St. Titus’ is a warm, welcoming community of folks who strive to follow Jesus. Founded in 1885, we are proud of our roots as a historically Black congregation. Today we are just as proud to be a diverse community where absolutely everyone is welcome. We invite you to explore this website to learn more about us. And, when we’re able to gather in person again, we hope you will visit, either for a worship service or for one of our other activities. We’d love to have you join us on the journey.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

St. Titus’ is a diverse and growing community committed to walking with Christ by serving others, pursuing justice and welcoming all.

OUR VISION STATEMENT

God dreams for St. Titus’ to be sacred ground where all of God’s children experience the unconditional love of Jesus. In faithful response, we will offer Spirit-filled worship where people from diverse backgrounds encounter God. As an intergenerational community, we will deepen our faith through sharing scripture, Christian tradition and our own experience. We will be open and authentic with one another, and respond to the needs of our neighbors with compassion and creativity. Our passion for God’s justice and peace will compel us to become agents for social, political, and economic transformation. St. Titus’ will be Beloved Community.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

The Rev. Dr. Alicia Alexis announced as Interim Rector

Letter from St. Titus’ Vestry:

The St. Titus’ Vestry is pleased to announce that the Rev. Dr. Alicia Alexis has accepted the call to be our Interim Rector. She will begin her ministry with us on May 1, 2022.

Rev. Alicia brings many gifts with her, one of which is that she has a thorough understanding of the role of an Interim Rector. She has specialized training and experience in intentional interim ministry, and brings with her an exciting vision of the work that we might accomplish during the interim period. We appreciate the fact that Rev. Alicia is good at thinking “outside the box” and yet is capable of executing her vision in an intentional and productive way. And one of the things that we noted is that she believes it is also important to have fun as we work to accomplish our goals.

Rev. Alicia is committed to helping people discern their gifts and empowering them to use these gifts in serving God and one another. She is passionate about social justice and spreading God’s love through our actions and through our lives. She also recognizes the need for compassionate pastoral care that many of us might have as we continue to struggle with issues regarding the pandemic and the sense of loss that we are experiencing at the retirement of Rev. Stephanie.

One of the characteristics of a time of transition is that it is fraught with uncertainties. Rev. Alicia clearly has a strong sense of call and self and she radiates peace. This will be a real help to us as we work to negotiate the unfamiliar.

We are truly blessed that God has called Rev. Alicia to minister to us, and with us. Please join the Vestry in extending a warm St. Titus’ welcome to Rev. Alicia as she joins us as our Interim Rector.

Letter from Rev. Alicia Alexis
April 5, 2022

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. To All Members of the Vestry and to the people of St. Titus Episcopal Church:

Your Vestry recently extended the call to invite me to join with you in ministry as your Intentional Interim Rector. I am delighted to be with your parish community in this role. My first day with you will be Sunday, May 1, 2022. I invite you to call or stop by during the week so we can become acquainted.

Who am I? I was born and raised in Trinidad, West Indies and now reside in Whitsett, North Carolina. My daughter, Mary lives in Olean, New York. You will be meeting her during our time together. She is excited to meet you in person as I am. Although we are not with you, please know that you are now with us in our thoughts and prayers.

This time between permanent rectors is a time that can be filled with uncertainty and anxiety, but it can also be a time of real growth. I am pleased to become a member of your leadership team to help navigate this turbulent time we live in. I look forward to walking with you and to assist in this time of transition. I am confident that God will guide us on our journey together.

I leave you with the words from the Prophet Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and future.”

Yours in Christ,
Alicia Alexis+
Rev. Alicia Alexis, Interim Rector

Solidarity Statement

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over– like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?
–Langston Hughes

Racism, deeply embedded in the psyche of America, has been allowed to exist for far too long in our country. For over 400 years, People of Color have been subjected to systemic and systematic deprivation of basic human rights guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence—life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
