The Royal Wedding Watch Party & Breakfast
Saturday, May 19
6AM – 8 AM // Parish Hall
In case your invitation to Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding was lost in the Post, St John’s is inviting you to join us at the Parish Hall at St John’s on Saturday morning, 19 May, beginning at 6:00AM to watch the television coverage on our projection screen.
Fr Patrick will serve an English breakfast of eggs, bangers, grilled tomatoes (he insists we pronounce them toe-MAH-toes for that morning) and toast along with tea, juice, and mimosas to celebrate the lovely, royal couple! Bagels, pastries, and coffee will be provided for the colonials to enjoy!
For the committed Anglophile, or any early risers, it should be a delightful way to start your Saturday.
The wedding starts 7:00 AM EDT, ending by 8:00, so don’t sleep in!
Top hats, morning coats, and fascinators optional!

Day Trip to The Met Cloisters
Our very own Fr. W. Patrick Edwards provided commentary on medieval church history and its significance as friends of St. John’s Episcopal Church toured The Met Cloisters. The Met Cloisters is the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art dedicated to the art, architecture, and gardens of medieval Europe. Opened to the public in 1938, and deriving its name from the five medieval cloisters that form the core of the building, it presents a harmonious and evocative setting for more than 2,000 exceptional works of art and architectural elements from the medieval West.
Along with strolling through the gardens, we took in paintings, tapestries, chapels, carvings and halls designed for different periods. While the Late Gothic Hall showcases 15th-century limestone windows and altarpieces from Germany, Italy and Spain, the Romanesque Hall features stone portals from 12th and 13th-century French churches. Lunch was enjoyed over the impressive views of the Hudson River from The Cloisters hilltop setting.
