Pandemic Considerations
Service Schedule and Visitors

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to directives from our Metropolitan and the State of Maine we must limit the number of parishioners present at any given service as a precaution against spreading the Covid virus.  We encourage all to practice appropriate social distancing in services and while coming and going from the church. Please keep in mind that many in church are in one family or regularly visit in one another's homes and so naturally there is less distance observed between some of our parishioners.

Parishioners:  For October there is no sign up, just come! 

Visitors: Visitors from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey are now able according to State of Maine mandates to pass into Maine without quarantine or testing.  All other visitors to the parish are requested to please call the church office at 207-588-2048 before coming to services.

The church is usually open Wednesday thru Saturday 10-3 for visits and prayers. 

Compline is usually (please call to confirm) served evenings at 4:30 pm except when there is a vigil scheduled (see schedule).

!!! (Compline and Midnight Office will not be served October 22-Nov 3 of this year.) 

The bookstore  is also open Wednesday thru Saturday 10-3 except on major feasts.  It is also open for a little while after the service on Sundays. If you are coming from afar it is always wise to confirm bookstore hours before coming.

Glory to God for all things!
