A progressive church in Washington, D.C.
We are a community that unconditionally welcomes people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, immigration statuses, economic realities, and political persuasions. God loves everyone, with no exceptions. Our life together—and in service to others—centers on God’s radical hospitality that invites us to be fed at God’s table in the Holy Eucharist so that we in turn can help feed a world hungry for grace, justice, and reconciliation.
Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde directed that all parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Washington suspend worship services and normal parish operations for two weeks as the Washington region grapples with the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. This decision means we may not gather here for worship, fellowship, or meetings until then. This is a way our diocese is aiming to love our neighbor, trying to stop the spread of coronavirus and protect vulnerable populations.
Founded in 1891, St. Thomas’ Parish has recently completed a modern church building that is well-suited to ministry in the city. Our history includes: having been the “church of presidents”; anti-war protests; arson; the HIV/AIDS epidemic; the struggle for human rights; and an ongoing determination to rebuild. Our story is about a onetime “high-society” church that learned to welcome everyone, like Jesus did, including those those on the margins of society.
