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 Download an information flyer and register at

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.

PDFs of Mother Kathleen's sermons and video recordings of Fr. Tim's sermons are now available on St. Saviour's website (; Fr. Tim's videos are also available at St. John's website at (
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.
