Fellow parishioner Kelly Benshoff has developed a motor neuron disease, currently
diagnosed as Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS) or possible Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and needs the prayers and support of her fellow parishioners at St. John’s. Louise LaChance is organizing a prayer campaign for Kelly where parishioners agree to pray for her each day at noon when you take your lunch break. Louise suggests that you set your cell phone to remind you each day at noon to pray for Kelly. Kelly would like our prayers for a reverse of this disease, for better health and spiritual strength to meet the challenges ahead. Please email Louise at louise_violist@yahoo.com to let her know that you will be praying for Kelly.

 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.
