New Heights Fundraising Gala
Saturday, October 1 – 6:00 pm
At the Brooklyn Historical Society
128 Pierrepont Street, Brooklyn Heights
You’re all invited!
NEW HEIGHTS is a community event to benefit St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church as we celebrate our neighbors, support our mission, and preserve our historic buildings. We invite you to take part in and enjoy this great occasion with us – or to support the church with a donation, if you cannot join us.
The evening will feature food, drink, a silent auction, special musical guests, and the inaugural presentation of the “Spirit & Service” awards honoring Brooklyn Borough President, Eric L. Adams, and Saint Ann’s School Associate Head of School Emerita, Mrs. Linda Kaufman.
We urge you, your friends and all you know to stand with us at an exciting time in our history. St. Ann’s is a spiritual home to many and a bona fide commons and community resource for a variety of organizations. Our partners include the Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn Folk Festival, String Orchestra of Brooklyn, Bowery Presents, and Brooklyn Heights Association. Forum @ St. Ann’s events have featured New York Foundation for the Arts Fellows and Brooklyn-based artists, as well as concerts, readings, and panel discussions on immigration, education, and housing.
Your support will help us continue to assist to our neighbors in need through the Volunteers of America Operation Backpack, New York Cares Coat Drive and CAMBA Toys for Joy programs. Your generosity will also sustain our efforts to feed the hungry, including our weekly “Sandwich Sundays” program, which delivers grab-and-go meals for drop-in guests of CAMBA’s Gathering Place in East Brooklyn, and our community meals offered in our parish hall at various times throughout the year.
And, of course, we remain committed to preserving our landmark church, which is on the National Register of Historic Places and a New York State and City historic landmark.
With your help, St. Ann & the Holy Trinity will continue along an upward trajectory of community mission and service!
Please register here for NEW HEIGHTS tickets or make a contribution.

Sunday School resumes with changes and additions that add up to an exciting program for Fall 2016. There are now two Sunday School sections, one for the Pre-K/K group and one for older youth. We are also starting a new choir and new confirmation class. At least once a month, all the kids will all be together, either for Choir, Sandwich Sunday, or a Christmas pageant rehearsal. For more information contact Mo. Kate at 718-875-6960.

Dr. Matthew Burdette, our seminarian intern from The General Theological Seminary, will lead “Sacred Conversations on Race,” discussions prompted by recent and ongoing incidents of violence and dignity violations against people of color, and our commitment to the value of every person. They are intended to create a context in which people can speak and listen, learn about others’ experiences, and cooperate in addressing racism. All are welcome.
