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:

 Pantry season is upon us!  Our first distribution will be Sunday, November 4th, 12 Noon to 2 PM, in Harbor House.  Preparations are underway for the opening.


I am calling on anyone who can spare all or part of Saturday, October 20, 1 to 3 PM, at St. John Episcopal Church, 315 Main Street to assist with getting out this year's annual appeal mailing.  As you know, over 75% of the monies that support the Pantry come from those whom we remind of our work annually through this appeal.  It is very important to what we do.  Please help out this Saturday if you can.


Here are the tasks:

  • jot hand-written notes on appeal letters to anyone you know
  • stuff the envelopes with appeal materials

Thank you for joining this effort!  Barbara Campbell has hand-addressed each of the over 300 appeal envelopes.  Please join in sending them on their way.

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!


Moving forward in the process that will lead to the calling of our next bishop, the Diocese of Maine has published our Diocesan Profile at  This snapshot of our diocese has been made available across the church, and it is worth reading to see how we are presenting ourselves to potential candidates.  The profile also includes a timeline of the process, culminating in an election in February and the consecration of the Tenth Bishop of Maine in June, 2019.
