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

: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”.

To attend either of these services, please register at and fill out your contact information at
