Welcome to Our Community
St. Thomas’s is a diverse community of young and old, different races, languages, and nationalities, cradle Episcopalians and those new to our tradition. We are conservative and liberal, single and married and partnered, socially active, spiritually reflective, deeply committed to being the Gospel in our community, our diocese, and our world. Our parish strives to be a safe and inclusive community of worship that welcomes everyone as a child of God, and values everyone’s ministry in the Church and the world.
Our mission statement: Nourished at Christ’s table and stepping forward in faith, we are instruments of God’s love, serving our parish family, the University of Delaware, our community, and God’s creation.
At St. Thomas’s, we seek to live this vision and mission in many and varied ways, such as Stewardship and Service, Worship, Educational Programs, Evangelism, and Pastoral Care. Interested in getting involved with the community? Learn how you can serve.
