Dear Sisters & Brother,
There are many, many opportunities to worship with Episcopalians around the country at many individual parish websites. What a wonderful opportunity for all of us to experience worship with others who worship in buildings different from our own and in ways different from our own. That “Anglican Tent’ is very large and accommodates many diverse styles and forms.
At St. John’s we are currently, worshiping online each Sunday Morning @ 10:00am and Evenings @ 8:00. For access please email us to get on the distribution list.
Activities going on Virtually:
