Search for the XIII Rector

The Search Committee of the Vestry of Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue has been meeting regularly since the summer of 2013 and is making great progress in the search for the new rector. The Reverend Andrew C. Mead announced on June 26, 2013 his decision to retire on July 1, 2014. Fr Mead is only the twelfth rector in the more than 190 years since our parish was founded.
