At St. John the Divine, you will find an Easter service that's right for you! From traditional worship in a church decked with beautiful flowers with triumphant music led by the St. John’s Chorale, grand Létourneau organ, brass ensemble, and timpani, to modern worship with music led by the SJD Worship Band and special services planned with young families in mind, you will find a welcome place with our church family this Easter!
