For those who love to sing in church, St. John’s welcomes pick-up singers to join the “summer choir,” which begins on Sunday, June 30th.  Those who wish to participate on any given Sunday during the summer months are welcome to just show up a few minutes early in the choir stalls to go over the congregational hymns and propers for the day with the organist.  Please invite your friends and neighbors to come and make a joyful noise!

 

On behalf of the Washington Council of Congregations, St. John’s will be hosting a Blood Drive July 12th.  The Red Cross will be taking appointments for that date.  To make an appointment, go online: https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/donation-time

 St. John's Reading Club

CURRENT SELECTION

Brian Moore's "Catholics: A Novel" to gather for a Group Discussion via ZOOM, so start reading now.

The parable-like Catholics is a futuristic tale of ecclesiastical politics and moral questioning.  Written in 1972 and set in the near future, it features a world where the Catholic Church as gone beyond Vatican II and has now abandoned almost all its mysteries for a more secular form of worship.  Confession, along with the traditional Latin Mass has been banned, in preparation for a merging of Christian and Buddhist faiths  There is however, resistance from a remove Irish Abbey which continues with the old traditions.

The St. John's Reading Club is open to the public and meets regularly via ZOOM 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.

The Washington Refugee Resettlement Project (WRRP) is an IRIS Community Co-Sponsor!
