Vestry

Bible citation

The Vestry is the elected group that, along with the Rector, looks after the parish’s worldly affairs. It creates and monitors the parish’s budget, discusses and decides on major church programs, and plans for the church’s short- and long-term future. Vestry members usually do not represent specific constituencies, but are expected to act for the good of all members of the parish.

Mission, Ministry, Management

We welcome the child of God that we are created to be, to seek and serve God and Jesus Christ in our days, in our ways, through all that we do, with all that we have, all of the time! May this information about Mission Ministry and Management at St. Thomas’s Parish encourage you to join us and our parish family, the University of Delaware, our community, and God’s creation.

We organize our ministries as “Mission, Ministry, Management” as way to organize ourselves to love and serve the Lord. More detail on these ministries is available on How will you serve?
