At St. John's

Meditation on Tuesdays at 4:00 at St. John's. Please join us for 30 minutes of shared silence and "prayer of the heart," an ancient meditative practice of the Christian tradition. All are welcome! We meditate sitting on chairs, though if you prefer to sit on the floor, feel free to bring a mat or cushion. If you are new to meditation, have questions or concerns, or would like more information, please contact Mother Kathleen. 



Westside Food Pantry:


Tuesday, January 23, 6:00 p.m. at St. John the Divine in Southwest Harbor

Peter Broderick, an internationally known musician, will perform pieces by Arthur Russell and others. Some of you know long-time SWH resident, Kate Russell Henry.  Kate's brother, Arthur Russell, was a composer and musician who died of AIDS in 1990.

I am excited that Arthur's partner, Tom Lee, Kate, and other members of Arthur's family invited Peter Broderick to perform for our Food Pantry.  Please GOOGLE Peter Broderick to hear some of his music.

As always, the recitals are an opportunity to experience a variety of musical performances in our beautiful sanctuary.  We hope to raise money and hope to raise awareness of the work of the Westside Food Pantry.  The last food pantry concert, The Kelly Farm Band, raised over $600!  Let's see if we can top that and make a dent in the deficit we are experiencing. Our suggested donation is $10--ALL donations go directly to help our neighbors.

Once again, thanks to Dianne McMullan for hosting the reception, to Michael Shook, for putting up the sign advertising the recital, to Michele Daley for help with the publicity, and to all of you for supporting the recital series.

The Pantry will be open on Sundays, January 7 (12:00-2:00 p.m.) and 21 (12:00-1:00 p.m.) at the Harbor House in Southwest Harbor.



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:

Harpsichord Recital, Sunday, January 28, 4:00 p.m. New music director Daniel Pyle will present a recital of music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. The program will include works by Girolamo Frescobaldi, William Byrd, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, and Louis Couperin. Admission is free. Donations will benefit the Friends of Music Fund at St. Saviour's.

Church of Our Father:

 Annual Meeting:  Sunday, January 21st.

St. Mary and St. Jude:

Prayer Shawl Ministry, Thursdays at 10:00 a.m.



at St. John, St. Saviour, & Church of Our Father:

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.


Spaghetti Dinner: The Junior firefighters of the Southwest Harbor Fire Department invite you to a spaghetti dinner on Saturday, January 13, 4:30-6:30 at the SWH fire station. Admission by donation, proceeds will be used to purchase 5-shirts and training gear. There will also be a 50/50 raffle.


There will be a two day food packaging event at St. Andrew Lutheran Church, 175 Downeast Highway in Ellsworth on Friday, January 19 (noon to 6:00) and Saturday, January 20 (9:00-2:00).  This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to come together and package healthy non-perishable meals that are distributed to food pantries in Washington and Hancock Counties (including the Westside Food Pantry). A quarter pays for one serving; $1.50 for a package that feeds 6 people. Our goal is at least 40,000 meals ($10,000).

Donations are needed plus lots of volunteers for the 19th and 20th!  Our goal is at least 4 assembly lines working - which is 40-50 people.  Some people work the whole day; some work for an hour or two.  There are jobs for heavy lifters and for those who need to sit. We are accepting donations until the end of the day on January 20.  Checks can be made payable to St. Andrew Lutheran Church and mailed to:  P. O. Box 145 Ellsworth, ME  04605.  For more information 667-7641 or check our website:
