St. Peter's by the Sea Episcopal was built in 1897 from a bequest by Nannie Dunlap Conoroe, widow of George. Built on Christian Hill so that its cross would be visible to sailors at sea, the Church was designed by George C. Burns and built by Edward Blaisdell of York. The stained glass windows were designed and built by the Connick Studios of Boston.
The Library in Ogunquit was given by Nannie also and its design similar to St. Peter's.

Worship services with Eucharist are held at 8:00 am and 10:00 am each Sunday between June 11, 2017 and September 24, 2017 . In addition to the beautiful liturgy, a special music program is provided each Sunday to enhance Episcopal worship. Our regular presiding clergy of 3 priests are known for their dynamic preaching abilities in the community. Our choir sings at designated 10 am services.
Following the 10 am service, we host a Fellowship Hour of food, drinks, and conversation at the adjacent historic Marmion house, the rectory for our priests. Oceanside, it offers beautiful views of the Atlantic while enjoying drink and conversation. The picture below is the Marmion House!
