Welcome Back Sunday!
On Sunday, September 12, 2021 the congregation gathered in the church to celebrate Welcome Back Sunday. The service included our traditional blessing of the backpacks led by our Curate, Mary Beth Mills-Curran. We also took this opportunity to honor Josie Greco at the conclusion of her 16 years of ministry at St. John's and celebrated the start of the church year with our traditional Holy Smokes Barbecue.
The service included a heartfelt thank you to Josie with tributes offered by Claire and Brook Parks, Seamus Mitchell, and the Rector, The Very Rev. Gideon L. K. Pollach. Special music was offered by our children's choirs prepared by Jun Kim and directed for the last time by Josie Greco singing "To Share" from Stone Soup, one of our traditional lenten musicals
Special thanks to Winn Keaten, Seamus Mitchell, Stephen White, and Anna Wresch for their incredible work coordinating the Barbecue and preparing the food. Special thanks to our Vestry Members who served as servers for the food and to Adam Waywell for his logistical support.
It was an incredible day and we look forward to more Sundays together at St. John's!
