At St. John’s, worship is at the center of our life together. We gather together weekly to reflect on Scripture and give thanks in the celebration of Holy Eucharist. We'd love for you to join us in-person or online.
SPRING WORSHIP SCHEDULE
Sunday Services at 8:00 am and 10:00 am
We hold services at 8 and 10 o’clock. The 8:00 service is spoken Rite I Holy Communion. The 10:00 service is Rite II Holy Eucharist with choir. Both services are officiated from the high altar.
Children of all ages are always welcome in our services. The sound of children in church is holy! That said, for parents and caregivers who prefer it, childcare is available at the 10:00 service for children 6 and under.
In line with guidance from the Diocese of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, we advise that individuals wear a mask if they have a weakened immune system, or if they are at increased risk for severe disease because of age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in their household is at risk. There will be a "safety section" at church for those who want or need to maintain physical distance and wear a mask at all times. Masks for others are optional.
We offer Communion in both kinds. Individuals at higher risk from COVID or any other infection may wish to refrain from receiving from the Common Cup. Intinction continues to be discouraged because it is less sanitary than drinking from the cup.
On the first Sunday of the month, we offer a special children’s worship experience for those ages 4 to about fifth grade. During the Gospel hymn, children process to the Meditation Chapel for age-appropriate worship and learning; they return in time for the Peace.
Middle School and High School
Youth in Middle School and High School are encouraged to participate in Sunday services as acolytes, crucifers or lectors. See the clergy about training. We will also be holding regular events for families to participate in outside of Sunday morning, so keep an eye on the weekly email for more information.
