NEW CITY, N.Y. -- St. John's Episcopal Church marks its 150th anniversary this year, lohud.com reported.
Parishioners talked to lohud.com about the church off Strawtown Road that moved there from Main Street.
They were of diverse ages and backgrounds, and one person interviewed said she came from Ghana, said lohud.com.
The commonality among members is they feel the church is like a family, according to the lohud.com report.
The church was incorporated Dec. 28, 1866, when original services took place at the county courthouse, lohud.com said.
A couple of years later, the church established itself on Main and Second streets, the site of Chase Bank today, noted the lohud.com report.
In 1960, Ernest Flender made a land donation to the parish on Strawtown Road, the current home of the church, according to lohud.com.
