Meet Our Clergy

The Reverend Dr. Malcolm Ellis


I come to you as a priest, husband, father, and friend committed to becoming a part of your community and parish. I was born and raised in South Africa, where I studied and was ordained as a priest. Tess and I were married there and we both studied further in Chicago.

We returned to South Africa and were blessed with three children, and then immigrated to the USA in 1987. Since being here, we have been in parishes around the country: Illinois, Florida, Minnesota and Texas and had two more children!! My grandchildren are my great delight.

The Reverend Nathan Erdman

Assistant Priest

During my time serving in youth and Christian education ministry, I discovered a passion for sharing the Good News of the Gospel with people of all ages. I hope and pray that we will grow closer to Christ and one another at St. Thomas’, and continue to make the saving love of Christ known to our children, our friends, our neighbors, and to the world around us.
