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!
JUST A REMINDER as warmer weather arrives coffee hour will move from the undercroft to lemonade on the lawn for the summer months. Hope to see everyone there. Signup sheets will be available at Lemonade on the Lawn to sign up for Sunday’s in July and August.
As Sunday School ends, families are encouraged to worship together for the entire service as a vital part of a child's formation. Busy bags are available in the children's chapel area. The Wigglers class will continue throughout many Sundays of the summer for our youngest children. Volunteers are welcome; please let Anne-Marie know if you are interested.
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.
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: email@example.com .
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.
