I grew up attending St. John's church beginning in 1973 and was confirmed here by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. I was a St. John’s acolyte and proudly served as the acolyte for Bishop Spong's ordination. Later I also served as St. John’s sexton for a time.

Years later, I now have completed two years as a Vestry member and am a member of the Property Committee. As a family we participate in many outreach activities and fellowship events.
