A diocesan retreat for adults –June 9-11 Register Now: Playing with Fire: The Parables of Jesus Join us for a weekend at Camp Bishopswood on beautiful Lake Megunticook near Camden, to enrich your heart, mind and soul. This retreat is for everyone who has wondered what Jesus had in mind when he told a parable. Moral teaching? Confounding truth? Topsy-turvey gospel? Read, pray, sing and embody the parables with others who are wondering the same things. The weekend will be hosted by Rev. Bill Blaine-Wallace, Merle Marie Troeger, Jane Hartwell and musician Thew Elliott. There is financial aid for everyone who needs it and also scholarships for Sunday school teachers and youth event volunteers. For more information, contact Jane Hartwell at email@example.com.

at St. Saviour:
Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Wednesdays at noon in the Chapel, in a simple, non-musical service. We plan to commemorate saints and seasons using the church's published calendar, as well as focusing on healing for ourselves and for the world.
Caregivers' Support Group meets in the Rectory Library from 1:15 to 2:45 pm (following the Noon Eucharist) the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. Open to the entire community!
Confidential Prayer Chain: Unlike our published prayer lists, prayer requests that come into the Prayer Chain remain private to the prayer chain itself, which will pray devotedly for one week unless an updated request is made. If you'd like to know more about this or our Pastoral Care Team, please contact our office administrators or Mother Kathleen.
