Vigil led by Trinity’s working group on behalf of persecuted Christians in the Middle East on Thursday, September 11, from 8 am to 8 pm, in the chapel. Coptic Christians in Egypt are increasingly under attack by Islamist militants, and Christians in Iraq and Syria are being driven from their homes by the tens of thousands by the group calling itself the Islamic State, These ancient Christian bodies, some tracing their founding to the time of the Apostles, some still worshipping in Aramaic, the language of Jesus, are in great peril; they need our prayers. To participate, sign up on the sheet in the narthex of contact the church office.

O Eternal God, the foundation of all wisdom and the source of all courage: Enlighten with your grace the Wardens and Vestry of this congregation, and so rule their minds, and guide their counsels, that in all things they may seek your glory and promote the mission of your Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

St. John’s Worthington invites you to hear jazz vocalist Dwight Lenox

Sunday, September 28 at 3:00 p.m.

From blues to ballads and jazz to swing, Dwight Lenox shines. His impeccable instincts and mellow sound have garnered the attention of some of the finest musicians in the industry. Dwight's fluid style lends itself to a vast repertoire, from Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra to James Ingram, Stevie Wonder, Lou Rawls, and many more.  There is no charge for admission; a freewill offering will be taken to support the Music Series. St. John’s is located at 700 High Street in Worthington, on the southeast corner of the Olde Worthington Village Green (High Street at SR 161). Visit for more information.


We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time –Jayla Kennedy, Josh McKinney, Judy McKissick, B. J. Artrup, Steve Pogson, Sharon Whaley,   Deb McHugh,  Jon Nusbaum,  Marjorie Dotson, Hal Duryee, Michael McKinley, Bob Park and others whom we name silently or aloud.
We pray for Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Cynthia Epler, Jordan Sellman, Matt Schumann, Commander Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
We remember all who work for peace around the world, especially in Gaza, Iraq and the Ukraine.  We pray for all suffering with the Ebola Virus in Liberia and the greater West African region.
We pray for all Christians and persons of other faiths throughout the world who are persecuted on account of their faith and especially for those Christians at Mar Youhanan the Baptist Chaldean Catholic Church in Dura, Iraq.
Remembering our Neighbors on the Border, we pray: Lord Jesus Christ, beloved son of God, whose parents fled with you across the border of a foreign land where you might live, we pray to you for the immigrant children.  Give consolation to those who are in detention centers awaiting their future.  Give hope to their families beyond the borders, as they wait for news of the destiny of their children.  Inspire legislative leaders to develop wise and clear policies in the midst of a complex reality.  And teach us to follow your example of caring for the neighbor in concrete forms, as you did with the persons most vulnerable among us.  All this we ask, because of your great love.
We renew our commitments to serve the poorest in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In the Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
