Pandemic Considerations

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:  You will receive emails with links for signing in to services. Please use the SIGN UP GENIUS link to sign in for services, and cancel your sign up if your plans have changed and you will not be attending the service.

Visitors:  Please call the parish office before attending Vigils and Liturgies.  Space is limited and, sadly, we may not be able to recieve you for weekend services.  Call ahead to 207-588-2048 or to 207-504-1601 to learn of space availability. It is possible that a weekday service will have space available.

The church is usually open Wednesday thru Saturday 10-3 for visits and prayers.  No need to reserve a space.  Compline is served evenings at 4:30 pm except when there is a vigil scheduled (see schedule).  Again, no need to reserve a space. Just come.

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.

Glory to God for all things!
