From the Diocese of Maine{Diocese of Maine}

As a Parish of the Diocese of Maine, we are part of a church family that extends from Kittery to Fort Kent, and connects us to the rest of the Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion.  We share ministry with our Bishop and with every worshipping community.
If you are not subscribed to the Diocesan twice monthly email newsletter, the DioLog, please click [here] to subscribe.  If you are subscribed, don't forget to open it and read it every time!  There is a lot going on in every corner of the Diocese, and you wouldn't want to miss anything!

Spring Training
Saturday, April 29, 2017, Spring Training at St. Paul's, Brunswick.  This is the primary teaching and training event of the Diocesan year, when folks from all over gather to exchange wisdom and knowledge in workshops about being the church today.  More than twenty workshops to choose from, with more information  [here]
If you'd like to share a ride to Spring Training, St. Dunstan's, Ellsworth, is looking into renting a 12-passenger van to transport folks from our area.  If you're interested, contact Mother Johanna Johannson at abishag51@yahoo.com

A diocesan retreat for adults –June 9-11
Register Now: Playing with Fire: The Parables of Jesus
Join us for a weekend at Camp Bishopswood on beautiful Lake Megunticook near Camden, to enrich your heart, mind and soul. This retreat is for everyone who has wondered what Jesus had in mind when he told a parable. Moral teaching? Confounding truth? Topsy-turvey gospel? Read, pray, sing and embody the parables with others who are wondering the same things. The weekend will be hosted by Rev. Bill Blaine-Wallace, Merle Marie Troeger, Jane Hartwell and musician Thew Elliott.
There is financial aid for everyone who needs it and also scholarships for Sunday school teachers and youth event volunteers. For more information, contact Jane Hartwell at jhartwell@episcopalmaine.org. Download an information flyer and register at www.tinyURL.com/AdultRetreat2017.

at St. Saviour:

Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Wednesdays at noon in the Chapel, in a simple, non-musical service.  We plan to commemorate saints and seasons using the church's published calendar, as well as focusing on healing for ourselves and for the world.

Caregivers' Support Group meets in the Rectory Library from 1:15 to 2:45 pm (following the Noon Eucharist) the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. Open to the entire community!

at St. John and St. Saviour:

PDFs of Mother Kathleen's sermons and video recordings of Fr. Tim's sermons are now available on St. Saviour's website (www.StSaviours.me); Fr. Tim's videos are also available at St. John's website at (www.StAndrewStJohn.blogspot.com)
Confidential Prayer Chain: Unlike our published prayer lists, prayer requests that come into the Prayer Chain remain private to the prayer chain itself, which will pray devotedly for one week unless an updated request is made. If you'd like to know more about this or our Pastoral Care Team, please contact our office administrators or Mother Kathleen.
