I first worshiped at St. John’s in the summer of 2012. I was immediately drawn to the beautiful services, diversity of the parish and the warm welcome provided by the congregation. In addition to worship, joining both the Finance and Vestry Committees, has provided me a better understanding of the ongoing needs of the parish community.
Upon completing my military service, I decided to continue my education at Suffolk University in Boston where I resided for nearly 30 years. Originally from the Caribbean, I returned to my birthplace for several years. It afforded me the opportunity to restrengthen family and childhood ties I did not want to lose. I eventually relocated back to New England where I decided to settle and eventually retire in Maine.
Becoming an active participant of St. John’s has definitely raised my spiritual awareness and provided a welcoming home for my Christian faith.
