Due to COVID-19 and the recommendations of our state government, we have moved most of our events online until further notice. The leadership of St. John’s Church is actively monitoring the COVID-19 developments as it relates to the safety and well-being of our staff, members, and local community. Your safety is our top priority. We will continuously monitor the counsel of our government officials and the Episcopal Church of Connecticut, and keep you informed of updates pertaining to any St. John’s events, live services and/or gatherings.
This, and every Sunday, we invite you to join us in-person or online with your family and friends at 10am on Facebook. Please check back often for upcoming events that engage with our ministries online.

ST. JOHN'S READING CLUB
Anthony Trollope's "The Warden"
Tuesday, April 27, 10:00 a.m. via ZOOM
Septimus Harding, the warden of the title, is a kindly and naïve clergyman who finds himself caught between the forces of entrenched tradition and radical reform amid the burgeoning materialism of Britain in the 1850s. The deeply insightful portrayals of figures such as the booming Archdeacon Grantly and the beautiful Eleanor Harding at the heart of this moving and deliciously comical tale launched the enduringly popular Barsetshire Chronicles series of six novels, and won Anthony Trollope an eternal seat in the pantheon of great literary figures.
The St. John's Reading Club meets once a month to discuss a novel previously selected. It is assumed that all participants will have already read the book by the time of the meeting, at which all will be welcome to discuss their reactions to the work with all the others gathered. So stop watching the news channels non-stop and get the book now, and start reading!
