A few thoughts from the priest about St. John's.
From this web site and its links you know that we worship the Lord with traditional Anglo-Catholic beauty that appeals to the hearts of many, both young and senior from many cultural and economic backgrounds.
I've seen a desire in most people to be "spiritual." There are several ideas today on how to go about doing that. For most people, the best way is still the one the Lord Jesus himself established, namely the Church.
That sounds old fashioned. It is. That may seem narrow minded. That it also is. Yet the Church, in spite of how it sometimes gets itself into human troubles, is the basic disperser of the Word, the Sacraments and the care of souls.
Like it or hate it, wouldn't you prefer a departed loved one to be commended to Heaven by the Church? Amazingly, younger generations rather assume that the Church will just be there when it's convenient, while doing nothing themselves to preserve or nurture it.
St. John's is blessed with a good distribution of ages and families. Children are watched over and welcomed. It doesn't seem to lack for much, except possibly you if the Lord lays it on your heart to be with us.
We are eager to share the Gospel. Vestry meetings are pleasant (really) and open to all. If there are any substantial secrets or serious interpersonal warfare here, then I don't know about them. St. John's affairs are handled responsibly.
May the Lord bless you greatly on your spiritual journey. (I know you are on one or you wouldn't be reading this fine print.)
