We are so excited to welcome Roy Thomas, our new Associate Pastor, to our ministry staff. Roy has been a priest for 16 years in the Mar Thoma Church, a very ancient branch of Christ's Church with roots in India. He has recently transitioned into the Episcopal Church, and will begin the next stage of his ministry here at St. Andrew's.
Roy was born in Lubbock and raised in the Metroplex, where he met his wife Rachel (also from the Metroplex) who is a pediatrician in Dallas. They have three children, Isaiah, Faith, and Jeremiah. In addition to his theological studies, Roy has a Masters in Counseling. He is an avid Cowboys fan and lives in Wylie. And of course there's lots more you'll be getting to know about him and his wonderful family in the coming months.
