THE VISION OF ST. THOMAS EPISCOPAL CHURCH

As historic stewards of the Christian community in Eustis, Florida, we will continue to be a welcoming, inclusive Christian fellowship, worshipping in the traditional Episcopal form, while fostering unification of the whole community in order to work for the common good.


Dear Fellow Parishioners, [St. Thomas’ Search Committee & Vestry, with Bishop Brewer’s blessing, announce that the Rev. Kathryn Jeffrey has accepted the call to be Rector of St. Thomas. She is coming to us from St. Andrews Church, Carbondale, IL, and will begin as our Rector on May 1, 2019. Following is a message to the Parish from Rev. Jeffrey. The Vestry & Search Committee thank each member of the Parish for your patience and assistance during the 23 months of transition. ] Bette Dufour, Senior Warden

“It is delightful that Saint Thomas and I get to announce our coming together on this particular Sunday (February 10, 2019). All 3 of the scriptures appointed for today reference stories of God’s magnificent grace preceding the sending of his servants. Isaiah was blessed with a vision of God’s glory. Saul was dazzled by a bright light, and Peter witnessed a miraculous catch of fish. Meeting the search committee and interviewing at Saint Thomas was a nonstop experience of grace. It felt magical! There were many smiles and much laughter. Many good people were praying for us to discern wisely, and as they turn their prayers to new situations, we must step up with fervent prayer for each other and our future life and work together. I thank the search committee for their splendid hospitality and their confidence in me. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you. May God continue to weave our hearts together as we seek to further His kingdom in Eustis and beyond. May we enjoy much laughter together, as well as share deeply the sadnesses that are part of life. God bless you. In Christ, Pastor Kate+ (Alternately and happily known as Kathryn!)

THE MISSION OF ST. THOMAS EPISCOPAL CHURCH
