A message from Bishop Stephen Lane:

The Diocese of Maine is beginning the work of transforming our life as the people of God in this place. To help us begin, I’ve appointed lay and clergy members from across the diocese to two groups: a Mission Priorities Study Group and Mission Strategy Study Group. If you would like to be involved you may fill out the Diocesan Mission Survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/mission or use the printed copies which are available in the church office.


Office Hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday (8:30-2:30).
