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!

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.
