Saint Thomas More Priory is a house of priests belonging to the Society of St. Pius X. They live a common life in a religious house called the priory. They use the priory as a base from which they exercise their apostolate.

Saint Thomas More Priory services St. Thomas More Church, a large community of Catholics in the Orlando area, who come for the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments as well as St. Thomas More Academy.

Saint Thomas More Priory has been in Sanford, Florida since the early 1990s.

The priory services many Mass centers throughout Florida: Miami, Davie, Fort Myers, Lake Worth, Brooksville, Miramar Beach, and Jacksonville.
