Easter is a joyous time of year, whether for religious reasons or for the rebirth and reawakening of nature during the springtime, but one of the most exciting parts is getting to share the day with people spending their first holiday away from home at a
Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast. I think of it as especially exciting, because my first experience in Kennebunkport was also for a holiday (although mine was Thanksgiving), so it seems natural that they too might fall in love with this community and its spectacular location in coastal Southern Maine. Maybe they’ll become our neighbors! But as excited as I get for Easter weekend, visitors are just as nervous about finding place to worship. Don’t worry, though, we’ve got it covered!
No matter your denomination, you’re sure to find the right place for you to worship on Easter Sunday. Several congregations sit just around the corner from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast. Village Baptist Church lies about half a dozen houses away on Maine Street, and if you walk a few doors further, you’ll hit United Church of Christ’s South Church (rather ironically located on North Street). Continuing on a little further, you’ll find the First Congregational Church. Presbyterian visitors might find a home at St. Andrew’s on Route 1 in Kennebunk. Nearby, you’ll find St. Martha’s, a Catholic congregation. And offering a spiritual contrast, it’s nearest neighbor is the Unitarian Universalist congregation. Sometimes, though, guests of our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast choose to worship slightly differently than they typically would, with a visit to the Franciscan Monastery. Though traditional Catholic mass is given, the atmosphere is notably different than many churches, as the facility is run by Lithuanian monks. However, the grounds are spectacular and especially on a religious holiday when many desire a connection to the blossoming natural world, the 7o riverside acres often call. But this list is hardly exhaustive, so if I’ve left something out (and you can be sure I have!), anyone at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is happy to help you find the perfect spot for you to celebrate Easter in the area.
