On the Feast of Pentecost the first two baptisms took place in our newly-consecrated building
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.
Our principal worship service is the Holy Eucharist (also known as Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper), held at 10:30 am on Sundays. The first part of the service is centered on the proclamation of God’s Word, and the second portion is the Holy Communion. We welcome to the communion table all those who are seeking God and who want to know Jesus more.
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.
