The Rev. John Ineson, our Supply Priest through July 5, is a well known long time resident of the Midcoast, having moved to Maine with his wife, Hannah, in 1972. As a musician, he entertained in local clubs for many years while serving Episcopal churches throughout the Diocese of Maine as supply priest, interim rector or guest preacher. His recording, Somewhere in Maine, was used by Maine Public Television’s Mainebook program as its theme song. Sail to Us, Columba, written for St. Columba’s, Boothbay Harbor, while he served there during the summer of 2011, has become that parish’s theme song. In the fall of 2012, Ineson recorded From the Heart, a CD of his spiritual songs.

John was a former Interim Priest at St. Margaret’s, and has celebrated at St. Margaret’s on many occasions for the past 25 years or more. He has also served as Chaplain of Colby College, Waterville; Rector of St. Andrew’s, Newcastle; Vicar of St. Barnabas, Augusta; and is presently the Seasonal Assistant at St. Mark’s, Marco Island, Florida, where the parish’s bulletin lists him as “Seasoned Assistant.” He has been an Episcopal Priest for 50 years.
