The mission of this parish has been summed up in the words of Jesus when he said, “We are to love the Lord, our God, with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength; and our neighbor and mind; and our neighbor as ourselves.”
Here are a few pictures of the Rev. Sheila Seekins recent ordination at St. John's on May 6, 2017 and her first time celebrating the Holy Eucharist on Sunday, May 7th.

Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
