Happy Memorial Day

Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.




To Everyone at St. John's Getty Square: 
We cannot adequately express our appreciation for your wonderful support of the 2016 Justice for Farmworker March.  Our heartfelt apologies for the huge delay caused by overwhelming enthusiasm of supporters first at the gospel jazz at St. Stephen's in Marble Hill and then by our being enveloped by the Obreros Unidos on South Broadway on our way to Getty Square.  

Your help over the many weeks preparing for this event, from hanging the banner, to organizing food and drink, to the willingness to stay way past the service time in order to accommodate our group, were greatly appreciated and will be remembered always.  

A special thanks to parish administrator Jan Valentine, to George Morrison, to The Rev. Tony Hoeltzel and most of all to Carol Craft. You are terrific people with a beautiful and most amazing house of worship. It has been a privilege to work with you.     

With heartfelt appreciation from everyone on the march.

Lenten Program, Sundays. Feb. 14th, Mar. 6th & Mar. 13th: Book Study: The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander

Our prisons are disproportionately filled with black and Latino prisoners for minor non-violent drug offenses while studies consistently show whites commit these offenses at roughly the same proportion yet do not enter the criminal justice system.  Alexander makes her case using detailed analysis and a vast body of research to show that this has become a situation as damaging to the black population as Jim Crow was of former days.  You do not need to read the book to attend.  Please come and learn about both the justice and spiritual issues this book raises.

Announcement Party

 
Our St. John's Restoration Campaign began in April 2013.  After much fund-raising, being awarded several grants, developing plans for the restoration of the front fa├žade of the church we now wish to announce to the public some good news.  Please join us for an after-work celebration on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at the Yonkers Brewing Company.

It is appropriate to hold the event at the local brewery because one of the windows being restored memorializes Edward Underhill whose family built the first Yonkers Brewery once located on Chicken Island.

Come join us as we celebrate this historic building and our efforts to care for it!  You can make your reservation by clicking the link below.
