Newport, RI – The Zabriskie Memorial Church of Saint John the Evangelist, located at 61 Washington Street in Newport, this week announced that they will return to in-person services and regular service times, in addition to their new outdoor “Mass on the Grass” service.
“St. John’s will hold a low Mass “Mass on the Grass” at 8 a.m. Sundays outdoors in front of the church’s main entrance at 61 Washington Street. At 10 a.m., we will celebrate a sung High Mass that can be attended in person and which is also live-streamed to Facebook and on our website,” the church said in a press release on Thursday.
In addition, St. John’s offers in-person Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer daily Monday through Friday at 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. To attend, please fill out your contact information at https://forms.gle/qrjPdMyDsTCG6KFg7.
:To attend Mass on the Grass, all you need is a chair or blanket (we’ll take care of the spacing), hat or umbrella if desired, good cheer and a smile, even if hidden behind a mask,” the church announced. “To ensure safety for all, participants must remain masked throughout all services. Although it’s OK to park in our lot opposite 25 Willow St., it’s a tight squeeze from the parking lot through to the lawn, so we ask that people avoid a bottleneck there, and walk along Willow Street and around the corner to enter the front lawn”.
