St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Eugene, Oregon

Welcome to our Church!

Michael Bruce Curry is the 27th and current presiding bishop and primate of The Episcopal Church which is part of the Anglican communion along with the Church of England. Elected in 2015, he is the first African American to serve in that capacity.

His recent address at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lifted us up when he called out,  “When love is the way,” he said, “then no child would go to bed hungry in this world ever again.” He quoted the Book of Amos: With love, “we will let justice roll down like a mighty stream, and righteousness like an ever-flowing brook.”

With love, he said, “poverty will become history” and “the earth will become a sanctuary.” At the end, he concluded, “may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.”
