Known ahead of time only to a few folks (not including Father Tim!), Bishop Thomas showed up in the pews on December 22, 2019, to recognize Tim’s service and leadership, and to bless the next chapters in his ministry.

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.
St. Saviour’s is in a ministry-sharing collaboration with two other parishes on MDI: The Parish of St. Andrew & St. John in Southwest Harbor, and The Church of Our Father in Hulls Cove. We share worship once a month, as well as coordinating outreach and fellowship ministries.
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.

Seth Thompson, an assistant professor of design at the American University of Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), produced this beautiful panorama of St. Saviour’s. Click here to explore the depths of this 360-degree view of our sanctuary. He has graciously allowed us to maintain a home for this on our website.
This panorama is also featured in Mr. Thompson’s Sacred Spaces of New England project.
