New Proud Parish Partner: St. John's in Montclair, N.J.

Another day, another new Proud Parish Partner!  Today we welcome St. John's Episcopal Church in Montclair, N.J., part of the Diocese of Newark.  St. John's has been participating in Believe Out Loud, and is home to a P-FLAG chapter, but LGBT equality is only part of their efforts towards social justice and radical hospitality.  They also hold a special Eucharist twice monthly which is especially geared towards children, especially those with special needs, for whom a typical Eucharist is not ideal.  They have also done extensive work for the disadvantaged, and held an interfaith prayer service with a Muslim group to foster greater mutual understanding and respect.

We will be adding St. John's to our website and blog and their service schedule will be included in our upcoming guide of welcoming places to observe Holy Week and Easter.  There's still time to register as a P3 and get your congregation included, too!

Thanks to The Rev. Andrew Butler, and the vestry and wardens for your support!
