All Saints by-the-Sea, an Episcopal summer chapel, welcomes visitors of all faiths. The chapel’s dual mission is worship and outreach to the community. Services are held from mid-June through the second Sunday in September on the beautiful island of Southport in the Boothbay Maine region.
Each season Episcopal ministers from around the country are invited to visit for one or two weeks to preach and conduct services on Sunday and lead a discussion group on the porch on Tuesdays.
Under the direction of the Right Reverend Stephen F. Lane, Episcopal Bishop of Maine, the chapel is administered by a Governing Committee of volunteer members of the congregation who are permanent or summer residents of the area.
On Sunday, August 13th at 5pm there will be a joint service of Evensong at St. Columba’s Church, 32 Emery Lane, BoothBay Harbor. The Rt Reverend Mark Beckwith, Bishop of the Diocese of Newark, N.J. will preside and the Lincoln Festival Chorus, directed by Anthony Antolini, will provide the music. A free-will offering at this service supports the Joint Outreach work of the two churches.
