St. John's Episcopal Church Continuing to be Neighborhood Icon

The People for Joe Cimperman

St. John’s Episcopal Church will be hosting and involved with several more upcoming events as the summer continues to wind down. 

Recently, St. John’s participated in Ohio City’s Artisan First Fridays, which allows local merchants and others in the neighborhood a special opportunity to showcase their goods and services.  On Thursday, August 8th St. John’s hosted a special event for the Cleveland Public Theatre. 

The CPT’s Student Theatre Enrichment Program, a theatre arts program for urban teens in Cleveland presented their original play, And One Night, a re-creation of the famous ancient Arabic folk stories, One Thousand and One Nights.  This production celebrated Cleveland’s youth and their creative energy and spirit. 

In addition, on August 23, St. John’s will be hosting the launch party for Cleveland’s newest magazine, Belt.  This highly anticipated new publication will continue on the achievements of the book Rust Belt Chic: The Cleveland Anthology, and will focus on providing insightful commentary on the modern culture and progress of rust belt cities like Cleveland.                       

Other events will be coming to St. John’s this Autumn.  The historic church, once a stop on the Underground Railroad will host, in conjunction with the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, a pilgrimage weekend of social justice, prayer, and reflection focusing on the Underground Railroad.  St. John’s and the members of the pilgrimage from Cumberland, Maryland welcome all to this reflective weekend event starting on October 12 at 10am through October 13th starting at 9am and ending at 7pm.
