Sandstone Society

St. John's Church was recognized in 2015 as a building of importance by the Medina Sandstone Society. The church is on the historical register of the village. In May, 2018 the first tour of Medina Sandstone buildings was held and St. John's was included in the tour.

Linen Closet Receives Appreciation 

Genesee Orleans Ministry of Concern would like to thank St John’s Episcopal Church Linen Closet in Medina for the consistent generosity of gifts in the 2017-2018 year. We received several deliveries of sheets and blankets of all sizes as well as various personal care items throughout the year which aided in assisting the many families in Orleans County in need. The winter seasons are very tough on many families and they struggle to stay warm; the gift of a blanket for each family member gives them warmth and a feeling of well being during these times. The families who receive the sheets and blankets are appreciative and very grateful. Genesee Orleans Ministry of Concern is proud to offer this service to the many clients and their families; thank you St John’s Episcopal Church Linen Closet.  Additional funding for the Linen Closet was provided through the Eucharist collection at the annual Episcopal Diocesan Convention to support the purchase of blankets and linens as needed, augmenting the generous supply of donated linens.
