All parishioners are invited to join us on Sunday, June 10th to celebrate our parish fellowship and the arrival of summer! The evening will begin at 4 pm with a special outdoor service of prayer and celebration in the Memorial Garden.  After the service, we will enjoy:

  • Local food trucks: Del’s Frozen Lemonade; Nona’s Ice Cream; and The Rolling Roost, offering three sliders (pulled pork, buffalo chicken and black bean veggie) and grilled cheese for the kids
     
  • The first annual Chowderfest Cooking Competition: enter your own recipe, try them all, and cast your vote for the best!
     
  • Amusement park rides for the kids, including a Ferris wheel and a carousel
     
  • Live entertainment from The One Dime Band with fun music for all ages
     
  • Hot dogs from the grill with all of the fixins
  • Beer from a local craft brewer

  • Movie and popcorn for the kids in Lower Weld Hall (supervision provided)
     
  • Soda, seltzer and water on ice (please BYO wine or other drinks as you prefer)
     
  • Plenty of quiet seating to enjoy the afternoon on our lovely campus
     
  • Shuttle service to and from the front door from Station Street parking lot

In addition to all of this fun, we gather to support BSAFE (The Bishop’s Summer Academic & Enrichment Program), an academic and enrichment summer program for kids from a number of Boston area neighborhoods that has been a long-time cause for St. Johns through our ties with St. Stephens in the South End.

This will be a celebration of St. Johns for all ages and we hope that you can join us!  It is a free event that is open to the entire parish. This will also be a great opportunity to introduce friends to St. Johns and we encourage you to invite others. Please click here to RSVP and learn more about how you can support this event.
