Bicentennial Eucharist Celebration
Saturday, November 16, 2019, 01:00pm - 04:00pm

Join the Episcopal Diocese of Maine for a very special Bicentennial Eucharist Celebration. This will be the first official service to honor and celebrate our past 200 years, to embrace the present, to listen and speak, to pray and set forth boldly into the future.

Visit Facebook to let us know you're coming. 

Clergy: please wear cassock and surplice or cassock-alb with white or festive stole.  Please don't hesitate to email the Rev. Kerry Mansir if you have any questions. 

Choir members needed for the Bicentennial Choir! Join the choir for the special service to honor and celebrate the Diocese of Maine's 200th birthday (1820-2020) at Christ Church in Gardiner on Satruday, November 16 at 1:00 pm. Christ Church has historical significance. The first Bishop of Maine was the rector there, it is the oldest church in the Diocese of Maine, and it was consecrated in 1820 so it shares a birthday with the Diocese of Maine and the state of Maine. The service will use elements from the 1789 Prayer Book and the Scottish Episcopal Church Book of Common Prayer.

The choir will rehearse at 11:00 am the same day as the service. The anthems will be: Simple Gifts - Attrib. to Elder Joseph Brackett, adapted by Aaron Copland, arr. by David L. Brunner and The Old Hundredth Psalm Tune - William Kethe/Louis Bourgeois, arr. by Ralph Vaughan Williams.
