Dear Members and Friends of St. John in the Wilderness,


Sunday, September 6, we plan to celebrate outdoors a  live and in person Eucharist at 10 AM in the glen behind the rectory adjacent to the park. You'll be entering around either side of the rectory. There will be hand sanitizing and bulletins to pick up.


Or Join Zoom worship at 9 AM


Please email me any new prayer requests for Prayers of the People (also any removals).


Everyone is asked to bring their own communion bread for safety reasons – as only you will be touching it. There will be single communion hosts in separate plastic cups - one per cup on a table untouched 4 days prior to Sunday morning – for any who forget to bring or don't bring bread.


People are asked to bring lawn chairs, masks – and prayer books if you have one to bring. The plan is to continue this schedule for the remainder of the summer. We plan to have on hand extra masks, extra chairs, and hand sanitizer.

We are planning for social distancing, sanitizing and general safety.


Please email me any new prayer requests for Prayers of the People (also any removals).

Please be comfortable choosing either the 9 AM Zoom service or the 10 AM outdoor service (or both if you're in the mood).
