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!

To: All people in the Diocese of Maine

From: Diocesan Discernment Committee  


In order to hear from as many people as possible in the Diocese of Maine, we invite you to take a short survey regarding our quest for the next Bishop of Maine. Your input will be very helpful to the Discernment Committee in articulating to prospective candidates who the people and congregations of the Diocese of Maine are and what type of person they are looking for to be their next Bishop.

If you have any comments beyond the survey form, please send those to discernmentcommittee@ .


Thank you for taking the time to do this. The survey closes February 28.
