Our parish is named after a modern saint, Saint John the Wonderworker, who was known for his great love for others, especially his love for orphaned children. St. John’s Troparion says that he gave hope to the hopeless, and giving hope is close to the heart of our parish. All of us need the hope that can only come from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Through prayer and outreaches such as the Loaves and Fishes program which feeds the homeless, St. Nicholas Academy, our bookstore, our choir, and other ministries, we care for each other and the needy around us. Our parish is a loving, growing, Orthodox community where we strive together towards the greatest hope of all, Christ.
St. John's was the first parish to be named after St. John the Wonderworker, but has also been greatly impacted by our first priest, the Archpriest Jacob Myers who reposed in January of 2013. Under his leadership, Saint John’s became a parish known for prayers, hospitality and ministry to others. Many converts have come into the faith and the parish continues to grow under our church's new Rector, Fr Tom Alessandroni. The parish is actively involved in Pan Orthodox activities and ministries. Our parish has many converts to the faith as well as members from a variety of international backgrounds.
