Daughters of the King will hold a “welcome newcomers” event on Saturday, May 21 at 3pm in the Parish Hall. This is open to everyone, especially those new to St. John’s in the past two years.

The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial, coordinated by the Global Network of People living with HIV is one of the world’s oldest and largest grassroots mobilization campaigns for HIV awareness in the world.

St. John’s Episcopal Church is proud to again be partaking in the annual FAST gathering on Monday, April 18th at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

St. John’s Family Picnic will follow Mass on the Grass family service.

One in five residents of Pinellas County go hungry every day, many of them children. In an effort to help alleviate this need, Meals of Hope Clearwater will hold its fourth annual food pack from 9 to 11 am Saturday April 2 at the Religious Community Services food bank warehouse, 700 Druid Road, Clearwater, FL 33756.

MOH Clearwater is a collaboration of six Episcopal churches in the Clearwater deanery that works with other community organizations to put on the food pack. Using an assembly-line system developed by Naples-based Meals of Hope (meals-of-hope.org), and gathering together hundreds of volunteers of all ages, the pack will yield more than 80,000 servings of mac and cheese in just a few hours to music by a DJ. Each meal packet contains 12 grams of protein and 21 vitamins and minerals and has a long shelf life. The packets are distributed by RCS, which operates the county’s largest food bank.

The need is great. More than 50% of students in the Pinellas public schools participate in the free and reduced-cost breakfast and lunch programs, a reflection of the scope of food insecurity in the county.

Saturday evening spaghetti dinner fundraiser will take place in the Parish Hall on April 9th. Bring the family and your appetite. Adults only $10.00 and children under 12 feast for $5.00. All proceeds go to our 50th anniversary celebration…mangiare! mangiare!

Palm Sunday family service begins at 10am on Sunday March 20th. Following the service in the parish hall the Fellowship Ministry will present a Biblical Festival with foods that might have been eaten during Jesus’ life on earth.

Easter Family service celebration begins at 10am on Sunday March 27th.
