Rev. Robert Thomas – Board Member: I was born in 1950, and was raised Roman Catholic, I later joined the Franciscans where I found love and joy in the Eucharist, Sacrament of Reconciliation and daily self-examines. I realized that God was showing us His boundless love and calling us to be a part of that love.  As a deacon in the Episcopal church, my life’s call is to live out the Franciscan values of peacemaking, service to and justice for the poor and oppressed. 

I am married to my wonderful wife Cyn and we have two sons, born 17 years apart, Doug, the younger, lives in Providence, RI. Bill, our first born, is living in Delaware with his wife, Margaret, their daughter Stephanie, my granddaughter who lives in the Seattle, Washington area with Daric, made me a great-grandfather about eleven years ago.

My work today is principally secular, having just finished church-based ministry as deacon at Trinity Episcopal Church here in Fuquay-Varina, where I served as co-head of the parish’s Outreach Committee. I am currently serving in the Episcopal Church as Dean of the Raleigh Convocation, while awaiting assignment from the Bishop.
