Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart (and especially the hearts of the people of this land), that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Book of Common Prayer, page 823

Welcome Boxes

St. John's has begun collecting for a bedroom box. The list of items is in the back of the sanctuary. These boxes are given to families from Afganistan being relocated in the Buffalo area.                                 




St. John's in the News 

St. John's Church is featured on a new poster by Tom Rivers, The Doors of Medina. Last year the church was included in a new book, History of Sandstone in Orleans County, NY by author Jim Friday.  Published in 2021, the book gives a number of examples of local buildings, including our own, described as having "charm and historical significance."




Partnership Worship 

Since March 2020, hundreds of people across the partnership have gathered for online worship on Sunday mornings. A half-hour worship service continues to be offered on Sundays at 9 a.m. The format is a Zoom Meeting, which means participants can choose to have their cameras and microphones on to see and speak with one another. Preachers and worship leaders will be chosen from across the partnership. Once a month, the service will focus on prayers for reconciliation and healing.
