Hospitality is an important part of the life of St. John’s. It is both the means by which we as a Parish continue to share in the gifts of community and enjoy the fellowship of one another after we leave the Altar and come together at Coffee Hour, or celebrate special moments in the life of the Parish such as birthdays, baptisms, Annual Parish Meetings, Lenten Soup Suppers, etc.

It is also the way we extend our hospitality to others beyond the congregation offering an enlarged and expanded welcome in all that we do: by making pies for inclusion in the Town’s Thanksgiving Day baskets; through dinners marking certain events such as Mardi Gras, the Summer Food Festival, the Bleak Midwinter and Burns Night dinners, and the Bridge Luncheon all of which contribute to the Church’s Outreach work; stocking the Larder for the Bazaar; preparing hors d’oeuvres for the Bazaar Preview Party and lunch on the shopping day of the Bazaar.

Something is always cooking at St. John’s and talented cadres of cooks assist in this work as members of the Coffee Hour Team, or regular participants in the Kitchen Krewe.
