As a Parish of the Diocese of Maine, we are part of a church family that extends from Kittery to Fort Kent, and connects us to the rest of the Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion. We share ministry with our Bishop and with every worshipping community.

Following on from the success of our first prayer service for the Ukraine held at CoOF this spring after Easter, the members of Outreach committees from each church are planning a second, ecumenical prayer service in downtown Bar Harbor on Wednesday, August 3 at 12:15 pm at St. Saviour’s.
We hope the many people who are in town visiting join us in prayer. Music will be provided by Debby Governor, Music Director of St. Andrew and St. John, Southwest Harbor and St. Andrew’s Lutheran, Ellsworth.
Evening Music at St. Saviour’s presents a special concert, on Friday , May 27, at 12:00 noon. This special concert, “Dueling Clavichords.” Dr. Kevin Birch and Dr. Gregory Crowell will take us on a journey of musical discovery performing keyboard music of the 17th and 18th Centuries on clavichords by Dutch builder Koen Vermeij (1988) after Christian Gottlob Hubert (1784) and German builder Martin Kather (2020) after Praetorius (1621). A favorite instrument of Johann Sebastian Bach, according to his earliest biographer Forkel, that “both for practice and intimate use he regarded the clavichord as the best instrument for study and preferred to express on it his finest feelings.” Birch and Crowell will introduce the program with a description and historical overview of the clavichord.

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.
