STA-01-01 Minutes of Vestry, 1963- ;
STA-01-02, Minutes of annual parish meetings, 1963- ,
STA-01-03 Correspondence, 1963- ; Mr. Gordon Thomas conducted much of the early parish correspondence. Mr. Thomas had been active in church affairs at the Cathedral Parish of St. John the Baptist before the creation of St. Augustine=s Parish. As Rector=s Warden of St. Augustine=s Parish from 1963 to 1973 and, to a lesser extent, as secretary to Vestry from 1976 to 1981, he was involved in most parish business during his tenure of office. Mr. Thomas= formal administrative style and his access to professional secretarial service ensured the maintenance of even the smallest details of the church=s life and work.
During Mr. Thomas= years in office the parish correspondence was maintained in a filing cabinet in his home: this was subsequently turned over to the parish. After Mr. Thomas= tenure, Vestry correspondence is less extensive.
