Brown Bag Study Groups!

Study Group Opportunities in St. Saviour’s Parish
There will be a Brown Bag Book Group on Thursday, August 28, at 6:00 p.m. in the Library. The topic is “Episcopal Mysteries”. We will be discussing the works of mystery writers Julia Spencer-Fleming, Kate Gallison, and Mark Schweizer, all of whom write entertaining mysteries featuring Episcopal clergy and church members. Participants are invited to read at least one book of one or two of these authors (Great summer reading!).

The book is available on Amazon.com, but allow plenty of time to order them!

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.
