STE At a Glance

In 1953, Saint Thomas’ Episcopal Church met for the first time in an old television station. Those attending agreed to pay fifty cents for two folding chairs, one for themselves and one for a visitor. By 1954, the church had obtained mission status and was meeting in an oil services building in nearby Bellaire, Texas. In 1955, Saint Thomas’ Episcopal Church moved to our current location and adopted its outreach mission – educate boys and girls in a day school. From our beginning, Saint Thomas’ Episcopal School (STE) has been the church’s outreach to the surrounding community.
