In Episcopal churches, lay people take active roles in our worship services. At St Thomas’, these are:
Lay Readers read the Bible lessons for the day, and, in services without music, they lead the congregation in reciting the psalms and canticles
Chalice Bearers assist the priests and deacons (ordained clergy) at Holy Communion by administering the Cup.
Worship Leaders lead services of Morning and Evening Prayer.
If you are interested in serving in one of our lay worship ministries, please contact the Rector at the church office, (713) 666-3111.
