    Thanks to all of you who made bags. One nurse at Nathan Littaeur called her Tea for the Soul to Go bag a "lifeline". You did that. You drew and created and shared and we got to tell essential workers from Albany to Johnstown that we cared. Thank you.

  • Service of Compline, 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays

    Compline is the final prayer service of the day and it means "completion", which refers to the end of the day. It is a brief and comforting service that anyone can say at home on their own, but we thought it would be especially comforting to say it together if possible during our time of self-isolation.  You can use the Book of Common Prayer at home if you have one and turn to page 127, or the pdf of Compline is found here.

    The service will be braodcast using Facebook Live on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. You DO NOT need a facebook page to access this since St. John's has a public page. To connect to the facebook page, click here:
    St. John's Facebook page

    Simply add your prayer requests during the service by submitting it to the Comments section at the bottom of the live stream. We can then add your concerns and thanksgivings to that evening's service.
