Who we are:

We are an inclusive Episcopal congregation open and welcoming to all regardless of age, race, finances, ability or orientation.  We invite and encourage all who are seeking a deeper and more meaningful spiritual life to worship and learn with us.  All who seek God are welcome to receive communion at St. Saviour’s.

We honor and respect the traditions of our liturgy.  The liturgy is an integral part of our worship.  But we are open to thoughtful adaptation of the liturgy, especially when the result is increased inclusivity.  Parishioners are welcome to question the liturgy while still taking part in it.

We like to be challenged.  We are inspired by preachers and guests who open our eyes to new ways of seeing and thinking about things, whether it be a gospel passage or the world around us.

We love music and artistry and the way God is made known through creative works.

Where we worship:

St. Saviour’s is located on a campus of large, historic buildings constructed primarily in the late 19th and early 20th centuries with generous gifts from members of the Bar Harbor summer colony.  Worship services are generally held in St. Mary’s chapel or the ornate main church.

The summer community remains a vital part of our Parish life, but over the decades, the year-round community has become an integral part of the community.   We worship together as one.

Our campus includes:

  • the main church (in which the St. Mary’s chapel resides)
  • an attached Parish Hall, where we hold coffee hour and annual meetings, as well as host a wide variety of community functions
  • a Memorial Garden
  • the Rectory Common, renovated in the early 2000’s, which also hosts community functions, as well as staff offices and a three-story residence
  • and, a Parish House, which may be renovated and restored as a home for adults with special challenges.

During the colder months, Morning Prayer is held in the Parish Library, a comfortable, sunny room in the Rectory Common.  Study groups and Sunday morning forums are also held in the Library.
