The AECST: Celebrating 225 Years of Legacy, Faith and Hope
Welcome to the historic African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas, founded in 1792 as the first black Episcopal Church in the USA. Our parish boldly proclaims the reconciling Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are an active, mission-minded and growing church family. Whoever you are and wherever you may find yourself on your spiritual journey of faith, you are always welcome at St. Thomas’ Church, where we are joyfully and enthusiastically committed to Jesus’ message of love, hope, prayer and faith.
