    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

  • | NATL - National Holidays
    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.

  • | NATL - Seasonal
    - In 2016 we add one day, February 29th, to bring our calendar more nearly into accord with the seasons. Under the Julian calendar of 46 BC every forth year was a leap year, on the assumption that it took Earth 365.25 days to orbit the sun. However, Earth's orbit period is actually 365.24219 days. For more than 1,600 years the Julian calendar was used, the calendar got out of sync with the seasons. The Gregorian calendar made just one small change: a leap day is added to the calendar every four years except for century years that are not exactly divisible by 400. Traditionally leap year is a time during which women may propose marriage to men.

    - On Saturday March 26, 2016 at 630 PM., Saint John’s Church in the Wilderness Episcopal Church will be hosting our annual Easter Vigil service. Located at 100 St. Johns Road, Stony Point NY 10980.

If you have any questions regarding this service please call 8457860366 or email stjohnschurchinthewilderness@gmail.com

    Saint Johns was formed by Margaret Zimmerman, who purchased the 250 acre plot that St. Johns now stands on as a memorial to her late husband, who passed away in their honeymoon. On June 23, 1880, the cornerstone was laid, and the church officially named for its patron saint “St. John The Evangelist” under the auspices of the Rev. Henry C. Potter, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York. Timely religious sentimental articles were sealed within the cornerstone. Encased in the granite are: three coins to mark the year, Wayne’s Centennial Medal, a copy of the Centennial Bible, a church hymnal, “The Churchman” of June 19, 1880, a New York Herald of June 23, 1880, a report of the House of the Good Shepherd, the Rockland County Messenger of June 10, 1880, a photographic likeness of the “Founder” and her late husband. Lastly, a silver plate was placed on top with the inscription “To the glory of God, and in memory of John Edward Zimmerman, this church of St. John the Evangelist is erected by his wife Margaret Elizabeth Zimmerman, nee Furniss. Cornerstone laid June 23, 1880.” A visit to St. John’s is a walk through another place in time.

    Saint Johns in the Wilderness Episcopal Church is located at 100 St. Johns Road, Stony Point NY. We have regular services every Sunday at 12:30 PM. All are welcome. Visit http://www.stjohnsinthewilderness.com or call 845-786-0366 for information on other events, membership and services.
