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 8am & 10am.  Choral Evensong is offered on the first Sunday of each month at 4pm, during the academic year.  (Nursery care is provided during the 10am service & 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!

Message from the Treasurer:   As a result of exceptionally cold and snowy January through April, unfortunately we head into the upcoming heating season already having utilized the full year’s budget for heating the church and office building. If you are able to help defray the cost of heating the buildings for the remainder of 2015, please consider making a special donation to St. John’s - noting “Heating Assistance” in the memo line.  Thank you.

Our freezer is empty so prepared meals are needed for the homebound. Folks should include: the date that the item was prepared/frozen, and a list of all ingredients. Vegetarian items, small portions of soups, etc., are always good to have.


There will be an Online Giving Option Coming this Fall to St. John’s Episcopal Church Bangor!  We are pleased to announce the introduction of an electronic option for making regular or one-time donations.  Please watch church bulletins or go to for more information beginning September 2015.


The Ministry of Choir is vital to our worship. It is a way to go deeper into worship and make a personal offering to God.  It’s also a great way to make friends and colleagues, and to have a lot of fun.  Adults and children: to join for fall, please email Mr. Robert Ludwig at and plan to come to an opening Bar-B-Que on September 3rd at the home of the Rector. All our welcome and encouraged.


Our 180th anniversary celebration will be on Sunday, October 4th Festal Eucharist with guest preacher, the Rev. Cn. Michael Ambler. Choral Evensong (4pm) followed by a festive reception Tea.

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.
