Evening Prayer on Tuesdays: Praying in Lent


March 11th, March 18th, March 25th, April 1, April 8

On Tuesdays evenings at 6 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. 

 

Adult Formation

  Three-part Series on Initiation into the 

Body of Christ Through Baptism

March 23, March 30, and April 6, 

immediately following the 10:00 service

 

 This year at St. John's we will have a three-part adult formation series on initiation into the Body of Christ through Baptism.  We will also talk about the Eucharist as the on-going way God strengthens the once-and-for-all bonds established in baptism.  We will also spend one Sunday exploring Confirmation:  a rite that was originally part of baptism but for many cultural reasons was split off into a separate thing.  The Church is still trying to figure out what it is and what to do with it!

 

Baptism on Saturday, April 19th


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.  Questions about baptism?  Please contact the office 908-766-2282 or office@sjotm.org. The 2014 dates for Holy Baptism

  • Saturday, April 19th - The Great Vigil of Easter
  • Sunday, June 8th - The Day of Pentecost 
  • Sunday, November 2nd - All Saints' Sunday
