 Featured Events at St. John’s!
 
                            Stephen Clapp Memorial Concert!

 

Clapp Flyer 2015St John’s Episcopal Church will be presenting its first annual Stephen Clapp Memorial Concert at 4pm on Sunday, February 15th in the sanctuary at St John’s, 628 Main Street in Stamford.

A longtime, much loved parishioner and leader at St John’s who died early in 2014, Stephen was also Dean Emeritus of the storied Juilliard School, where he also taught violin for many years. To honor his memory, two of his students will present a program of classical violin music, accompanied by pianist Eduard Laurel.

Though still a Juilliard student, Sirena Huang has already established herself as one of the leading violinists of her generation. She has played with many of the major American symphony orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. She has won innumerable prizes and competitions, including the Cooper International Competition and the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians.

Jordan Hendy, now an undergraduate at Juilliard, studied with Stephen Clapp for many years in the pre-college division. Inspired by his work with Stephen at the Credo Music Festival, Jordan has performed extensively for charitable causes such as the World Youth Alliance, Wafaa Younis Violin Project for Israel, Autism Speaks, Mosquito Net Project for Ministry of Hope, and Hearts for Honduras.

Bring in a can of soup (or any canned food) to show your support for the team you want to win the Super Bowl. We will have collection areas for each team and see who wins the most support.

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 life -At 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.
