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.
