The Fourth Sunday of Lent


Spring Ahead - Daylight Savings Time

Don't forget to set your clocks one hour ahead before going to sleep on Saturday.  See you on time on Sunday morning!

Tuesday Evening Prayer and Pot-Luck Suppers:  Praying in Lent

On Tuesdays evenings at 6:00 pm, the community will gather for Evening Prayer in the Chapel, followed by a simple pot-luck supper. Members of our community will preside at this simple service of prayer. Bring a dish to share for supper, and come and allow the word of God to wash over you, and pray with the assembled community, as our ancestors did before us.  Join us on March 12th and 19th.

Ushers Needed 

 Please consider joining this important ministry.  Greeting people, distributing bulletins, conveying the sacred elements to the altar, and inviting parishioners to partake of Communion are central to our worship services.  No experience needed.  To sign-up or for more information contact Fenn Putman 973-543-7017 or email

Easter Adopt-a-Family


Help a struggling family this Easter, by providing an uncooked meal.  It's easy!  Just buy the makings for a meal, and deliver to your Adopt-a-Family. The sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board. For more information, please call Sue Kennedy at 908-234-0267 with any questions. If there is a particular family that you have been supporting, please let Sue know so that she can inform the Food Bank.

Easter Flowers & Special Music Dedications

St. John on the Mountain is now accepting contributions for Easter plants, flowers, and special music.  Gifts may be given either as memorials or in thanksgiving. Click here to download form. 

Handbell Choir - Ringers Needed


Do you love music but consider yourself more of an instrumentalist than a singer?  The Hand Bell Choir of St. John on the Mountain has several openings for ringers.  No prior experience with hand bells is required but reading music is necessary, especially being able to count those naughty half notes, quarter notes and eighth notes!  If you are interested in trying it, please contact  Rick Morgan, Director of Music for more information.

Music in the Somerset Hills Concert on Sunday, March 17th at 4 pm

Emericus is the husband and wife duo composed of Elise Figa, a mezzo-soprano, and Carlos Cuestas, a classical guitarist and specialist in early plucked-string instruments.  Their program, Música de España, features art song from 17th and 19th century Spain on themes of love, longing and travel, performed on historical guitars. Tickets are $20 each for adults, $15 for seniors, and $10 for students and may be purchased at the door.

Grace's Soup Kitchen

St. John on the Mountain will help prepare and serve lunch on Friday, March 29th from 10 am - 1 pm, which is Good Friday.  Schools are closed that day.  So, it's a good day for the kids to assist.  Sign-up sheets are on bulletin board outside next to the parish hall or contact Sally Hespe
