Open. Our decision-making criteria are three: scripture, tradition, and reason. Thinking is encouraged in this congregation. We welcome you to come as you are, and to bring along your gifts and your needs, your faith and your doubt.
Diverse. We are people of various lifestyles, sexual orientations, ethnicities, abilities, disabilities, and ages. Our pastor is a woman, who carefully directs St. Thomas. We are part of the Episcopal Church USA, but many of us are of other persuasions and denominations.
Worshipful. Worship is at the heart of our common life. About 85 of us gather at two Sunday services: 8:00 a.m. is a said service, while 10:00 a.m. has hymns and other music, as well as Sunday School and a nursery. We sing morning prayer every Monday-Thursday at 8:15 a.m. and celebrate a bilingual (Spanish-English) Eucharist the first Sunday of each month at 5 p.m.
Communitarian. We are a green church working toward reduction of global warming and have foreign service activities in Nigeria, Kenya, and the Philippines. Once each quarter we prepare breakfast for the people at St. Martin's Hospitality Center, a day center for the homeless which we founded 20 years ago.
Enduring. St. Thomas has been in its current location since 1963, originally to serve the University of New Mexico, but now with a very
widespread congregation. Our buildings have been completely refurbished, and a new organ is being built.
