Our Parish Welcomes You!
St. Sarah’s serves the Greater Boston area as a parish of the Apostolic Johannite Church. Our community is named for St. Sarah the Egyptian, whose devotion to others reflects the core Johannite principle of reverencing the spark of divinity–the Sacred Flame–present in every Being.
We affirm the Seven Sacraments of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, which act with the Holy Spirit and the Sacred Flame within us to promote unity with the Divine. Our work together celebrates the inner knowledge of the Divine Mysteries, which is called “gnosis” in Greek. We seek this individual and direct experience of the Divine through the Sacraments and fellowship, service to our community, meditation and prayer, lively discussion and study.
We meet on the second Saturday of every month at 5:00 pm at the Theosophical Society in Arlington, Massachusetts. We welcome anyone interested in pursuing a personal spiritual journey in community with others. Because we see the Sacred Flame to be present in all people, each of the Seven Sacraments is open to everyone. We are a vibrant and diverse community, bonded by shared ritual practice, study, and mutual loving regard.
Peace to you in the light of gnosis, and the warmest of welcomes to our parish.
