Fall Community Gatherings

Spiritual Life

Women’s Group 

First Tuesdays from 7-8:30pm in the Fireside Room and via Zoom.
In the wake of the demise of Roe and the further erosion of personal freedoms, the women’s group offers a safe space to talk and listen, or just be together. Parishioners of all genders who have or had the ability to get pregnant and/or have female reproductive systems are invited for what will be the first of many conversations. If you have questions, or want information on participating remotely, contact Mary E. Johnson.

Thursday Book Group 
Beginning September 1st, every first and third Thursday of the month from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room or on Zoom. 
St. John’s Book Group votes on books that challenge, affirm, and deepen our spiritual lives. Join us as we delve into a broad range of literary genres, including history, novels, theology, psychology, poetry, anthropology, biographies, and much, much more. Email [email protected] for more information.

Spiritual Life in the Episcopal Homes Pub 
First Wednesdays at 5pm at Watter’s Pub (Episcopal Church Homes: 1879 Feronia Avenue, St. Paul).  

Join us for fun and fellowship with St. John’s Episcopal Homes residents in the Watters Pub! We share our joys, struggles, and gratitudes as a community bound together in Christ’s love. The Watters Pub is located in Midway Village, the newest addition to the Episcopal Homes campus. The Pub serves select wines, draft beers, cheese curds, wings and more.

Prayer Shawl Knitting Group 
Second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 1pm in the Saint John’s Fireside Room.
Please join us as we knit our prayers into a garment of care for those needing prayer and comfort in and outside of our faith community. All knitting abilities are welcome, we can help teach you the stitches and you’ll have the guidance of skilled knitters and crocheters at your disposal. Saint John’s Prayer Shawls are delivered by Saint John’s Circle of Care pastoral care team and clergy to individuals recovering from illness, following the birth of a child, experiencing grief, or after a significant life transition and are a tangible reminder of the love, care, and support of this faith community.
