Administrative history

St Thomas's Parish was officially formed on 24 August 1910. Before that it was a mission established by Old St. George. In 1905 a group of Anglicans interested in holding services met in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Powles. It was decided to rent a room in H.E. Penny's store on Logan Avenue. Reverend Canon T.J. Roy of St George took the service. On 22 November 1906, St Thomas was officially designated a mission. A church was also built that year at the present church's site, 1567 William Avenue. A new church was built in 1923 and opened in November of that year. The old church was converted into a parish hall. The new church was consecrated in 1942 on the 21st of December. In 1932, St Thomas received St Peter's pipe organ after its closure. In 1961 the parish hall was extended and parish offices were constructed as well.
