Dear Friends,

St. John's is a vibrant community of folks who gather on Sundays and throughout the week to carry out our mission and ministry in the city of New Rochelle and beyond.

Once purely a "local" church known as "the little church on the hill," our members now travel from as far away as The Bronx, Queens, and Brewster, to participate in our unique way of proclaiming what we believe as Episcopalians in the Diocese of New York. And we are so fortunate to be able to proclaim and live out God's word in a beautiful chapel and parish hall set on six acres. Our chapel, built in 1859, has been the church home to Norman Rockwell, among other New Rochelle notables.

We are proud of our 157-year history, but we are especially proud to say that in 2016 we are an "open church" that constantly and purposefully seeks to create a living community, welcoming everyone regardless of their denominational background or their faith tradition (or lack of one). We hope you'll join us on Sunday mornings 10:30 a.m., with Sunday school, or for one of our tag sales or fundraisers that are listed on our events page. We can promise you one thing: It won't be dull!

Faithfully yours,

Lanny Miller and Scott Meyer
