Dear Friends,

St. John's is a vibrant community of folks who gather on Sundays and throughout the week to carry out our mission and ministry in the city of New Rochelle and beyond.

Once purely a "local" church known as "the little church on the hill," our members now also travel from as far away as The Bronx, Queens, and Brewster, to participate in our unique way of proclaiming what we believe as Episcopalians in the Diocese of New York. And we are so fortunate to be able to proclaim and live out God's word in a beautiful chapel, parish hall, and gardens, set on six acres. Our chapel, built in 1859, has been the church home to Norman Rockwell, among other New Rochelle notables.

We are proud of our 159-year history, but we are especially proud to say that in 2018 we are an "open church" that constantly and purposefully seeks to create a warm and loving community, welcoming everyone regardless of where you might be on your spiritual journey. We hope you'll join us on Sunday mornings for worship at 10:30 a.m., for Bible Study on Tuesday evenings at 7:30, for Spiritual Discussion on Wednesdays at 12:30, and for any of our activities that are listed on our Worship & Event Schedule page. We can promise you one thing: It won't be dull!

Faithfully yours, 

Stephanie Hartwell-Mandella
and Scott Meyer, Wardens
The Rev. Jennie Talley, Rector
