To the Glory of God and for the Common Good.

                                           -- Mission Statement

                                            adopted June, 2010

 

Welcome to St. John’s Episcopal Church! Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Sundays at 8:00 am & 10:00 am.  Choral Evensong is offered on the first Sunday of each month at 4:00 pm, during the academic year.  (Nursery care is provided during the 10:00 am service and during Choral Evensong).      

 

Since 1835, the Parish of St. John’s has been worshiping and serving God, both from within our Church family and within our community of Bangor, Maine.  We conduct traditional Episcopal services in our historic gothic building high atop State Street Hill at 225 French Street.  We have a notable choir who has a reputation for fine music-making in the Anglican choral tradition.  Please join us as we worship in prayer and song!

ANIMAL ORPHANAGE DONATIONS: The middle school youth group is collecting pet supplies for the Old Town Animal Orphanage.  We are specifically looking for empty paper towel tubes, old towels and blankets, especially baby blankets with satin edging, cardboard boxes, and colored 3 x 5 index cards.  There is a collection tote in the back of the church for donations.  Thank you for your support.

 

If you are not currently receiving our “This Week at St. John’s” updates via email and would like to, please send your name and email address to office@stjohnsbangor.org and we will add you to our mailing list.

 

Bringing communion to our sick and homebound is an important part of our life together. If you or someone you know would like to receive communion please e-mail: deacon@stjohnsbangor.org .

 

On Sundays, when making your offerings to God and giving financial support to the church, please consider also bringing canned food each week for our donations to the Food Cupboard at the Bangor Homeless Shelter.  They can be placed by the bread and the wine at the entrance of the church and will be brought forward at the Offertory by our children and youth.

 

"CLYNK" for St. John’s! There’s a new and easy way to contribute to St. John’s.  Just pick up a green "CLYNK" bag with a St. John’s sticker already on it.  The bags are in the undercroft and the parish office. Then take the bag home and fill it with your returnable bottles and cans.  Return the bag to the "CLYNK" counter at Hannaford's. All the money from your returnable’swill be credited to St. John’s account.
