Catholic Women. They became Oblates of the Congregation of St. John in 1991.

Tom and Mary Jane’s mission has included travel to parishes to give presentations on their ministry experiences, Parish Missions, and on Door-to-Door Home Visitation Outreach. Their Ministry of Pilgrimages has led them around the world; their speciality (and dearest to their hearts) is the Holy Land, having traveled there more than 40 times since 1986.

Their ministry work has been featured in five nation-wide Catholic periodicals and on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) show Living His Life Abundantly in 1995 on the video I Am the Bread of Life, produced by Stepstone Productions, Inc. In February 2008, they received the Catholic Television of San Antonio (CTSA) Leadership Award. In March 2011, they received Guadalupe Radio Network‘s ’Pescadores de Hombres‘ (Fishers of Men) Award. They were invested into the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre in October of 2011. In October 2012, they received the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation’s "Living Stones Award" on behalf of The Pilgrim Center of Hope.
