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!

at St. Saviour:

Taizé - An Ecumenical Prayer Service: Friday, July 1st at 5 pm in the Chapel. Simple, yet profound. Experience the spirituality and the meditative songs of the Taizé community, an interdenominational and ecumenical monastic order known around the world for its message of trust, peace and reconciliation.

~ Candlelight ~ Scripture ~ Silence ~ Song ~ Prayer ~

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:

Pastoral Care and Prayer Teams: Please join us next Tuesday June 27 at St. John for meditation from 4-4:30pm, and/or immediately following for (about) an hour meeting of sharing, prayer, and fellowship. We'll have some nibbles to munch on and you'll be home by suppertime. 
Our main agenda item is "communication"how we communicate with each other about pastoral needs, visits, and followup. I have some thoughts about this and would love to hear your thoughts also as we move forward. I'm interested too in re-instating our lay Eucharist ministers.

I realize not everyone will be able to make it. Please let me, Joan Bromage, Linda Foster, or Sue Blaisdell know your feedback/thoughts by phone or email. Attached below is a current list of our pastoral care/prayer team members with email and phone. 
Our next gathering will be in September/October.
My deep gratitude for the vital care and prayer you faithfully offer our parishes and wider community!
Blessing, Kathleen+

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.

St. Mary and St. Jude:

On Sunday, June 25, we will kick off the summer with one combined worship service, 10:00 at St. Jude's. We will be celebrating the completion of our renovations there, conduct a short and quick Annual Meeting part II, and celebrate some more with a festive coffee hour. This is the only time when our two churches worship together.

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.
