• New Sunday School Unit beginning April 21st
  • We start acolyte training early!!
 

Welcome

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

    In preparation for May 16th please read John 1:19-28 "The Evidence of John".

    We begin our study using the Lectio 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  "John for Everyone" to help frame our discussion.

  • Food Pantry Distribution Day -Tuesday May 28th

    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.

    This month, we especially ask for macaroni and cheese dinners and instant potatoes although any basic staple -- 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, May 28th.

    To visit the food pantry 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.
