In worship, we use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer

 


 

Reading the Scriptures, praying together, and sharing a common meal are the ways that Christians from earliest times have enjoyed fellowship with one another and with the risen Lord, and so we continue.

Grounded in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, our worship service is liturgical and based upon the ancient traditions of the Christian faith, and it is also Biblical, rooted in the Word of God.

We welcome visitors by showing forth God's gracious invitation to taste and see that the Lord is good.

St. John's is a community of believers with varying backgrounds, interests and experiences; but in Jesus Christ we are made one body.

Please feel free to contact our parish office or one of our clergy should you desire more information.  

 

What is Anglican Worship

If you are new to an Anglican worship service, then (depending on your experience in other church settings) it may strike you as a little strange.  In contrast to many of the worship services you might attend today, Anglican worship is formal—that is, it follows a set pattern.  The “blueprint” for Anglican worship is the Book of Common Prayer.   Read More


MESSAGE FROM FR. MARK

I want to take only a few moments of your time to chat and update you on things here.

First, I wish to express my gratitude to our my family for their unrelenting care and love; to my doctors who have gone beyond the call to provide care and treatment (and who pray for me during our visits!!), and to the people of St. John’s and our Bishop for your faithful service, prayers, and support during this time of crisis.  I cannot begin to find words to express my deepest thanks!!

Today I had appointments to be assessed and develop updated treatments.  There is good news in that I am making slow progress with this and with time should have a good recovery.  The not-so-good news is that I still have Covid pneumonia and will require at least 3 more weeks of medications and multiple daily breathing treatments.  The goal is to eliminate the pneumonia, but even more the cystic fibrosis that results from the virus.  Needless to say, I am more than a bit disappointed not to be clear, but realize, as my doctors have indicated, is not measured in days but weeks.   I am struggling with this mentally as I miss all of you and regret the difficulties this has wrought, but covet your ongoing prayers.

St. Paul reminds us that “all things work for good for those who are called according to His purposes”.  He is not suggesting all things are good…some are clearly not and Covid IS NOT.  He is infusing into us the awareness that God can use all situations to continue His good will for creation even as illness plagues us.   God’s faithfulness to us is not measured in momentary results but in His infinite goodness to never leave us alone in our challenges.

I pray daily for all of you and your well-being and safety!

Fr. Mark
