At St. John's


The fifth Sunday combined worship service is scheduled for Sunday, July 29, 10:00 a.m. at St. Saviour's Parish in Bar Harbor.
Confirmation Class will be held on Tuesdays, 2:30-3:30 in the Common Room. We will be exploring the book Episcopal Questions, Episcopal Answers, Exploring Christian Faith. All are invited to join in the conversation. See Mother Kathleen for more information.

Meditation on Tuesdays at 4:00 at St. John's. Please join us for 30 minutes of shared silence and "prayer of the heart," an ancient meditative practice of the Christian tradition. All are welcome! We meditate sitting on chairs, though if you prefer to sit on the floor, feel free to bring a mat or cushion. If you are new to meditation, have questions or concerns, or would like more information, please contact Mother Kathleen.
