  1. We will be in Bar Harbor on Sunday, September 22. Will there be a tour after the service and if so, what time please? Is there a cost for the tour?

    • Barring unforeseen circumstances, we offer free tours following the 10:00 service at approximately 11:15 on Sundays during the tourist season and when cruise ships are in port (which includes September 22). Greeting cards with images of our windows are available for purchase at the tours.
