Fresh Start in the Diocese of Maine


Fresh Start® is a diocesan-led program that seeks to foster healthy relationships among clergy, their congregations and their dioceses during critical periods of transition. Encouraging open and honest discussion of transitional issues affecting both clergy and congregations, the program’s goal is to build a culture in which the mutual ministry of the clergy and congregation starts off on the right foot, enabling their new relationship to begin with a “Fresh Start”.

Michael Ambler, Canon to the Ordinary, coordinates and facilitates Fresh Start in Maine.  For more information about schedules and other details contact him at or 207-772-1953 ext. 123.
