St. John's, Wilmot, is an Episcopal parish located in New Rochelle, convenient to Bronxville, Eastchester, and Scarsdale, as well as Larchmont, and other Sound Shore Communities, from which it draws its members. Located in an historic district of New Rochelle, near Thomas Paine Cottage, its buildings date to colonial times. St. John's was organized as an Episcopal parish in 1858, and is one of the oldest churches in Westchester County, New York. Norman Rockwell, who lived nearby, attended this church and his children were baptized here.
It is an intimate parish, drawing its parishioners not only from other Episcopal parishes, but from Roman Catholic, and other Protestant denominations, as well as other religious traditions. Following the church service, an informal coffee and tea reception is held in the adjoining St. Francis' Cottage.
St. John's Church is unique in its makeup, and the congregation is made up of varied backgrounds, ages, denominations, sexual orientations, races, countries of origin, and more. Ours is an amalgamation of the living word of Christ Jesus.
