As of Oct. 6, St. Philip’s vestry will move its Sunday service from the longtime 9 a.m. start time a half-hour later, to 9:30 a.m. At the same time, the worship space will once again be moved to the church’s Lippiat Hall, at 12 Hodge St. in Wiscasset, as an energy-saving effort for the colder months of the year. Many attending truly enjoy the intimacy of the hall’s worship space. All people are welcome to join in.
“All God’s critters got a place in the choir,” as the song goes. With that in mind and reflecting the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Philip’s will host a blessing of the animals during the Oct. 6 service. The Rev. Ted Kanellakis will preside over any and all who wish to have their furry, feathery, or scaly family members blessed. All pets, in person or via photo, are encouraged to take part on leash, in carrier, in arms — however people wish to offer up their precious friends for the yearly blessing.
For more information, call St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Wiscasset at 882-7184. Office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:15-2:15 p.m. Otherwise, leave a message that includes a return number, and someone will respond.
