Dear St. John's Parishoners,
I'm not sure why I always seem to get to this letter during the week before the Super Bowl, but at any rate here goesI listed below is the schedule of priests who will be visiting St.John's during the 2017 Summer Season. We have no first time visitors this year, and at the moment, a wedding is being planned for Saturday, August 26, 2017 during the late afternoon.

St. John's celebrates Holy Communion every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. The 2017 summer schedule will begin on Sunday, June 18, 2017, and conclude on Sunday, September 3, 2017. All services are celebrated by a series of visiting priests from throughout the United States.

As you may remember, last year's St. John's 2016 Community Fund was the most successful in our 32 year history and we are all grateful for such record support!

We also are very pleased to welcome Peter D. Sims as Organist and Choirmaster. Peter Sims retired in that capacity at the First Presbyterian Church in Harbor Springs after 16 years. We know you will enjoy getting to know the very talented Peter Sims.

The seamless transition of the care of the Jeanne McCoy Garden from Bunny Armstrong to Carol Smith and Gayle Everest was a pleasure to enjoy and appreciate.  Also, a special word of thanks to Gayle and Chip Everest for the installation of the evergreen wall which borders the handicap walkway to the east of the church.

Also, please direct any comments or questions to my attention at (314) 721-8202. My email,, is monitored daily by my Executive Assistant, Patty Ream, and she is very familiar with St. John's affairs.

To arrange for altar flowers to be given in honor or memory of loved ones, please contact Joan Keller at either (231) 526- 5426 or 404-351-1211.
