Worship and Study
St. Ann’s offers opportunities for worship throughout the week, including a service especially friendly for children.
Early Church, Sundays at 9:30 am – Early Church offers an opportunity for folks and families on the go to worship early on Sunday morning at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity. The service is kid-friendly and just a half-hour long, including Holy Eucharist. Early Church makes it easier for us to welcome people of all ages to become part of our community. Members and friends of St. Ann’s can help support this effort to grow by spreading the word among the earlier risers you know!. (Sunday School, now on summer hiatus until September 2017, follows Early Church, from 10:15 am to 11:00 am.)
Holy Eucharist, Sundays at 11:15 am – St. Ann’s main service with Communion takes place every Sunday. When a second priest is present, this service includes the laying on of hands and anointing for those who desire prayers for healing.
Weekday Services – A service of the Holy Eucharist is offered on all Wednesdays at 6:00 pm.
Enhancing Your Faith
We Are Pilgrims: An Adult Formation Series
Led by the Rev. Craig Townsend, Associate for Faith Formation
Sundays at 10:25 am and 12:45 pm
To say that life is a pilgrimage is not to suggest that we are journeying towards God, for God in Christ accompanies us always, every step of the way. It is instead to argue that attending to this companionship in faith is what allows is to see the holiness of our everyday life journeys. Sometimes it helps, though, to step outside our lives to undertake a physical journey with a holy goal to remember that we are constant pilgrims. The Rev. Craig Townsend, Associate for Faith Formation, invites us to contemplate the idea, the history, and the specificity of pilgrimage(s). This adult formation series is open to all.
September 24 ― We are Pilgrims: Overview of Pilgrimage
October 22 ― Pilgrimage in the Old Testament
November 12 ― St. Paul as Pilgrim
December 17 ― Pilgrimage in the Gospels
Wednesday Bible Study
All are welcome at our weekly Bible Study. We gather on Wednesdays at 12:15 pm in the Parish House for a 45-minute exploration of a selected passage of scripture. All who can are welcome and encouraged to join us.
For the infant or child to be baptized, both, or at least one, parent must themselves be baptized. Godparents should definitely be Christian, or if not, at least one should be Episcopalian. Adult candidates must acknowledge a genuine desire to become a Christian and attend a series of pre-baptism instruction. Parents, godparents, and sponsors undertake this preparation on behalf of infants and children to be baptized. Baptisms take place at the Easter Vigil (the night before Easter Sunday) or during a Sunday service on a few prescribed days during the year. The service of baptism can be found in The Book of Common Prayer. To discuss baptism, contact the Rector.
Parishioners are encouraged to include funeral plans and other final arrangements in their wills. The deceased need not have been a member of St. Ann’s. For all arrangements, contact the Rector.
