We consider engaging in outreach ministries and mission part of our faith journeys. These journeys take us from Sunday School to youth events to adult councils where we live out our faith and strive for social justice in the areas of: Advocacy, Creation Care, Racial Justice, Peace, Indigenous Relations,and Community Support Ministries such as our Jubilee Centers. Each of these avenues in which we strive for social justice is led by an individual council working within our Diocesan Justice Commission. Reach out to Emily Keniston, Director of Faith Formation, to learn how you can get involved.
We are joined in our Faith Formation ministry by the diocese’s Commission on Ministry in the work of discernment, and led by the our Justice Commission and Maine Episcopal Public Policy Network (MEPPN) in bringing our faith-based values and voices in the area of social justice to the public-square.
