To the Glory of God and for the Common Good, we make God's love known now and for generations to come through worship and service to all.

                                               -- 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!  

Once again St. John's Episcopal Church is sponsoring Homes for the Holidays, a fundraiser for its Outreach Programs.  Five architecturally and historically significant homes will be open to the public on Saturday December 6 from Noon until 4 PM.  This year all five homes are on the East side of Bangor, with four on Broadway and one on Court St.  The homes will be decorated for the holidays, with pamphlets describing the significant features of each house for every visitor.  Refreshments will be served at each home, and the St. John's choir and the Bangor Area Children's Choir will sing seasonal carols.  As before the tickets are $25 and will be available beginning the first week in November at Sprague's, Chapel Hill Floral, Rebecca's, St. John's office and at each home on the day of the tour.  For further information call the office at St. John's Episcopal Church 947-0156.
