Our Traditions

April

Christ is Alive! Let Christians sing,
His cross stands empty to the sky.
Set streets and homes with praises ring.
His love in death shall never die.
The hymns of the church speak so eloquently of the faith that believes. Death and destruction are never the last words. Alleluia!
The people of St. John Baptist welcome you to share with the joy and beauty of Easter. Those services are described in detail elsewhere in this web page. We look forward to welcoming you.
Holy Days in April include:

The Sundays of Easter. Easter is not just a day, but is an entire season, reminding us that Jesus walked with his apostles after his death before he ascended to the Father. You will see in the church a prominent display of a candle (the Paschal Candle) reminding us that Jesus continues to walk with each of us through life.

 St. Mark the Evangelist, the writer of the first gospel. April 25.
In addition to Sunday worship, consider adding our weekday gatherings about the altar in the Lady Chapel (behind the main altar at the east end of the church). Here, we remember the saints of history at morning prayer on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 9 a.m., and at a said service of Holy Eucharist on Tuesdays at 9:20 a.m. The main door to the church is usually open on weekday mornings. You are welcome to enter by that door when open.
