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.

Sesquicentennial!  Sunday, July 23 at 4 PM, the Episcopal Parishes of Mount Desert Island will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first recorded Episcopal worship service on MDI.  The event will  include a singing procession from St. Saviour's to the Bar Harbor Village Green, the Office of Evening Prayer from the 1789 Prayer Book, followed by light refreshments in St. Saviour's Parish Hall.  Dress in 19th century costume if you wish!
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.
