St. John’s Church is an Anglican/Episcopal, Christian community worshipping through the power of the Holy Spirit for over 200 years.

St. John’s is much more than a Sunday morning worship experience. It is a family that worships, prays, serves, studies, and has fun together and we invite you to join us in making our family, your family.

If you do not have a church home and would like to make St. John’s your parish of choice; or have a need our church family can help with,  please contact our Parish Administrator, Jeannette, at the church office (315) 393-5470 


  • Advent Service of Lessons and Carols - December 17 @ 9 am

    On Sunday, December 17th at 9 am we will celebrate the Third Sunday of Advent with the beautiful service of Advent Lessons and Carols. Drawing on 19th century traditions, Eric Milner-White, Dean of Cambridge Chapel in England, created this service that has been continually held in the chapel (and around the world) since 1918. The service of nine short lessons that tell the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus are interspersed with seasonal carols bringing focus to the themes of the candles we light during Advent: hope, peace, joy and love. During the service, the children will help us set up our new creche at the front of the church. 

  • Thursday Service in the Chapel

    Please join us for the daily office of Morning Prayer on Thursdays in the Chapel at 9:30 am.

     At our Thursday services we reflect on appropriate commemorations from  the Liturgical Calendar and "The Great Cloud of Witnesses".  On December 14th we remember John of the Cross.

  • Bible Study - Thursdays at 10:30 am in the Parish Hall

    Bible Study meets on Thursdays at 10:30 am in the Parish Hall. 

    We continue our study of the Gospel of Mark when we meet on December 14th reading chapter 4:1-34.

    We begin our study using the Lecto Divina method:  What word or phrase stood out for you? What questions did the reading raise? What emotion did the reading evoke? We will also use N.T. Wright's study guide to "Mark for Everyone" to help frame our discussion.  

    All are welcome to join us for Bible Study at 10:30 am or begin the morning by attending Morning Prayer in the Chapel at 9:30am.


  • Vestry Meeting - Tuesday, December 12th

    Vestry meets on December 12th at 6:30 pm in the Parish Hall.  All are welcome to attend.

  • Food Pantry Distribution Day -Tuesday December 19th CHANGE!

    On the last Tuesday of each month, St. John's hosts a distribution of food to those in need. With the suspension of services at the Salvation Army, there is tremendous need in Ogdensburg.

    We would welcome donations of cereal and canned ravioli. Please bring your food gift to church on Sunday, December 17th for our December 19th distribution. Basic staples -- canned vegetables, instant potatoes, soups, stews, pasta and sauce, cereal and peanut butter -- are always welcome to help fill our shelves. Financial support can be used to purchase perishable goods. 

    Note:  Next distribution is Tuesday, December 19th! Please note this is one week earlier because of Christmas.

    To visit the food pantry please come to the parking lot off Franklin Street and enter the Parish Hall via the deck. Please bring identification.

    Can you help on distribution days? Please see Rose Sovie or Donna Burdick. 

  • Moving Forward - Parish Sustainability

    At our annual meeting this past February, the parish family determined that given our current financial situation we would commit this year to coming up with a sustainable path forward.  To that end, the vestry has written a charter, (a  document that states our mission, goals, and objectives) to for us to realistically look at our options.  The charter provides focus and helps tune the message for everyone in the parish and the larger community.

    See the Parish Sustainability tab in the Navigation Bar for detailed information as we move forward.
