A Note from Fr. Humphrey 

Fr. Humphrey and his family are away at the Episcopal Conference Center's Family Camp this week. We welcome the return of Fr. Milton Cheney, our former Priest-in-Charge, as celebrant and preacher.

The Secret Garden Tour is here, as is our annual tradition of selling bag lunches on Saturday and Sunday. These delicious lunches are only $7.50 each. They include your choice of a roast beef, ham, or chicken salad sandwich (all homemade), chips, fruit, cookies, and soda or water.

Do you have a freer schedule this summer? Consider joining us for Morning Prayer (8:30) or Evening Prayer (5:30) during the week. These brief services are a wonderful way to start and/or end the day.

Want to get more involved at St. John's? There's plenty to do outside and inside St. John's. If you'd like to become more active than you already are, please reach out to Fr. Humphrey at vicar@saintjohns-newport.org.
Need a visit? Please be in touch with Deacon Close at deacon@saintjohns-newport.org and he or Fr. Humphrey will be in touch.

Music on the Lawn will be returning soon. If you would like to lend a helping hand, be in touch with Scott Nicholson at gramer890@gmail.com. This is a great opportunity for neighbors to get together.

Bach and Friends at Quarter Till returns June 13 through September 6: Saturdays at 11:45 am and 2:45 pm; Sundays at 2:45 pm, 5:45 pm, and 8:45 pm. Fifteen-minute concerts/mini-demonstrations with organ music of J. S. Bach and another composer at each program. Admission 25 cents (put a quarter in the "Quarter Till"), or any amount you wish. With new video technology made possible by a grant received from the New York City American Guild of Organists Centennial Millennium Fund. Last summer, 110 of these mini-concerts raised over $11,000 to begin restoration of our historic 1894 Hook and Hastings instrument.
