Update Regarding Public Worship in the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island & at St. John's


Dear Friends,                                                                                                                    March 20th, 2020

 

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1

 

We pray that during this period of uncertainty and social distancing you and your families are finding ways to keep healthy, comfortable, and faithful. On the afternoon of Thursday March 20th there was a conference call for all diocesan clergy with Bishop Provenzano. It was on this call that Bishop Provenzano told us that the suspension of public worship throughout all parishes of the Diocese, due to the spread of the Coronavirus, has been extended to May 17th, 2020.

 

This is certainly difficult for us all to hear as it means we cannot worship together for Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter. But, rest assured, your clergy and staff will be working hard to offer more online worship opportunities, including virtual Sunday School offerings. We will continue our Morning Prayer offerings and will develop online worship opportunities for Holy Week and Easter. Stay tuned!

 

A note for all of us as we continue to navigate our way in these unclear times. George Stimola, our treasurer reminds us, that, St. John's needs us as deeply as we need the church. The clergy and staff are still here for us, making sure that we feel God's love online and on the phone. Can we find a way to maintain our support in these weeks away from in-person services? It's easy and it feels good, like reclaiming a small bit of normalcy and empowerment in the midst of change. We can send checks, give online, or call the church and talk with one of our amazing staff for guidance.

 

As well, along with the suspension of public worship, also cancelled are: Baptisms in April and May, St. John's Annual Meeting, St. John's Spring Dance, and Confirmation at the Cathedral.


If there are any Pastoral emergencies, or you would simply like to talk to one of your clergy, we are available by phone or email. Please, reach out to us! 

 

Please know that each of you and your families are in our prayers during this difficult time. Do keep yourselves safe, healthy, and hopeful, for, “hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.” – Romans 5:5.

 

Peace and blessings from St. John’s,

 

Father Mark & Father Stephen

 

 

 

WORSHIP UPDATE

 

 

 

WORSHIP ON MARCH 22nd, 2020 THE FOURTH SUNDAY IN LENT 
 
Dear Friends,
 
 
God is our refuge and strength, * a very present help in trouble.
Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth be moved, *
and though the mountains be toppled into the depths of the sea. Ps. 46: 1,2
 
 
A blessed Fourth Sunday of Lent to you! We invite you this morning to join in two online worship opportunities.
 
First, at 9:30am, we will post a service of Morning Prayer Rite II from St. John's on our St. John's Facebook page. You can find a pdf of the Order of Service for this offering of Morning Prayer here, and it will also be attached to the Facebook post, so you can follow along and take part in the service.
 
Second, at 11:15am the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. will live stream, here, a service of The Holy Eucharist, with The Bishop of Washington, DC, The Rt. Rev'd Mariann Budde, and the Dean of the National Cathedral, The Very Rev'd Randy Hollerith.
 
As we navigate these scary and unparalleled times, we do so as a faith community, we do so with one another, we do so with Jesus Christ. As well, we do so through our prayers, both personal and corporate. Please join us in prayer and worship this morning, either through our Morning Prayer service or the National Cathedral's offering of Holy Eucharist.
 
This week we will offer, again, online Morning Prayer Rite 2 on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9:00am and Evening Prayer Rite 1 on Wednesday evening at 6:00pm.
 
However you choose to join in worship this morning, simply pray. Pray for those affected by the Coronavirus and for their families. Pray for the doctors, nurses, medical techs, and all those doing everything they can to help heal and comfort those who are sick and scared. Pray for our parish family. Pray for our leaders. And, finally, pray for one another.
 
"Gracious Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world:Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we inhim; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen".
-The Collect for the Fourth Sunday in Lent.
 
Peace and blessings from St. John's,

Father Mark and Father Stephen
