St. John’s Episcopal Church, 321 W. Chestnut Street, Lancaster, invites parishioners and the community to a quiet place for reflection amidst the “noise” of the mid-term election. The doors of the church’s sanctuary will be open on Election Eve, November 5, 5-8 p.m., and Election Day, November 6, 8 a.m.-7 p.m. for anyone desiring space for reflection, discernment, prayer or meditation. Enter by way of Chestnut Street.
In addition, the church will hold a bake sale on Election Day to benefit its Eagle’s Nest after-school program. Eagle’s Nest, held Wednesday afternoons during the school year, provides academic support and enrichment opportunities for 4th and 5th graders from the Robert Fulton Elementary School in the School District of Lancaster. Baked goods–while they last–will be available in the church’s courtyard, accessible via Mulberry Street.
Listen to The Rev. Glenn Miller talk with WGAL about the days’ activities.
