What’s Going on at St. John’s
Beginning on Sunday, January 26th and continuing through the rest of Epiphany season, we will begin a study entitled, “If This is Our Church, What Is Our Story?” Look for details after January 1, but we hope everyone will participate, for each of us is a storyteller and character in the ongoing story.
Epiphany is traditionally a season for people to have their homes blessed, as we celebrate walking with Jesus and welcoming him into our lives. If you would like to have your home blessed, please see Fr David. You might want to have your home blessed if it has not been blessed before, or there have been changes to the home since the last time it was blessed, or there has been a transition in your family. A blessing might be done with just your family, or as a parish gathering. Whatever shape it takes, it can be a wonderful experience of inviting and welcoming the presence of God into your life through your home.
