Greetings in the name of our risen Lord,
Welcome to the website of the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas, AECST. We are very proud to be the first African American Episcopal Church in the United States. St. Thomas is one of the largest predominately African American congregations in the Episcopal Church.

I hope and pray that your journey through this website will be informative, enlightening, and above all, inspirational. After your virtual visit of our many exciting ministries, I invite and encourage you to join us in worship.
The AECST Express Train is headed for many divine destinations. We encourage you to be a part of our spiritual journey.
