 St. John’s Mission StatementTo Live the Love of God with hearts open to all, strengthened by joyful worship, inspired by the Holy Spirit and dedicated to serving Christ in the world.

St. John’s Vision StatementSt. John’s is a dynamic, multi-generational and multi-ethnic church growing by creatively seeking out and embracing youth and young adults as well as those seeking a welcoming, inclusive place of worship; guided by strong leadership; focused on effective communications, and committed to enhancing our existing ministries.

Parish lifeAt St. John’s, we endeavor to nourish individual spiritual growth through worship, the sacraments, education, healing services, fellowship, and group Bible study.

Women’s and men’s Saturday morning breakfasts bring parishioners together on a regular basis and are led by laypersons; quiet days and retreats offer opportunities for reflection; while flower delivery to shut-ins, the altar guild and numerous committees provide avenues for involvement.

St. John’s is a tolerant parish. The “St. John’s way” is to allow for virtually every shade of opinion within our parish. It is expected that parishioners will express any concerns to the clergy or to Wardens or members of the vestry so that matters may be handled with Christian care and compassion. If common ground cannot be found, we simply agree to disagree and move on.

St. John’s is in the Connecticut Diocese, Province One, of the Episcopal Church, USA and follows the rubrics concerning church policies. We support the diocese financially according to the standards set by the diocesan convention and maintain cordial relations with the diocese.
