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.

Summer Organ Series will be held on Fridays in August from 12:15-1:00.  The church features a 27-rank Visser-Rowland tracker organ which is used in worship services each week as well as to support community choral and instrumental performances.

August 4: Kevin Birch
August 11: Deborah Govenor, organist and Paul Bartels, vocal soloist
August 18: Ray Cornils
August 25: Julia Morris-Myers
