Bishop Sam Hulsey will ordain Christopher Thomas to the priesthood at 7 pm. Thursday, May 17, 2018, on behalf of Bishop Scott Mayer, at St. Elisabeth and Christ the King Episcopal Church.
Thomas served as deacon at St. Alban’s, worshiping in Theatre Arlington before moving to St. Elisabeth and Christ the King. He is a cradle Episcopalian, having been raised at Trinity Episcopal Church in Morgan City, in the Diocese of Louisiana. He spent many years on the staff and as a member of Christ Church Cathedral, Houston. It was during his time in New York City, at Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, that he began the process of following the call to ordained ministry. He moved to North Texas in 2009, and completed and received the Master of Divinity from Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University in 2011.
In 2011, Thomas joined St. Luke’s in the Meadow Episcopal Church and began the discernment process with the Diocese of Fort Worth. He is looking forward to ordination to the priesthood and is passionate about ministry in areas of urban development and social justice.
