All Saints' Day Services

✤   10 am Rite II Service, Church - St. Bernard's

We will have a joint celebration of Holy Communion with the combined choirs of St. John on the Mountain and St. Bernard's.


All Saints' Day Dedications


During the joint Sunday service on November 4th at St. Bernard's, we will remember in prayer the names of those who have been buried from St. John on the Mountain during the past year.  In addition to reading the list of names of those who died this year, we invite you to share with us the names of those you have loved and lost.  Please send us those names, and we will remember them before God when we celebrate the Feast of All Saints.  Click here to download a form.  Please return your dedication to the office by Wednesday, October 24th.


Baptisms on Sunday, November 4th


We baptize primarily on those dates set aside for baptism, as listed in the Book of Common Prayer.  Since the presence of the community of faith is essential for welcoming the newly baptized into the church, baptisms take place in the principal service on the appointed Sunday.  The next day for Baptism is Sunday, November 4th at St. Bernard's at 10:00 am, in a joint service with that community.  Questions about baptism?  Please contact Mo. Susan at
