"Dia De Los Muertos" Family Service

We will celebrate Dia de Los Muertos (a.k.a All Hallows Eve/Halloween) on Sunday, November 3, 2019. We will have a special ofrenda (memorial altar) in the church, and use some Spanish in our liturgy. You are invited to bring photos or symbolic objects for the altar to remember loved ones, or special foods they enjoyed, as is the tradition. Kids (and grown-ups too!) are invited to wear costumes to church and enjoy special treats at coffee hour.

 

Welcome to St. John's!

St. John’s is an inclusive, progressive, authentic, and joyful community. We dare to see the world as it is, and strive to change it into the world that God would have it be.

We are glad you are visiting our web home, and invite you join us for worship and fellowship.

We are an Episcopal congregation located in beautiful Montclair, N.J. just blocks from the Walnut Street train station and shopping district. We offer two services each Sunday during the school year, at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. (one service at 9 a.m. during the summer).  Children gather for Church School prior to the main service, then join their families for Holy Communion.
