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 is a very important role in an Episcopalian parish. The Eucharist is always celebrated at any worship service.
We are often known as the church bridge between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism.
Our strong belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and our liturgical worship practice provide us with the description as a bridge between the two bodies of Christians.
As you enter, you will notice an atmosphere of worship and reverence. Our churches vary in size and architecture, but your eye is carried to the altar or holy table, and to the cross. So our thoughts as Episcopalians are taken at once to Christ and to God whose house the church is.
In the pew you will find a red book called Book of Common Prayer which contains our liturgy or form of worship we use. You will find a blue book called THE HYMNAL which contains our hymns.
You may wonder when to sit, or stand, or kneel. The general rule is to stand to sing, our affirmation of faith in the Creed, and the reading of the Gospel. We sit during readings from the Bible and the sermon. We kneel for the confessional prayer and Eucharistic prayer following the singing of the Sanctus to show our gratefulness to God for accepting us as children or as an act of humility before God. This is especially done during the Eucharistic Prayer and the closing prayer before the Benediction+.
When you visit an Episcopalian church, you will be respected and a welcomed guest. The Anglican worldwide church is the largest Protestant church with over 85,000,000 baptized and confirmed members.
Our priests and people will welcome you totally in the love and fellowship of our Savior Jesus Christ. Come and find out!
We use the Apostles and Nicene Creeds as our Profession of Faith- what we believe. These are located in the Book of Common Prayer. We recite the Nicene Creed during Eucharistic rites and Apostles Creed in Morning Prayer liturgy.
We take the Eucharist or Holy Communion very serious in the Episcopal Church(Anglican Church). You will see why this is so when you attend St. Peter's! It is what we become as we partake of the Body(bread) and Blood(wine) of Christ in His Death and Resurrection.+
Every baptized Christian is encouraged to receive Holy Communion at the altar rail either by kneeling or by standing. If you just wish to receive a blessing from the priest simply cross your arms across your chest and he will give you a blessing.
MAY THE PEACE OF GOD WHICH SURPASSES ALL HUMAN UNDERSTANDING, KEEP YOUR HEART AND YOUR MIND ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN CHRIST JESUS+
