At St. John's

Starting October 1 we will move to one Sunday service at 9:00 am at St. John’s in Southwest Harbor. On that day we will have a parish wide forum following the service about our future beyond this one year partnership with Church of our Father and St. Saviour’s. We'd like to get your feedback and hear your thoughts and ideas, hopes and dreams for a sustainable and creative future for St. Andrew & St. John, and the Episcopal churches on MDI. Please join us! 
Meditation on Tuesdays at 4:00 at St. John’s. Please join us for 30 minutes of shared silence and “prayer of the heart,” an ancient meditative practice of the Christian tradition. All are welcome! We meditate sitting on chairs, though if you prefer to sit on the floor, feel free to bring a mat or cushion. If you are new to meditation, have questions or concerns, or would like more information, please contact Mother Kathleen.
Westside Food Pantry Recital Series--Saturday, October 7 at 6:30--the Kelley Farm band composed of Rick Barter, Amy Kurman and Beth Herrick on vocals and ukuleles, Jim Vekasi on vocals and octave mandolin and Tom Karnofsky on bass perform for our food pantry.  Their music will feature multi-part harmonies, and string improvisation on American folk, jazz and popular songs.  Suggested donation-$10--ALL proceeds go to our food pantry.  Contact-Susan Buell- 244-8061

Episcopal Relief & Development:

Episcopal Relief & Development invites you to pray for and support communities responding to a devastating and dangerous hurricane season.

Hurricane Maria’s path over the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean is expected to bring significant hardship to those already affected by Hurricane Irma.

We are working with local Church partners to support their preparation for and response to the ongoing hurricane season.

In addition, ERD continues to address urgent needs in communities – from Texas to Florida to Georgia – that have been impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.

Please donate through the organization's website and get more information about relief and recovery efforts or send a check. FMI: With your partnership, we are healing a hurting world. Please make checks payable to Episcopal Relief & Development and mail to P.O. Box 7058, Merrifield VA 22116-7058.
