Adult Education

The Adult Education program at St. John's provides a wealth of opportunity for parishioners to learn more about their church and their faith. Recent programs covered such topics as planning for the end of life, the history of monasticism and faith based response to climate change. We also have occasional introductory classes for those who are new to St. John’s and/or the Episcopal Church. And there is a book group that meets monthly in the Thayer Room to discuss topical and interesting books.

Upcoming programs will be posted here as they are scheduled.
