Beginning in the early hours of November 1, 2001, fire ravaged this historic church, substantially destroying the building. Undaunted by the destruction, the parishioners decided to restore the church. With financial help from friends around the world, and the skills of local craftspeople and artists, St. John's was reopened for worship on June 12, 2005.
