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.
The health and safety of the most vulnerable in our congregation and community remains the highest concern to St. John’s. Remember that many in our communities are not vaccinated; those who are immuno-compromised, and those who have chosen not to be vaccinated for other reasons.
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.
