SERVING OTHERS

St. John's has several ministries that are

part of our ongoing outreach to the community. 

ST. JOHN'S CUPBOARD

St. John’s Cupboard was established in 2014 to help people who struggle with
food insecurities in Harford and Cecil counties. We are open Friday’s from 10am
until Noon (we are closed the Friday after Thanksgiving).

We are an approved and certified Food Cupboard. We receive food from the
Maryland Food Bank, local businesses, private farmers/gardeners, and individuals in our communities.

If you or your business would like organize a food drive and/or donate food or
money to St. John’s Cupboard please call Sheila McCutcheon or Lori Gengenbach at 410-939-2107 or email us at CupboardStJohns114@gmail.com.

Volunteer opportunities are endless…

  • Drivers to pick up excess foods from local businesses.

  • 2nd Tuesdays of the month, we need help unloading food from our large
    pickup.

  • People to help set up on Thursdays.

  • People who enjoy cooking. We give out a prepared lunch to all that come
    in.

  • People who want to regularly volunteer to hand out food on Fridays.

MOSAIC CENTER 

The Mosaic Center is here for you. We are here to make a difference in our community by providing an open, safe, inclusive, and loving space for all. We promote a culture that celebrates diversity, inclusion, and belonging for all people within our community, especially the LGBTQIA+ and Allies. The center promotes a space for self-exploration for all identities. We are a collaborative community organization that serves Havre de Grace and the surrounding regions by providing programs, resources, outreach, and advocacy.

We host a monthly dinner/activity on the last Friday of each month at the St. John's Parish Hall. 

On the second Friday of each month, we meet at Market Street Brewery in Havre de Grace for our monthly Book Club.

 

We have an annual Friendsgiving in November and White Elephant party in December!  

All are welcome to join in our dinners, activities, and book club events.

New in 2024: Mosaic HarCo Sports! Follow us on Facebook for social/non-competitive athletic gatherings.

GARDENING  TEAM

Our small (but mighty) core of dedicated garden volunteers care deeply about the grounds around St. John’s Episcopal Church. We are mindful that we are called to be good stewards of God’s creation. We hope that we can create and tend to a beautiful sanctuary that serves our community and the unique wildlife in our area. This sacred space is part of the Havre de Grace Historic District (and therefore on the National Register of Historic Places). It is Stop 17 on the Lafayette Trail.

 

We welcome community members and visitors to our property many times throughout the week: Grace Place and St. John’s Cupboard (meal and pantry ministries), AA Meetings, tourists, The Mosaic Center dinners, and Sunday services. We meet on Monday mornings from 10am-noon to take on landscaping tasks around the entire property. There will be seasonal weekend opportunities because there is always work to be done within any garden or landscape!

 

Our goals for 2024-25 (in addition to regular maintenance):

- Continue adding beneficial native pollinator plants/perennials to our spaces

- Level our lawn and reseed with clover

- Remove all English ivy, poison ivy, and Virginia Creeper to prevent further building/shrub/tree damage

- Begin a cut flower garden to create bouquets for altar flowers and arrangements for pastoral care

- Replace/repair the benches at the reflecting corner

- Share plants with our Tower neighbors for their fountain planter
