About St. John's

 


 

Church can be about many things. Here at St. John's it is about the three essentials of a healthy spiritual life: faith, family, and friends. For nearly 175 years, the people of St. John's have experienced the power of faith to transform, the love of family to heal, and the camaraderie of friends to restore.


Today we continue to be such a parish, as multi-generational Staten Islanders gather with those newly arrived to the Island—from a neighboring borough, across the country, or across the globe.

St. John's is a thriving international parish that grows week by week as more and more people discover for themselves the essentials of a healthy, vibrant spiritual life.


Perhaps this is just the kind of parish you are looking for. Come and see for yourself if this is the place where your faith can grow, your family can thrive, and new friendships can be made.

Election Day Vigil


Beginning Monday, November 5, 2018


8:00 PM


ONE GOSPEL FOR ALL PEOPLE

A 24 HOUR MARATHON READING OF THE

GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

TO PROMOTE PEACE, HOPE AND UNITY FOR ALL PEOPLES

You are invited to join neighbors and friends on Monday, November 5th beginning at 8:00 pm as we open our church for 24 straight hours to hold a  vigil to promote peace, hope, and unity for our country and all peoples.  The vigil will end on Tuesday, November 6th, one hour before the voting polls close.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ offers an alternative to partisan politics and the current divisiveness of the political climate.

 

All are invited to hear the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in fellowwhip with one another regardless of political beliefs.  Jesus Christ came to break down the walls that we erect to divide us by nation of origin, race, ethnicity, sexual orinetation, gender, gender identity, or ability.  To truly make America great we are called to live into the words of the Gospel that requires each of us to love our neighbors as ourselves.  One of the ways we do this is by welcoming all people into the full benefits of American society.  This 24 Hour continuous reading of the Gospels is an expression of our church's commitment to a more just and equitable society for all people.

 

In addition to the continuous public reading of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, prayer stations and other opportunities for reflection and spiritual communion will be available.
