Welcome to St. Michael’s in Auburn, Maine!
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.
A Neighborhood Comes Together at the Table
Pleasant St. has had different identities in the last 40 – 50 years. We see this image whenever we attend church then we scurry off to our own neighborhoods where we know our neighbors and share meals with them or help them out when they need it.
There are three churches in Pleasant St. which is under 1/2 mile long. Why don’t we know these neighbors. The image of today and of not long ago was one of drugs, vandalism and people begging for money for who knows what.
On Monday night August 27th, the 3 churches invited them over for a BBQ. Over 125 people came, ate, kids played and all shared their thoughts about their neighborhood. A giant white board was there for them to share their thoughts about the good, the bad and the ugly. And they did.
They stuck around for 2 hours and loved every minute of it. Now it is our duty to define the next step. You’ve seen the pictures, you’ve heard the stories or were one of the volunteers who were there. Give us your thoughts. “What can we do next to help our neighbors realize they can make their own neighborhood a safe and happy place?”
