Welcome to St. Thomas!
The Episcopal Church of St. Thomas the Apostle is located in Dallas, Texas, and is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. We currently have about 250 regular communicants. In 2000, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the parish’s founding. We enjoy a diverse community of young and old, families and single people, and different ethnic backgrounds. We seek to build our common life in Christ through shared worship, service, learning and teaching, and social activities.
Our patron, Thomas the Apostle, is also known as Thomas the Doubter because he would not believe the other apostles’ accounts of their encounters with the risen Christ until he had seen for himself. Christ did not rebuke Thomas for his questions and skepticism, but provided Thomas with the confirmation he needed and charged him to carry the gospel to others. In his spirit, the parish tries to engage questions, doubts and skepticism faithfully.
We hope you will find this site helpful and informative. If you have further questions or wish to contact the church, either use our Contact links throughout the site, or feel free to browse the site at your leisure.

These things did Thomas hold for real:
the warmth of blood, the chill of steel,
the grain of wood, the heft of stone,
the last frail twitch of blood and bone.
His brittle certainties denied
that one could live when one had died,
until his fingers read like Braille
the markings of the spear and nail.
May we, O God, by grace believe
and, in believing, still receive
the Christ who held His raw palms out
and beckoned Thomas from his doubt.
