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!
St. John's Book Group invites you to their May Meeting on May 24th at 7:00pm. The group will be reading Anchors and Flares: a Memoir of Motherhood, Hope and Service by Kate Braestrup, a Maine author. The book is available in paperback, hardcover, kindle and some library copies. The meeting will be at Cass Wright's, 1 Hawthorn Rd., Orono. Questions? Cass at 866-1060.

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.
Do you love to cook? We have a new ministry opportunity for you! The youth are looking for volunteers to provide food for their upcoming May visit to the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter.
