Welcome!

St. John's is the downtown Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colorado. We are an inclusive, Christ-centered community reaching out to all who are seeking a deeper spirituality and relationship with God and one another. Our congregation is made up of people of every generation who come from a wide variety of backgrounds - families, children and youth are rapidly growing in numbers. We are formed and strengthened through a variety of worship services, traditional music, contemplative prayer, spiritual and social justice formation programs, as well as meaningful service within the parish, the local community and in the larger world.

Coming - Matthew Fox Seminarmatthew fox

St. John's is pleased to welcome back Matthew Fox, internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher, author of over 30 books, and Episcopal priest who passionately promotes mysticism, social justice, and emerging support for young adults.  Matthew and friends are offering a day retreat on Saturday, August 16, from 9 am until 4:30 pm in the parish hall located on the corner of 15th and Pine St.  The focus is on "Meister Eckhart and the Beguines," which emphasize building compassionate communities.  From 7 until 9:30 pm  an interactive evening of intimate conversation will engage persons, especially young adults, in sharing emerging new ways of expressing divine yearnings.  There also will be music and movement.  Refer to this flyer for more details.  To register contact the website www.wholeheartedpartners.org .

We'll be using a Vacation Bible School curriculum (Under the Sun) that focuses on service to others. The program will be led and powered by parent volunteers, and will start June 1st. There will be songs, stories, service projects, snacks, and LOTS of fun. There is no need to register -- although there will be a detailed sign-in sheet to complete when dropping off your child(ren).

Summer Evensong candleflame

Contemplative Evensong will continue through June and July on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. in the chapel.  This is possible because the chapel is cooler thanks to the air conditioning installed last year.  The evensong service offers respite from the cares of a busy and hectic week with elements of traditional evensong and contemplative prayer.  Please join us!
