“We three kings of Orient are…”
In the style of 12th Night Revelries St. John’s presents The Epiphany Pageant this Saturday, January 6, at 5:00 p.m.
Starring…you! We need Mary, Joseph, a baby Jesus and a toddler Jesus, shepherds, kings, soldiers, well, you know! And an audience!
Come at 5 and get a costume and a script, or settle in your seat to watch, sing, and celebrate the whole story of Christmas. (This is a play, not a worship service, so there is no communion or sermon). Appropriate for children and drama queens of all ages.
At about 6 p.m. we’ll go down to the Parish Hall. St. John’s is providing pizzas (meat-eaters, vegetarians, and gluten free folks all taken care of) and drinks. If you want to bring a side dish, salad (St. John’s will also provide salad dressings) or dessert, you may, but it is not necessary.
Don’t miss this last hurrah of Christmas!
St. John’s is proud to present this beautiful book of art and reflections, taken from nine years of art created for Sunday worship by children and adults. This coffee table book makes a lovely gift.
Each book is $25, or $20 each for 2 or more.
You can purchase a book at St. John’s, or email parishoffice@stjohnschicago,com to have one sent to you (postage additional).
