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.

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!

In Our Community:

This summer (July 21-23) the Spiritual Life and Learning Center is pleased to be sponsoring a program at Schoodic Institute in Winter Harbor, titled Your Spirit - Your World: Connecting heart, earth and soul. This year's conference has been designed to help participants tap into their inherent divine energy and interconnectedness in order to become spiritual activists in their daily lives.  It features Mirabai Starr (fresh from her work with Fr. Richard Rohr at the Conspire Conference) and five other presenters/workshop leaders whose goal is to offer participants tools to be more effective in reconnecting their spiritual life to the world in which they live each day. For information or to register, go to or call 207-374-5200.
