Welcome to St. Saviour’s!

Exciting News!

A new priest has been called to join us on M.D.I. Please welcome The Reverend Holly Hoffmann as our new Priest in Charge at Church of Our Father, St. John’s/St. Andrew’s, and at St. Saviour’s. Our thanks to the Search Committee: Jayne Ashworth, Genevieve MacKenzie, Ted Fletcher, Patsy Fogarty and Bob Stanwood from St. Andrew and St. John; Tony Sousa, Kate Berry, Larry Johnston and Mike Bullard from Church of Our Father; and Linda Foster, Pat Samuel, and Buck Jardine from St. Saviour’s for all of their work and this great result!

    The Rev Hoffmann comes to us from St. Alban’s in Cape Elizabeth, ME where she is currently the Associate Rector at St. Alban’s and also Executive Director of St. Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center.  
    The priesthood is a second career for her. Prior to entering seminary, she was a high school English teacher and Associate Dean of Academics at Gould Academy in Bethel, Maine. She attended Yale Divinity School and was ordained in 2018. 
    Following several months of work, the search committees of St. Andrew/St. John, Church of Our Father and St. Saviour chose The Rev Hoffmann. We all felt that the Spirit was guiding us in our discernment as she was selected on a first vote by all three unique and diverse search committees. (A truly amazing event!) The Vestries of St.Saviour’s, St. Andrew’s and St John’s and Church of Our Father, along with their congregation, all approved the calling of the Rev Hoffmann. Following this approval, Bishop Brown was notified and gave his “joyful consent” to our calling her as our priest.

Sermon by Fr. John Burton

The lesson says to us, “So I hear you are longing for the good old days, I hear you are longing to go back to the way it was, and you knew how it was going to be, and you could predict from one week to another what your life was going to be like,” said Father Burton. “And God is going to do that – he is going to restore you to the land, you just wait, and, the prophet says, your restoration is not just about you, your restoration is so that you will be a light to the nations, the rest of the world, the people who up until now paid no attention to this God who the people of Israel worshipped.”

On the trail of the stolen Tiffany Lily stained glass window…

Katharine Whitney with the assistance of Eva Davis and Lee Garrett spoke to “Coffee’s On” and the Acadia Senior College at the Maine Seacoast Mission on Tuesday, February 16th, about our stolen Tiffany Easter Lily Window, and some of the technological improvements in the pursuit of stolen fine arts, which give rise to a cautious optimism, that we may be closer to the possible recovery of our window than at any point since it was stolen 28 years ago.  (Photograph used with permission of Mt.
