LIMITED MASS ATTENDANCE
At present, the Diocese of Portland is allowing Maine churches to hold public Masses with restrictions and safeguards in place and no more than 50 people in attendance. At St. Athanasius & St. John, we can accommodate 50 upstairs and 50 downstairs.
Masses are open to the first 100 people who arrive. We are no longer reserving spots for Masses.
If you would like to volunteer to assist with Lord's Day Masses, with cleaning, or with the Porter Ministry, please contact the Parish Office at (207) 364-4556.
The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues to be in place.

SUPPORT THE PARISH
During these difficult times, we are exceedingly grateful to everyone who has continued to support the parish financially. Many parishioners have remained committed to dropping off or mailing in their offertory envelopes. We are also grateful for the generosity of several friends of the parish who have made donations. Thank you!

2020 Annual Catholic Appeal
Update September 2020
The Pastoral Plan Implementation Team has been meeting regularly over the past couple of weeks to prepare a summary of the 2020-2023 Pastoral Plan adjusting the timetable due to COVID-19. The Team has also been reading Fr. James Mallon's excellent book Divine Renovation. Currently, the team is evaluating potential "belonging programs" such as Alpha, ACTS Retreat, Arise Together in Christ, Christ Life, and Relit. We aim to have a recommendation to the parish soon.
