Thank you all for the humbling honor of attending to your spiritual and ecclesiastical needs at St. John's for going on 11 years. I tried to serve you with Christian love and devotion while attending to the physical needs of St. John's. I hope and pray that God will show His abundant Love and mercy to the entire community of St. John's as you go forward without me. The future of St. John's I pray will bring more individuals like yourselves who have made my life at St. John's so rewarding.  I tried my best to bring His Love into your lives in order for you to grow spiritually and get closer to our Lord. I am humbled by this experience and thank you for all your support these past wonderful years.

I learned a very valuable lesson while at St. Catherine's Monastery in Egypt. Fr. Andrianos told me that "You belong under the soles of peoples feet, and if you forget that you will lose all the gifts God gave you." This is the root and my modus operandi ever since I left Hermit Adrianos and St. Catherine's. I tried to live this out each and everyday, and I hope you can do the same thing in your own lives. We are all in God's Community and in His Son's Body as believing Christians. As a result, we make up the Church and His Body because of our Baptism in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Trinity in essence and undivided.

I have resumed Thursday night Bible Study on Zoom, so I you want to join our group please call, or email me in order to receive the invitation. I will continue them even after I leave St. John's, so please feel free to join us. My last Bulletin will be next week and I hope they have helped you throughout the years to overcome the many difficulties encounted in this Fallen World we live in. God Bless All of You!

Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to that same worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers to those who give it support and sustenance; to those who already belong to the church, we hope they will provide you with the assurance that your sacrificial offerings are received with profound respect, and are utilized to maximum effectiveness. They will, in any case, enable you to make the informed decisions that are necessary for a meaningful relationship with your church!
