Current and Upcoming Outings and Events
Adult Formation at St John’s Episcopal Church
Sundays at 10:00 AM – Starting January 20, 2019
The Book of Common Prayer defines the Sacraments as the “outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as
sure and certain means by which we receive that grace.” In this series we will number and examine each of the Church’s sacraments in the
context of this pithy definition. Join us!
In the class-obsessed and religiously divided United Kingdom of the early 1920s, two determined young runners train for the 1924 Paris
Olympics. Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson), a devout Christian born to Scottish missionaries in China, sees running as part of his worship of God’s glory and refuses to train or compete on the Sabbath. Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross) overcomes antiSemitism and class bias, but
neglects his beloved sweetheart Sybil (Alice Krige) in his single-minded quest. Nominated for seven Academy Awards and winning four,
including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. It is ranked 19th in the list of Top 100 British films, the film is also notable for its memorable electronic theme tune by Vangelis.

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.
