Worship & Prayer...Many Visible hearts and invisible hands serve st. John's
Worship is at the heart of our gratitude for Christ’s life among us and offers us the collective opportunity to affirm and deepen our faith. Through the work of several ministry teams including, our worship aims to bring our community into a closer relationship with God and each other. These ministry teams, coordinate and encourage the spiritual and liturgical life of the parish, and support our clergy before, during, and after worship services. Many visible and “invisible” hearts and hands volunteer their time, energy, and talents to make our variety of worship possible.
