St. Thomas is a thriving parish with an active and diverse congregation and strong, committed lay leadership. After completing a 2-year period with a Priest-in-Charge that served as a bridge after a difficult departure of the previous rector under Title IV, they have done some good work and have recently begun an interim period. They have an experienced Interim and an excellent search consultant who knows the community well, and are ready to receive names.
They do have more and significant work to do together as they rediscover where they go as community.
St. Thomas is widely involved in numerous community activities, such as Overeaters Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, and Scouting. St. Thomas is a parish that comes together not only for those who worship, but also those outside the walls.
The Rev. Canon Charles Robinson
