Episcopal 101

Whether you have been a member of St. John’s your entire life or you’ve recently joined chances are you have some questions about the Episcopal Church and what we believe and how we worship. If you are interested in learning more about St. John’s, the Episcopal Church, and how we are called to live as followers of Jesus Christ I invite you to join me for our upcoming Episcopal 101 class. This class meets on every other Sunday at 7pm on Zoom. Any adults who are interested in being confirmed or received are encouraged to take part in this class, but please know it is open for everyone regardless of how much you know or don’t know about our faith tradition. If you would like more information please talk with Fr. Patrick.

Sacred Ground

A Film-Based Dialogue Series on Race & Faith

Sacred Ground is a film- and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith.  Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.

The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.

This group began meeting in October of 2020 and will run through January of 2021. We are planning on starting up another Sacred Ground group later in 2021.
