St. John of God is not affiliated with Ellis Medicine or Pathways Nursing Home.  We offer Mass on Sundays at the Interfaith Chapel at Ellis on a volunteer basis as part of our mission and we volunteer our Mass on Fridays at Pathways. All are welcome to attend.

St. John of God is part of the growing independent Catholic Churches in the United States. Our Cathedral Church is Holy Innocents Parish located in Halcottsville, New York. Bishop Frank Betancourt and Father Dante Tarantini are Co-Pastors of Holy Innocents. Bishop Frank is the Diocesan Bishop for the Diocese of Little Portion.

We are Catholic in our life of faith, and we are Episcopal in our Church structure.

Greetings Brothers and Sisters:
I am very happy you are looking at the website for Saint John of God.  As a new parish, we are in a time of discernment and development.  If you have been looking for a place to be a Christian where you get the classical, traditional, and valid sacraments of the church you have come to the right place. 
All followers of Jesus are welcome to join our catholic community regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, marital, or economic status.
In addition to our worship I expect that we will grow together as a community of faith and do the work of taking care of the least of these in and around the Capital District of New York.
Please call or email me if I can answer any questions, or please feel free to simply join us for Mass some Sunday at 10:30am at the Interfaith Chapel at Ellis Medicine's McClellan St. Health Center.  Many of the residents from the Ellis Nursing Home attend worship with us.
And by the way, we do not receive an offering during our worship service. 
Peace and blessings to you and yours,
Father Tony Green
