At the Heart of Our Community
St. Michael’s Episcopal Church is found in the heart of Auburn, ME among an alternative school, three other churches and a diverse population of God’s people. Our families come from Auburn, Lewiston and many surrounding towns.
We cherish our Sunday morning worship with children singing and learning, an adult choir sharing Wonder, Love and Praise through our Holy Eucharist, and ministries that carry us through the week to energize our faith.
