A statement from the Vestry of St. John the Divine –
After prolonged and diligent study, the Vestry of St. John the Divine has concluded that our parish’s two campus system can be sustained no longer. Planning should begin immediately to determine how best to bring about a prudent and orderly termination of our use of the Ruskin property, consistent with the parish’s existing financial obligations and other responsibilities, including entertaining offers from other sources to enable the Lord’s Lighthouse to continue it service programs.
A transition away from two campuses, to a single campus in Sun City Center, is based on an examination of the Parish’s immediate and future needs and prospects, as well as the conviction that this change will not diminish but enhance the mission and vision of the Lord’s Lighthouse and St. John the Divine.
Now, you can make one-time-only or regularly scheduled donations to St. John the Divine, automatically through this website. No more checks, envelopes, stamps or forgotten payments. For full details on how the program works and its benefits to you individually and to the parish, go to the Menu Bar above and click on ONLINE GIVING.
Epiphany Evensong —the music of evening prayer –will be held today, Jan. 5, at 5:00 p.m. at our Sun City Center campus.
