PARISH WEEKEND AWAY 2018
Hiking trails, pool, tree swing, simple but well-appointed rooms, lots of free space for kids to roam, campfire and amazing food! Join us at The Bishop’s Ranch in the Sonoma wine country for St. John’s Parish Weekend. This year we’ll gather from Friday, 9/8 to Sunday, 9/10 for two days and two nights of fellowship, fun, rest, and spiritual development. Friday evening begins with a pot luck picnic on the on the lawn and the weekend closes with a worship service Sunday morning. The staff and clergy of St John’s provide activities and program for all ages: some of which are age-specific, and some inter-generational. There’s also plenty of free time.
