Priest-in-Charge

The Rev. Douglas A. Beck, ObJN

Fr. Douglas found his spiritual home in the Episcopal Church as a young adult. After serving churches for thirty-five years as a musician and liturgist in parishes from Pennsylvania, to Washington DC and Northern Virginia to Maine, Douglas’ call to priestly ordination led him to first serve as Rector on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic and St. Augustine’s brought him back home to Maine where he has lived in Bangor since 2011. Fr. Douglas is delighted to serve God and the people of St. Augustine’s. Douglas’ ministry passions include preaching and liturgy, pastoral care, contemplative prayer and faith formation for all people. He is an avid enthusiast of the beauty that surrounds us here in Maine. Douglas enjoys spending time outdoors, creating visual art, creative writing and music. He also enjoys growing things from seed for his garden beds and reading anything he can get his hands on.
