Community Partners

St. John’s is honored to work with and support other organizations in our community of Kingston and the larger Ulster County area. If you are looking to volunteer, please reach out to these organizations through their websites.


Angel Food East

For over 25 years, Angel Food East has been cooking delicious meals in the St. John’s Kitchen and delivering them to chronically ill and homebound neighbors in Kingston and the surrounding towns. What began as an outreach to those suffering with HIV/AIDS in the early 1990’s has grown into a vital feeding ministry in Ulster County.

St. John’s supports Angel Food East by housing this vital ministry in our building. Several parishioners are involved as board members, delivery drivers, and cooks. St. John’s also supports by collecting donations and by attending and helping at the Angel Food East annual fundraiser – the Mac-n-Cheese Bakeoff in March.


Kingston Interfaith Council

In response to the sharp divisions apparent in our society in 2017, the Kingston Interfaith Council began in the Parish Hall of St. John’s with leaders from all faiths around a table. Since then, KIC has developed as a united interfaith voice in Kingston and Ulster County, responding to issues of systemic racism, immigration, and poverty. Fostering partnerships in order to increase understanding and provide a collective moral response to the concerns of our community.

St. John’s supports the Kingston Interfaith Council as a member and hosts meetings and events in our building.


People’s Place

People’s Place is so many things to so many people: thrift store, food pantry, wellness center, community cafe, and more. Started in 1972 by a Roman Catholic organization, the programming and help they provide evolves as the needs in the community of Kingston change. Now, as their own 501C3, People’s Place is a “go to” agency for those in need.

St. John’s supports People’s Place by collecting donations for their food pantry, Project Santa, and other drives as well as donating outreach monies to support their programming.


Radio Kingston

In 1957, St. John’s sold 2 acres of land to local radio station – WKNY – so they could build their tower in our back yard. Fast forward to 2017, Radio Kingston was established as a non-commercial, community-focused radio station with programming and programs designed to support the Kingston community – audio/video support, Community Fund, and more.

St. John’s supports Radio Kingston by donating regularly to the Community Fund and by doing whatever we can to make sure their tower is always able to broadcast their signal. Radio Kingston helps St. John’s by providing free internet as well as supporting us with audio/video help when we need it.


Ulster Immigrant Defense Network (UIDN)

The mission of the Ulster Immigrant Defense Network (UIDN) is to “provide a network of safety and support to immigrants, regardless of status.” The network offers help including household needs, legal support, and transportation for people in Ulster County.

St. John’s regularly supports the work of UIDN through the collection of donations.
