St. John's Episcopal Church


January 17, 2018

Dear St. John’s Parishoners:

When the temperature dips below 0 degrees in St. Louis, as it has several days this week, it always spurs my thought process to think of the coming summer in Harbor Springs!  To that end, listed below you will find our roster of visiting priests for the 2018 Summer Season.  We have a team of first time visitors from Louisville in the person of Father Tim Mitchell, the rector of the Church of the Advent, and his Associate, Father John Fritschner, who will preside on July 8, 2018 due to a long standing obligation of Father Tim, who will be with us on July 15, and July 22, 2018.  Father Tim Mitchell comes highly recommended by Terry Harrison and Al Shands and is known, I am sure, by many Louisvilleians.

Also returning is the Reverend Calhoun Wick.  Cal last visited St. John’s in the summer of 2014, and we are thrilled to have him return for the first three weeks of the 2018 season.

Service Times:

Sundays from June 17th – September 2nd

  • 8:30 am – Rite One
  • 10:30 am – Rite Two

We are also very excited to welcome back Peter D. Sims whose first year as Organist and Choirmaster was an unqualified success.  We received many, many written and verbal expressions of appreciation for Peter’s work and skills!

As I’m sure you remember, the 2017 St. John’s Community Fund was the most successful in our 33 year history and we are grateful for such record support.

At the moment, we have no weddings or christenings scheduled for next summer but that could change.

Please remember our website at where much useful information can be accessed.

We also received a most generous gift from the Estate of Frances Gluck, which was received in December 2017, and for which we are most grateful.

Also, please direct any comments or questions to my attention at (314) 736-5505. 
My email is monitored daily by my Executive Assistant, Patty Ream, and she is very familiar with St. John’s affairs.

With kind regards,

J. Hord Armstrong, III
Senior Warden
