What an exciting time for our church! As we seek God’s guidance through prayerful discernment in the calling of our next rector, we continue to thrive in our congregational life together. As grateful stewards of all that God has given us, without a doubt we are energized in body, mind, and spirit on our journey to love and be loved within our parish community and in the world.
If you are a priest who feels called or if you know of a priest who feels called to be the next rector of St. Thomas, please contact the Rev. Canon Massey Gentry, firstname.lastname@example.org. Canon Massey is the OTM (Office for Transition Ministry) Officer for the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast. All candidates for consideration must go through the OTM Officer.
Collect for the Feast Day of St. Thomas
Everliving God, who strengthened your apostle Thomas with firm and certain faith in your Son's resurrection: Grant us so perfectly and without doubt to believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God, that our faith may never be found wanting in your sight; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
