Outreach Easter Dinner Baskets. Last year St. Saviour's, with the assistance of the MDI Christian community, the Bar Harbor Food Pantry and Westside Food Pantry, provided Easter Dinner Baskets to more than 240 island families. This year the need to likely to be even greater. Jesus tells us: “You have been treated generously, so live generously.” With this in mind, below is a list of food items needed for this year's baskets. Bringing something with you each week can be a part of your Lenten observance. Or consider setting an extra plate at your dinner table during the season of Lent and putting aside the cost of serving your unseen guests as part of your Lenten Alms. For cash donations, please put “Easter Baskets” on the memo line of your check. Thinking about, and acting upon, the needs of others each week can be a poignant reminder of Christ's generous gift of himself to us.
Shopping list: canned ham, canned green vegetables, canned carrots, canned fruit, canned or boxed potatoes, stuffing mix, canned cranberry sauce, chicken broth, Jello, cake mix, cake frosting, chocolate bunny.

Gracious God, we offer thanks for our parish, for your inspiration, and for the spirit of ministry which is our heritage. We acknowledge your call to continue serving each other and the people in our community through open hearts and open doors. Guide us all, especially our Capital Campaign and Design & Construction Committees and Vestry, as we seek funding and plan expansion of the facilities, including accessibility for all at St. John. Inspire us to share faithfully the love that you have revealed to us through the ministry and sacrifice of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
