Yard Sale: Come join us at the Second Annual Indoor/Outdoor Yard Sale at St. Andrew’s on Friday June 12 and Saturday June 13 from 8:00-3:00.  We have an exceptional array of wonderful treasures: kitchenware, gardening equipment, furniture, housewares and many other treats.  We can guarantee that there are fine items that you never knew you needed. You may even find something you regretted donating and want to buy back.  

If you would like to help organize and set up or work the days of the sale, please let me know. It will take many hands to make the Yard Sale a success.  It is also a lot fun!

Annual Meeting, Part Two, June 14, 11:15 a.m.

At an official Parish Meeting on August 25, 2014, we passed two resolutions amending our Bylaws to move our Annual Parish Meeting from January to June, and allow seasonal members voting rights at that meeting, and to allow seasonal Vestry members voting rights on the Vestry. Since any change to the Bylaws requires passage by a majority of those present at two successive Parish Meetings, we took these resolutions up at our regularly scheduled Parish Meeting on January 11, 2015. After hearing reports on ministries and on the budget, we voted on these two resolutions.  The meeting then went into recess and will reconvene on Sunday, June 14, 2015 for Part Two of the Annual Meeting. At this meeting we will conduct elections and all other business.  Reports from the various guilds, officers, etc. are due June 8.



St. Saviour:

Contemplative Prayer Group meets for one hour at noon on Fridays to pray together in silence and to share resources and experiences from their prayer journeys. The hour will begin with gathering in silence, then the leader will share a resource or an insight about contemplative prayer, then there will be a time of silent prayer, and finally a short time to share our thoughts and experiences in group discussion. Everyone is invited to come to this group.


American Guild of Organists Recital.  On Sunday, May 31 at 4 pm, the Bangor Chapter of the American Guild of Organists will hold a Recital by its members at St. Saviour's Episcopal Church in Bar Harbor.  Works for organ solo, organ duet, and organ plus harp and 'cello will be featured on the church's colorful Visser-Rowland tracker organ. The public is welcome and the recital is free of charge, although donations to benefit the chapter's scholarship fund will be accepted.


Church of Our Father:

Wondering what to do with your used clothes? The ECW is now accepting donations for the Thrift Shop. Please donate your gently used clothing. You can place your donation under the tables by the door in the Parish Hall.


Thursday evening Bible Study June 4 –September 10 at 7 pm. We will use the study titled “The Bible in 90 days”. There is a participant’s guide which will help to keep the group on track. Please let Mother Sue know if you are interested in this class, so she knows how many books to order.


St. Mary & St. Jude:

Prayer Shawl Ministry: 10:00 a.m. on Thursdays.


MDI Episcopal Churches:

Men's Bible Study Group meets on a monthly basis. The group focuses on selected Bible readings and discusses how these passages affect our lives and our relationships with others.

St. Andrew & St. John and St. Saviour

Welcomes new Curate

the Rev. Kathleen E. Killian

Kathleen+ is a cradle Episcopalian originally from Miami, Florida.  Her first professional training is in dance, and she has had careers as a professional dancer, as a dance and music teacher, and as the owner of a yoga studio in Rhinebeck, New York.  More recently she was trained as a Lay Chaplain through Community of Hope, a program of Benedictine pastoral spirituality, which led her toward a call to ordination.  She graduated this spring from The General Theological Seminary in New York, and was/will be ordained to the Priesthood in Miami on May 30th.


Some of you may have met Kathleen+ when she visited MDI in April with her fiancé, The Rev. John Allison. Kathleen+ will be moving into the Dolliver House in Southwest Harbor in June, and will start work officially on July 1st.  Her first Sunday as our Curate will be July 5th at St. Saviour and July 12th at St. Andrew and St. John, and there will be plenty of opportunity to get to know her at coffee hour.


As you may remember from the May Voice / Net Tender, Kathleen+ is joining our parishes as Curate under a two-year agreement, which may be extended for a third year if all parties agree.  She will be serving us as Celebrant on alternate Sundays, as well as assisting with pastoral care, adult formation and all other aspects of priestly ministry.  As part of the agreement, the parishes agree to support Kathleen’s+ development and formation as a new priest.


So let us raise a glad alleluia and welcome to The Rev. Kathleen Killian!


By the Grace of God and the people consenting

The Right Reverend Leo Frade, Bishop of Southeast Florida

Will ordain

The Rev. Kathleen Killian
