The presence and ministry of The Episcopal Church in Lake County since 1877.
The Rt. Reverend Bishop Barry L. Beisner of the Diocese of Northern California will offer Holy Eucharist and preach this Sunday, January 3rd, at Saint John's Episcopal Church, Lakeport. His homily will be based on the second chapter of Matthew which tells of the Holy Family's escape into Egypt from the persecution of King Herod. Services start at 10 a.m. Bishop Barry will also bless the Father Leo M. Joseph Memorial Office, visit with the congregation and guests in Carey Hall, and meet with the Vestry. Saint John's Church welcomes both parishioners and the public to this important event.
Saint John's welcomes The Reverend Kay Rhodes who will assist us in aiding individuals and families impacted by the Rocky, Jerusalem, and Valley Fires. Gift cards, clothing, and supplies are available at Saint John's Thrift Store. The Rev. Rhodes will also coordinate efforts with the Middletown Unified School District in reaching families affected by the fires in the Middletown, Cobb, and Hidden Valley.
We are very pleased to announce that the Rev. Delia Fay has agreed to be our long-term supply priest. Mother Delia will be with us on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month and she will celebrate Palm Sunday, Easter and Pentecost with us throughout 2015 She drives from Chico to Lakeport.
