As the COVID infection percentage rate increases in Monroe County, the Re-opening Committee of the Vestry has decided to once again refrain from public worship, beginning this Sunday, November 7 through at least Sunday, December 5. We will continue to live stream the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service and Noonday Prayer on Mondays and Wednesdays via our YouTube channel, St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, Rochester, NY.

St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church of Rochester, New York stands behind the “Racism is a Public Health Crisis” declaration by the Greater Rochester NY Black Agenda Group. As a community of faith and followers of Jesus Christ we believe that every person is continually made in the image of God beautifully and wonderfully. We are committed to do the hard work of love. We are dedicated to the practice of growing and learning how to know and love our neighbors as we seek to create community. We hold the hope that love does win through forgiveness, kindness, and transformation. We desire to be a people who work for the equity of all. We work to acknowledge our complicity and part in racism, and we are committed to work together to tackle injustice in our life, in our church, in our community and in the world. We are proud to stand with the Greater Rochester Black Agenda Group and its declaration that “Racism is a Public Health Crisis”.
