NYC Postcard: St. Thomas Episcopal

I visited St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Manhattan on July 29, 2018, at the end of my youngest daughter’s week at the Girls Chorister program. It’s a beautiful church and very Anglo-Catholic in its worship.

St John the Evangelist, Waterloo, Diocese of Southwark

The church is part of the Diocese of Southwark in the Church of England.

I’m guessing this was the altar area.
