Special Occasions in May

Rogation Sunday – Beating the Bounds of the Parish

Blessing the Garden and the Gardners

After the 10 ams service on May 1, we gathered outside to walk the boundaries of our property. Our children blessed the land, the Memorial Garden, and we finished by giving thanks for all our gardeners as we stood around the outdoor altar.


Beating the Bounds

Celebrate Pentecost with Baptisms, Song, and the gift of the Holy Spirit  Sunday May 15 is Pentecost, the culmination of the Great Fifty Days of Easter. We recall the coming of the Holy Spirit to the first followers of Jesus, and we rejoice in the baptisms of the newest members of Christ’s Body here at St. John’s.


We hope you will get a glimpse of our life together here. We are a community whose life and purpose is shaped by the love of God, the call of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit. A vital presence in our city since 1840, we are currently celebrating our 175th anniversary as a parish. We cherish the gifts of members who have been here all their lives, and take delight in all the gifts that the newest among us share.
