Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

From the Tent of Meeting

As renovations continued at the Monastery and Guesthouse in the fall of 2010 the Brothers were delighted to have been able to resume Sunday Eucharist from a tent in the Guesthouse garden.

In this four-sermon series, the Brothers pondered how God meets us and finds us in the places we worship, as well as how we are invited to worship God at all times and in all places.
