At St. John's

A HUGE THANK YOU to all who helped with the service and reception on Sunday, December 31st. There were 95 people from the four Episcopal churches on MDI in attendance and all went smoothly.


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. 



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!

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.



There will be a two day food packaging event at St. Andrew Lutheran Church, 175 Downeast Highway in Ellsworth on Friday, January 19 and Saturday, January 20.  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 - 48 people at any given time.  We don't have an exact schedule yet; but likely will work on Friday late morning/early afternoon to 6 or so.  On Saturday we generally work from 9 to 2.  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:  standrewme.org

Coffee's On! The first and third Tuesday of the month (January 2 and 16). Senior Coffee House has resumed at a new location: YWCA MDI, 36 Mt. Desert Street, Bar Harbor. Bring a friend and enjoy coffee, tea, snacks, and simply catching up with friends while making some new ones.
