Service of Lessons and Carols

This Sunday, December 29th, at 9:30 AM, St. Aidan’s will be having our service of Lessons and Carols. This service is the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus. It is told through the readings of lessons from the Bible with carols and hymns sung in between each reading.

We hope you will be able to join us for this inspiring and prayerful service.

Blessings be with you all.

On Saturday, November 2nd, Bishop Thomas Brown visited St. Aidan’s Church in Machias where he met with members of the Vestry and, along with Rev. Lynn V. Rutledge+, blessed and dedicated the Stephen Moyer Memorial Garden. Among those in attending were members of Stephen’s family who were able to make the trip for this loving event.

Bishop Thomas Brown will make his first visits to the three Washington County Episcopal Churches at the end of this month. He’ll spend almost four days with us, and during that time will meet with Vestries, clergy and congregations as well as touring our towns, stopping in at ministry projects, blessing a memorial garden and confirming and receiving new members.

Saturday, November 2 – Bishop Brown will head to Machias where he will meet with the St. Aidan’s Vestry and with confirmands. In the late afternoon, he will bless the new Stephen Moyer Memorial Garden, have supper with parishioners and preside at Holy Eucharist with Confirmation in the evening.
