We invite you and your family to join in the vision of a parish committed to Biblical faith and morality. St. Thomas is a parish which is committed to the Great Commission "teach all nations and baptize in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
It was begun in 1980 by a group of Episcopalians concerned about the moral and theological drift of the mother church. The church began meeting in a home in the West University area. In 1985 the parish acquired its present land and a chapel originally built as the First Methodist Church in Pearland, Texas in 1947.
In 1989 the parish paid off its original indebtedness. 1995 brought the completion of a new parish hall/class room building and the calling of the present rector.
In 1996 the parish was rededicated after a major renovation which restored the church building to its original beauty.
In 1997 St. Thomas affiliated with the Reformed Episcopal Church (founded 1873). In 1999 the parish purchased the 4.5 acres to the north of the original property.
It was during this period that the church was refurbished, and the remaining 8 stained glass windows were installed. In 2002 the parking lot was expanded and in 2005, the James Pittman Organ was dedicated.
In 2015, under the leadership of Sr. Warden Steven K. Howell, the parish raised nearly $400,000 in pledges towards a new classroom building and additional parking. The parish also sold 3 acres of land to make construction possible. Construction has begun on this project on November 1, 2016.
We are seeking committed traditional Christians to join us and to work and pray for the success of our vision.
