St John’s Episcopal Church has long been a presence in Townsend, Montana.  Our building, which just celebrated its 100th birthday, is located at 314 N Cedar St.

Unfortunately, in recent years St John’s has dwindled to a faithful few.  With the recent hiring of a new priest, St John’s is looking for a new and exciting future.

Join us Sunday mornings at 11:30 for worship!

St John’s is Closing

Sadly, St John’s has come to a point where the responsible thing to do is close.  We are in the middle of working with the Diocese to determine how this will work.  As we learn anything concrete we will share that information in responsible and caring ways.

At present we continue to meet at 11:30am on Sundays  to celebrate Eucharist.  All are welcome.

Celebration of a New Ministry

I am delighted to announce that this has been scheduled for:

March 28th, 4pm, St John’s Townsend (314 N Cedar)

This service, which is often called an installation, is in the Book of Common Prayer on page 559.  It offers us the chance to solemnize our relationship as priest and congregation and to celebrate the work we will do together.  The Bishop will preside.
