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 undercroft.


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


The 8th Annual Oscar Night will be held on Sunday March 7th beginning at 7 pm at Reel Pizza. This year the proceeds will benefit The Bar Harbor Food Pantry.  The Academy Awards show will be projected on the two big screens.  The $20 tickets price will include appetizers provided by local restaurants and caterers, complimentary champagne, and a chance to win prizes.  There will be prizes for the best dressed man and woman, the best costume and the grand prize will go to the person who picks the most winners in the Pick The Oscar Winner contest.  Doors open at 6:30.  It’s a great time to dust off your tuxedo and pull that ball gown out of mothballs.
