St. Saviour is an historical Episcopal church. The oldest part of the church was begun in 1876; later parts were added through 1901, including the renowned collection of stained glass windows by Tiffany and others. The parish is still active today, and we invite you to visit for a tour, for worship, or just for a moment of quiet respite in your day. During the tourist season (June - October), the church is open daily from about 8:30 - 5:00 for self-guided tours. Guided tours Sunday 11:15 (after the 10:00 Eucharist) and other times by appointment. The Church office (next door) is open Tuesday-Friday 8:30 - 1:30 year-round. May God continue to bless you!

We stopped by to look at the beautiful stained glass windows - gorgeous. The church structure itself is amazing, all the exposed beams are something to look at. Great for a short stop - worth the time.

Stopped by for a quick visit while heading to lunch nearby. Beautiful church and nice place to rest for a bit and admire the design. Listened for a few moments to a tour group that was inside when we arrived.

They were having Sunday service when we stopped by so we didn't want to crash that. We stopped by the next day and the church doors were locked. I guess you have to time your visits otherwise you'll only be able to do what we...More

Happened upon St. Saviour's Church quite by accident. As is often the case for travelers, discoveriers by chance are often the more satisfying and rewarding. St. Saviour's Episcopal Church at 41 Mr. Desert Street is the oldest, largest & tallest public building on Mt. Desert...More

We stepped into this church while wandering through the town of Bar Harbor. Very pretty church and interesting cemetery. The stained glass windows are beautiful.

If only for a short tour, the interior of this church and its historic cemetery is worth the visit. Tiffany stained-glass windows abound; they alone would make a visit worthwhile!

Classic old New England style church, notable for the beautiful Tiffany stained glass windows. Free tour by local volunteer if you want.

The stained glass windows are awesome. Some of the windows are from the 19th century & made by Tiffany. The church welcomes you. It is very peaceful inside.
