December 10 from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, Bishop Dennis Drainville will lead an Advent Retreat at St John's, exploring the voices calling from the edge, from nearby, and to the heart. For detailed information, click here. Plan to attend and experience a day of spiritual refreshment and encouragement.
In early October, our parish organized three opportunities to get together and talk about what St. John’s does best, and what we might do over the next three years (2017-2020) in order to continue to thrive. The report on this Appreciative Inquiry process is now available by clicking the link below, or in hard copy from the parish office, and we encourage all parishioners to read it.
Discovering and dreaming what our future could be was an inspiring experience for all who took part. Now we need to build on that energy. Over the coming weeks and months, the Making Connections Working Group, in consultation with Parish Council and the parish at large, will develop a plan to implement the parish’s vision for 2020. We will be soon be asking you for your opinion on what our priorities should be, and then the Working Group will develop an action plan that will be a very important element of our discussions at the annual Vestry on February 12. Stay tuned!
