Organizations of the congregation, STA-02

Some of these groups are autonomous organizations of the congregation, functioning in the congregation at the pleasure of the Vestry. Others, such as the Sunday school, report to Vestry and are financed directly by them. The organizations in this series have two main roles in common: Christian service, at both the wider world and practical parish levels, and Christian fellowship. Some of the organizations, such as the Altar Guild, have served specific functions in parish life and work: others, such as the A.C.W., have traditionally had a broader focus.
Series consists of the records of the following organizations:
Altar Guild STA 02-01;
A.C.W STA 02-02;
Men's Service Club STA-02-03;
Sunday school STA-02-07;
Servers' Guild STA-02-05;
An administrative history is included at the sub series level: these are available in the finding aid.

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.
