Church can be about many things. Here at St. John's it is about the three essentials of a healthy spiritual life: faith, family, and friends. For more than 170 years, the people of St. John's have experienced the power of faith to transform, the love of family to heal, and the camaraderie of friends to restore.
Today we continue to be such a parish, as multi-generational Staten Islanders gather with those newly arrived to the Island—whether from a neighboring borough, across the country, or across the globe.
St. John's is a thriving international parish that grows week by week as more and more people discover for themselves the essentials of a healthy, vibrant spiritual life.
Perhaps this is just the kind of parish you are looking for. Come and see for yourself if this is the place where your faith can grow, your family can thrive, and new friendships can be made.

Dedication of the Marian Triptych
Sunday, August 3 at 10:00 a.m. Mass
Over two years ago St. John’s commissioned a large triptych of the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the Lady Chapel from the noted Iconographer and Staten Island priest, Fr. John Walsted. At the time, no one knew it would be Fr. Walsted’s final work. St. John’s is privileged to be able to honor the great legacy of Fr. Walsted to Staten Island and to all those whom he touched by his life of artistry, service, and devotion.
The Marian Triptych comprises a number of scenes from the life of St. Mary the Virgin: the Icon of the Theotokos (Greek for “God-Bearer”); the Icon of the Visitation, when the Virgin Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth; the Icon of the Nativity, commemorating the birth of our Lord; the Icon of the Presentation when our Lord was presented in the Temple; the Icon of the Dormition of St. Mary when she was assumed into heaven so as to never face the corruption of death; the Icon of the Crucifixion; the Icon of the Visitation; and the Icon of the Nativity.
