   Thank you for visiting our website!  St. John’s Episcopal Church is an historical place of worship in the center of downtown Johnstown, New York.   Our Sunday Holy Eucharistic is celebrated at 8:00 am and 10:00 am by our Rector, The Rev. Laurie Garramone.  The 10:00 am service includes organ music, hymns and an anthem by the St. John’s Adult Choir. Sunday school is held during the 10:00 am service. [Note that the choir and Sunday school are on vacation during the summer months]  An informal coffee hour follows the 10:00 am service every Sunday.

  • Sunday, January 13th - We're back home!

    We are back in St. John's for both services!!! The heat is on!

  • Boiler Update--January 2, 2019

    As many of you know. the boiler in St. John's abruptly breathed its last breath of heat during the first week of December, requiring us to move all our services, including our Christmas Eve services, for the past month. We have been diligently working towards a solution that makes the most economic and practical sense to the congregation and the church, and we have made important decisions to move forward.

    We need to thank those who are sending donations. People in our congregation and community have generously sent checks to help defray the costs of the nearly $40K repairs we need to make.

    We also need to thank our 'Diesel Volunteer Coorps'. Several families have volunteered to get the diesel fuel needed to keep the temp heating unit in the church working. The unit uses about 15-20 gallons of diesel a day. 

    And we need to thank our sexton, Jim D'Amore, who works tirelessly in difficult circumstances to keep the church in order, even though we have not had any heat. 

    Please keep praying for St. John's and for all churches in our community. Even with adequate heat, ministry and worship are always hard work, although always worthwhile.

    With prayers for deeper peace and stronger faith in the New Year--Mother Laurie

  • Blessed 2019!

    A prayer for the New Year from Guideposts magazine:

    May the Lord make my New Year a happy one.

    Not by shielding me from sorrow and pain, but by strengthening me to bear it if it comes.

    Not by making my path easy, but by making me sturdy enough to tread any path.

    Not by taking hardship from me, but by taking all cowardice and fear from my heart as I meet hardships.

    Not by granting me unbroken sunshine, but by keeping my face bright even in the shadows.

    Not by making my life always pleasant, but by showing me where men and His cause need me most and by making me zealous to be there and help....

    God, make my year a happy one.
