YONKERS, N.Y. -- St. John's Church in Yonkers is hosting a musical program, "Drinking Deeply from the Well," with beautiful music, sung by a professional quartet, and special talks to ancient insights relevant to restore your spirit at 10:15 a.m. Sunday and each Sunday through May 24.

The talks, “Spirituality When Religion Fails,” will share insights for both those who are and those who are not religious. The intent is to provide something meaningful for these and all modern people.

Noticing an absence of opportunities to hear a classical sacred repertory in Yonkers, Stephen Byrns, founder of the Untermeyer Gardens Conservancy, had the idea of bringing a professional vocal quartet to the church he had long admired in his capacity as an architect.

The historic church itself, which includes large parts of the original Colonial 1752 structure, is a beautiful setting for beautiful music.  The congregation is the oldest spiritual community in Yonkers, and in 1684 it began a long record of service to the community, including the foundation of Saint John’s Hospital and outreach programs to the homeless still in operation.

St. John's Church is located at 1 Hudson Street at the intersection of South Broadway. The church has parking and is handicapped accessible.

For more information, call the church at (914) 963-3033 or write parish@yonkerschurch.org or visit the website www.yonkerschurch.org.
