JESUS’ BIRTHDAY PRESENT:  The Wardens and Vestry of St. john’s invite you to contribute to a Birthday Present for Jesus to be donated to a local charity for Christmas.  Fisher House at Joint Base Andrews has been selected.  It provides a “home-away-from-home” for families of military personnel who are hospitalized in local military hospitals.  Andrew’s Fisher House, a welcoming large brick colonial surrounded by restful gardens, contains 8 private units with shared kitchen and common areas.  There is no charge to the families.  Because most staffing and administration is done by volunteers, 97% of donations goes directly into running the facility.  Envelopes will be available beginning the first Sunday of Advent, November 30th.

 A Quick Tour Through Time
The slide show (power point presentation)) given at Homecoming 2014, is now available for those who missed it, or who just want to see it again.  Email Pete and ask for either the 11.5 or the 5.5 Meg file at

The Reverend Stephen Rorke,
who began his ministry to us on 
Sunday, September 7th.

Many thanks to the Episcopal Diocese of Washington for providing us with a  home on the web.
