Learn to Meditate in Lent: Please join us for a contemplative Lenten series Breathing in the Spirit on Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 at St. John’s in Southwest Harbor. We will learn about breathing, the subtlest form of body work, and the prayer of the heart; how the two entwine to carry us deeper into communion with God, and both of which are ancient Christian practices and traditions. Group will meet Thursdays through March 17th, led by Mother Kathleen.


By waiting and by calm you shall be saved, in quiet and in trust your strength lies. (Isaiah 30:15)


During Lent we will be collecting our parish gift to Episcopal Relief & Development. You may put a check in the plate with ERD in the memo line. We will also be collecting for United Thank Offering (UTO). Boxes and envelopes are available at the back of the church. Return your boxes on Palm Sunday.
