Description

Strengths

St. John’s is well known in our diocese for our vibrant and dynamic liturgy. One unique tradition at St. John’s is the performance of liturgical dramas, whole-parish enactments of stories from scripture through pageantry, music, and performance. These dramas have become important and anticipated guideposts for the congregation throughout the church year and have helped the community more deeply engage the stories that shape their faith. Ex. “Do not be afraid” Christmas Pageant Video https://vimeo.com/486199569/dbb18b23bd

Challenges

At St. John’s, our history has taught us that accepting and embracing true diversity is challenging. As a result, we have come to claim a firm, undying commitment to inclusion. So here is our invitation to you: regardless of your cultural background, ethnicity, gender, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or heterosexual identity, economic status, physical or cognitive ability – you will not be labeled, singled out or excluded here. You will be welcomed, affirmed, embraced and celebrated! We will be better because you are here. Unanimously adopted by the St. John’s Parish
