If you want to join St. John’s you can! Formal membership in an Episcopal Church is established by baptism.
If you have been baptized, all you need to do is inform the parish office of the date and place of your baptism. If you have not been baptized, the Interim Rector (i.e. Pastor), Louise Kalemkarian, would be glad to arrange for your baptism. By baptizing you or recording the information about your baptism, we will enroll you as a member. If you are already a member of another Episcopal Church, we will arrange for a letter of transfer to move your membership here. If you are coming to the Episcopal Church from another tradition, whatever record you have of your baptism will suffice. Active adult members are normally expected to 1) worship regularly, 2) support their parish’s ministries with their time, talent and treasure, 3) deepen their faith through study. This deeper, mature level of commitment to the church is celebrated sacramentally through Confirmation.
To learn more or to join St. John’s, please contact Mother Louise Kalemkarian, the Interim Rector, in person, by phone (203-239-0156) or by her email , or Jane Davis, the Parish Administrator at 203-239-0156 or by her email.
