Welcome to St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Rockland, Maine
We are a diverse group of Christian believers, each of us on a faith journey and all at different places on that journey. We welcome all people – your questions, your ideas, your passions, your stories, and your experiences – all those things that make you the unique person God created you to be.
As a parish within the Episcopal Church, we are also a member of the World-wide Anglican Communion. As Anglicans our theology, worship and organizational structures embody aspects of both Roman Catholicism and Reformed Protestantism, which makes us attractive to people from many different religious backgrounds who are seeking a new church home.
We invite you to join us for worship on Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. (10:00 a.m. during the summer). You may also join us for worship for an alternative contemplative Eucharist in the chapel on Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m. You can find a description of the different services on our Worship page. The church is handicapped accessible.
If you are looking for a place to call your spiritual home, in the words of Jesus, “Come and see” if St. Peter’s Church is for you.
Thank you all for your support of the 2014 Share the Love Auction
We want to thank everyone who joined us Saturday February 8th. It was a huge success and we exceeded last year's total and are able to do much more this year to help people in need in our community.
Thank you to the community for your support and thank you to all the businesses who donated their items for auction. We also want to thank Rockland District Nurses Associate, AIO Food Pantry and Salvation Army for all their help the night of the auction and volunteering your time. We also want to thank all other volunteers that helped in the kitchen and was willing to lend a hand to us the entire day.
A special thank you to Bruce and Becky Gamage for volunteering their time. We couldn't ask for a better auctioneer that kept things moving and kept the laughter in the room.
We will see you all next year!

Clergy and Staff
Kate has worked as the Parish Secretary of St. Peter's Episcopal Church of Rockland since June, 2010. With over 25 years of administrative experience, as well as 10 years of experience in healthcare compliance, Kate is very comfortable in the parish office.
She is also the author of Medical Coding Evaluation and Management, which outlines the intricacies of any physician-patient healthcare visit.
She and her husband Seth, a Congregational minister, have been married for 22 years, and are the proud parents of a 16 year old daughter college freshman.
The Rev. Jane Chatfield – Jane was recently ordained to the Diaconate on June 29, 2013 and was sponsored by St. Peter’s for this ministry. Her primary diaconal ministry is to be a chaplain to the hospitalized at Pen Bay Medical Center. Jane provided the following biography:
I grew up in Milton, MA, during a time when kids could ride bikes to friends' houses, and mothers were home (some exceptions). We skated on local ponds, skied in corn fields, played tennis on nearby courts, and knew everyone in the neighborhood. Life was simple, and enjoyable.
After school, I went to college in New Hampshire and Illinois, worked in New York City for two years, and married a man who loved classical archeology so I lived in Turkey for two summers. That marriage unfortunately ended in divorce and I married my present husband, John, in 1974. I got a landscape design degree and had a practice in Bedford, NY, which lasted fifteen years.
We moved to Maine in 2005, and I became a deacon-in-training in 2007. I love to ski, garden, cook and sing (choir only).
