On Sunday, July 30th, at 3:00 p.m. organist Stephen Wiggin will present a program of organ music at St. Aidan’s Church.

Selections will be taken from the vast repertoire of music composed for the organ over the last 400 years.  Composers from the 17th century will be the Germans J. S. Bach and Dietrich Buxtehude; The 18th century will be represented by English composers John Bennett, Matthew Camidge and Charles Wesley; music of the 19th century will be by Cesar Frank and Johannes Brahms; and the music of American composers Samuel Barber and Paul Manz from the 20th century will complete the program.

A festive reception will follow the concert.

Tickets for the concert and reception are $10.00 per person.  Contact any church member or call 207-497-2698.  Seating is limited.  All proceeds from the concert will go to support the church’s heating fund.

New Editor for Web Page

I have taken over the St. Aidan’s web page.   My hope is that it can be a tool for both visitors and a form of newsletter for parishioners.

“Living Local Joining God”

The Episcopal Diocese of Maine as well as the Connecticut, Southwest Virginia, and East Tennessee Dioceses are currently enrolled in a national program called Living Local: Joining God.  Its emphasis is on listening to God and to each other beyond the walls of our church.  It is not another layer of theological programs for the church to enact.  It is about getting out of our own building and meeting our neighbors in the fullest sense of that word.  God is everywhere.  We are learning to look and listen for God and learn more about ourselves and our communities. To learn more details about this project please contact us.
