(2) IF YOU ARE USING AN AUTOMATIC PLEDGE PAYMENT METHOD (strongly encouraged!), SET UP THE PAYMENT. There are two ways to set up either a one-time or recurring payment:
(a) Use your bank's online bill payment system to set up a payment from your checking or savings account, or
(b) Click here to go to the Church's payment processing system.
You may use the Church's payment processing system to pay with a debit or credit card (which costs the Church a processing fee), or with a transfer from your checking or savings account (which is no cost to the Church). (IMPORTANT NOTE: The processing system does NOT alert the church that you have set up a recurring payment, so we rely on you to do so, by filling out a pledge card.)

St. Thomas's Church values and encourages a diversity of people who are reflective of the kingdom of God. We strive to respect the dignity of every human being by welcoming, validating, and supporting all persons, whatever their race, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, health status, physical ability, marital status, or stage of spiritual journeying.
St. Thomas's is a Gun Free Zone. This includes all buildings and grounds associated with the Church and the Day School.
St. Thomas’s Episcopal Church is a lively Christian community of faith located on Whitney Avenue in New Haven at the border with Hamden. We are diverse in age, race, and sexual orientation. All are drawn to St. Thomas’s by its distinctive atmosphere of heartfelt fellowship, intellectual inquiry, spiritual curiosity, and beautiful worship.
Sunday at St. Thomas's centers on the celebration of Holy Eucharist, with ritual that is both ancient in tradition and contemporary in outlook. Music enhances the atmosphere of holiness. Sermons thoughtfully apply the lessons of Holy Scripture to current events and concerns. Family‑friendly seating areas provide comfortable space for even the most active children. The people gather around the altar for the Eucharistic Prayer, and children are encouraged to draw near. All are invited to receive Holy Communion. As we experience God through worship and fellowship with one another, we are strengthened to follow the way of Jesus in the world.
The St. Thomas’s community includes St. Thomas’s Day School, a co-educational independent day school serving children from kindergarten through 6th grade. Its Mission Statement is this: St. Thomas’s Day School is a diverse community of children, teachers, parents, and parishioners working together to foster learning in the context of faith and personal commitment. As a mission of Saint Thomas’s Episcopal Church, the Day School seeks to educate children broadly by cultivating intelligence while engaging heart and spirit. The School seeks to motivate children of diverse races, creeds, and backgrounds to become independent thinkers who appreciate, understand, and serve others.
If you are looking for a spiritual home, give St. Thomas’s a try. You won’t be disappointed.
The Rev. Keri Aubert
