Bishop's Visitations

Episcopal Visitations are required by Canon III (see below) every three years.  In the Diocese of Maine, episcopal visitations are scheduled in rotation about once every 28-30 months.  Other celebrations, special services/ mission leadership or pastoral care visits may be scheduled 'in between' official visitations by either the Priest in Charge/Sr. Warden or the Bishop.  For more information about visitation dates in 2021, please visit the Bishop Visitation page.  Questions? Please contact Canon Barbara Martin
