The Endowment of St. John in the Wilderness
Reflecting God's Love, Today and into the Future
Think about it: In the nearly two hundred years since our beginning as the Baring family chapel, St. John in the Wilderness has withstood wars, economic depressions, cultural upheavals, and even pandemics. By the grace of God, we have not merely endured--we have prospered. Our Parish continues to nourish the souls of members and minister both within our congregation and to the world outside.
We have endured much. And we need to be sufficiently prepared to endure--and thrive--through whatever the future may bring.
As a community of faith, we are called to meet challenges of all kinds. We must ensure that our financial health remains robust enough not only to carry us through whatever trials may arise, but also to allow our ministries to continue to thrive.
Our Endowment Fund is an important element that supports our Parish's financial needs. It was created in 1986 to receive gifts, large and small, which are then invested to provide perpetual support to the work of our Parish.
