https://episcopalmaine.org/resources/safe-church-training/The Diocese of Maine (“the Diocese”) is committed to the prevention of child abuse of all forms. The purpose of this policy is to help the church to be a safe place for all who worship, or minister, or come in any sort of need, including children, youth, and those who work with them. We believe that this policy is one aspect of honoring our baptismal vows to “respect the dignity of every human being.”SUNDAY WORSHIPFirst Sunday Life Together

 PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTSLike many of us, you may be struggling to make sense of racist violence against Americans of color, including the recent murders in Buffalo. While there are no easy answers, the Sacred Ground program provides a supportive environment and clear curriculum to help us to gain a better understanding of how we have gotten to this place and to envision a different way forward. We are now taking registrations for groups beginning this summer and fall, and hope you will consider joining us. We offer groups on Zoom and in-person, and we make the schedule based on participant availability. Sacred Ground is for anyone who wants to join with others to understand racism more clearly and to take a step towards repair. No matter where you are in your understanding of these issues, you are welcome here!  Learn more and register at https://stpaulsmaine.org/learning-sacred-ground-new/ or by contacting our Program Coordinator at SacredGroundME@gmail.com / (207)295-7856. Hard-copy registration forms are also available in the office.
 PRAYER REQUESTSMidcoast Hunger Prevention Program
Happy June. School will be getting out in two weeks. This will mean an end to school lunches for many students. Last year MCHPP established 8 sites to provide free lunches. This year they will be doing the same. This is in cooperation with the Summand Food Service Program and the Maine Department of Education. All students from ages 0 to 18 are eligible to receive a free lunch, no questions asked. This is an important program for these children. It is hard to enjoy their summer vacation on an empty stomach. Please help support this program and the other programs that MCHPP sponsors with any amount that you can spare. Also please visit the new MCHPP store on their website. You will find a variety of apparel on sale for all ages. This is a new feature they recently began. Send your contribution to MCHPP, 12 Tenney Way, Brunswick, ME 04011.
Thank You for Contributing!
