Meditation on Thursdays at 4:15 at St. John’s. Please join us for 30 minutes of shared silence and “prayer of the heart,” an ancient meditative practice of the Christian tradition. All are welcome! We meditate sitting on chairs, though if you prefer to sit on the floor, feel free to bring a mat or cushion. If you are new to meditation, have questions or concerns, or would like more information, please contact Mother Kathleen.

As a partner for the Acadia Centennial event on August 22nd at 2 pm, St. Saviour’s has agreed to host a simple lemonade social after. We need people to volunteer to bake cookies, or to provide lemonade, and to set up and serve as hosts. Please contact Diane Zito if you are willing to help at: Bluewatersailors@comcast.net.
Confidential Prayer Chain. With great joy and thanksgiving, we are pleased to announce the new ministry of a confidential Prayer Chain that is comprised of members from both St. Saviour’s and St. Andrew & St. John. Unlike our published prayer lists, prayer requests that come into the Prayer Chain remain private to the prayer chain itself, which will pray devotedly for one week unless an updated request is made. If you’d like to know more about this or our Pastoral Care Team, please contact our office administrators or Mother Kathleen.
St. Saviour’s Caregiver’s Support Group meets in the Rectory Library at St. Saviour’s Parish from 1 to 2:30 pm (following the Noon Eucharist) on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month. It is open to all local residents who are involved with the care of a loved one in their home or at an institution.
Contemplative Prayer is taking a break for August so that everyone can enjoy the Summer Organ Series! We will resume September 9th.

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. Desert Islander/Liz Graves.)

St. Saviour’s Panorama

 


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.
