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.
