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 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 Evening Prayer is said the first Wednesday of the month, and a service of the Holy Eucharist is offered on all other Wednesdays at 6:00 pm.

Episcopal Church 101
All are welcome to a 3-session mini-course on the Episcopal Church. Newcomers to St. Ann’s and to the Episcopal Church are especially encouraged to join us on two Sundays, May 10 and 17 at 10:15 am (between our two morning services) and again on Wednesday, May 20 at 6:30 pm (following the 6:00 pm Holy Eucharist).
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.
