WELCOME TO SAINT PETER'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH

A diverse group of Christian believers, sharing faith journeys along many different paths.

In-person worship, the Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen, and select gatherings have resumed in accordance with CDC approved protocols.

Welcome to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church

Whoever you are, wherever you find yourself on the journey of faith, you are welcome at St. Peter’s.

We are a diverse group of Christian believers, following the Way of Jesus by many different paths.  We welcome all people and all that you are – your questions, your doubts, your ideas, your passions, your stories, and your experiences – all those things that make you the unique person God has created you to be.  We believe that God invites us to grow spiritually, transforming our lives into ever more loving relationship with one another and all of creation.

As a small parish within the Episcopal Church, we are also a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion.  Our theology, worship, and organizational structures embody aspects of Roman Catholicism, Orthodox Christianity, and Reformed Protestantism, which make us attractive to people from many different religious backgrounds who are seeking a spiritual community. Our worship encompasses ancient and contemporary forms of worship. We invite you to join us on Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. to learn more about our worship, fellowship, and commitment to serving Christ in our neighborhood and the world.

We also invite you on Sundays to our Celtic Eucharist worship at 5:30 p.m. Drawn from the liturgical traditions of Iona and Northumbria, our service combines meditative silence, simplicity of utterance, and faithful commitment to care for the earth. This way of prayer, of opening oneself to God’s love, forgiveness, and hope – to the fullness of God’s presence in our lives – is hundreds of years old but also speaks with immediacy to the yearning of our hearts now.

You can also join us during the week for Morning Prayer or for a contemplative Eucharist on Wednesday mornings.

8:00 AM – Spoken service
10:30 AM – Service with instrumental music and chant
5:30 PM– Celtic service with instrumental music and chant

Weekday Worship Schedule
Wednesday – Contemplative Eucharist, 7:00 AM

A Centering Prayer Group gathers on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month, at 9:00 AM in the Rector’s Parlor.

Feast of the Transfiguration

Beauty isn’t all about just nice loveliness. Beauty is about more rounded, substantial becoming. So I think beauty, in that sense, is about an emerging fullness, a greater sense of grace and elegance, a deeper sense of depth, and also a kind of homecoming for the enriched memory of your unfolding life. (John O’Donohue)

Resuming In-Person Worship

A letter from our rector. After careful planning and prayerful deliberation, I am pleased to announce that we will resume in-person Sunday worship at St. Peter’s on August 2, 2020. We have been and will continue to follow the guidelines from the Diocese of Maine, Governor Mills, and the Maine Centers for Disease Control (CDC) during the pandemic. In this pastoral letter, I want to give you a sense of how we can resume worship safely and what to expect.
