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 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!
Please RSVP and save the date for our All Parish Harvest Dinner on October 30th following the 10am service. Our youth (with a wonderful team of support) are preparing a turkey dinner with all the fixings. Knowing how many will attend would be a huge help in their preparations. Please RSVP to the parish office at 947-0156. Please also consider helping them by volunteering to bring a pie for dessert of by making donations to support their confirmation pilgrimage.
A Centering Prayer (CP) group will be meeting each Thursday in the oratory (parish office building) from 5:45-6:30. CP is a contemplative spiritual discipline that seeks to develop the prayer habit of resting in the presence of God. This group presents an excellent opportunity for silent meditation following attendance at Evening Prayer.
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.

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.
