Dear Friends In Christ,

Nearly every Sunday, our Bishop, The Rt. Rev. John H. Taylor, is on the road visiting a different church community in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles to preach and celebrate with parishioners near and far. This Sunday, Bishop Taylor will be with us!

During his visit at 10am, we will baptize a little one into the household of God, commission and re-commission our Vestry, bless beautiful new green vestments given in loving memory of Louis Randall Gaines by Lurelean and Tina, and continue celebrating the Season of Creation. We hope you can join us as St. John’s community of faith, gathered in love with joyful hearts. A reception with cake and healthy fruit will follow.

Then on Thursday the 14th of September at 6:30pm, you are invited to an evening of Justice & Jazz, with the focus on environmental justice this month. The conversation will be led by Jessica Gable, Program Manager at Sunstone Strategies. Jessica is a journalist turned communications strategist who found her calling in helping communities impacted by industrial pollution fight for change and advocating for clean energy solutions. Joining her will be parishioner Richard Stauch, P.E., who is a Project Manager with Chevron for various projects including: CO2 & NOxemissions reduction. Fabulous Jazz will set the stage before and after, led by the talented Dr. Zach Neufeld and musical friends. See below for more details..

There is much to celebrate at St. John’s Cathedral, thanks to all of you. I hope to see you soon.

Much love and blessings,

Anne Sawyer

Interim Dean & Priest-in-Charge
