Rector’s Good Friday Sermon
Our rector’s Good Friday sermon was featured on the BBC Radio Manchester Sunday Breakfast show, hosted by Mike Shaft on Sunday, April 25th. Gini tackles systemic racism and the murder of George Floyd while addressing one of the fundamental questions of our faith: What could possibly be good about Good Friday?

Trinity Sunday Sermon – June 7, 2020
This is the Rev. Gini Gerbasi’s first sermon after the events of June 1, 2020 when she was driven off of the patio of St. John’s, Lafayette Square by police. Click here for an article she wrote in the Washington Post about the event.
We are also still praying, and we are here to pray for and with you. During this time of community anxiety and concern, know that our prayers are with you, and that God is in this. If you would like to send in a prayer request, click here, or on the “Prayer Request” image and we will get our prayer team on it! And if you need some help or support, please feel free to call the office, and our phone system will patch you through to one of us.
We still want to help you engage with the big stories of our faith which can help you find meaning and insight in these stressful times. One of our tools is our podcast, The Irreverends, where we dig into the Bible readings for the coming Sunday. Episodes are about 30 minutes long, and are usually posted on Thursdays. To listen to the Irreverends, click here (or any time you see our logo).
Helping others is another great way to engage with your faith and with the community. St. Theresa of Avila reminds us that God has no hands on earth now but our’s. Click here or the button below to connect with folks who can help connect what you have to offer with what others might need!
Join us every Sunday morning for a family-style service at 9am, or a more formal service with full choir at 11am.

After joining our parish, St.John’s guided and inspired me to become more involved with organizations serving our community.
St. John’s has made me feel welcome from the moment I set foot inside. I am so blessed to have found such an amazing new church home since my move to the DC area!
