- Why St. John’s
- Mission & Outreach
Every Wednesday during Lent, various priests from parishes and dioceses across the south will come to St. John’s. They will preach at the noonday service and at 6:30pm that night, they will teach on a topic of their choice. A meal is offered after the noonday service (there is a charge). It is prepared each week by various Montgomery Episcopal parishes and various St. John’s ECW guilds.
A meal is also offered at 6pm, before the teaching begins at 6:30pm.
There is a separate teaching offered for children and youth of the parish on Wednesday nigths as well.
Children ages K-6 will have a series called “Keeping the fizz in your faith” & the youth of the parish will hang out with Caitlin in the EYC room, keeping it real & relevant.
