We are eager to write a new chapter together in our church’s long history, which through its parishioners, clergy, and faith in action ministries has been a leader locally, in the Episcopal church.

We welcome your leadership in helping us explore, expand, and exercise our faith and inviting others to join us. Our congregation is gifted with many passionate leaders. We hope the message of the Gospel informs your whole life, which enables you to serve as a guide to transformation for those that worship at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Essex. Our partnerships and ministries play a vital role in St. John’s everyday life and in our liturgical life. We are excited to celebrate this new beginning and partnership with our new rector.

We trust you are willing to explore God’s call to join us as we seek learning, service, and celebration. We look to you to lead our parish and partner with us, guiding us to deepen our faith, that we may prayerfully discern our unique capacity to further connect and serve in Essex, the Episcopal Church of Connecticut, and the wider world.

We invite you to join us on this pilgrimage.
