Our parish is comprised of the young and the old, the old-timer and the newcomer, married, divorced, partnered and single, gay and straight, rich and poor. We at Saint John’s are a small and proud part of the wonderful diversity that makes the Sharon area what it is.  We celebrate the baptismal command to respect the dignity of every human being.  We strive to show radical hospitality to everyone and believe every person is a beloved child of God.
