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 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.

“Wise Aging” Group
There was another life that I might have had, but I am having this one. Kazuo Ishiguro
This fall, Mother Anne Richards will lead a group called “Wise Aging.” The group will meet in the church on six Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, beginning October 7, 2015. By way of brief presentations and conversation, we will explore topics related to aging: internalized ageism; loss; forgiveness, reconciliation and acceptance; our bodies and health; relationships; legacy; the spirituality of aging; and death. The focus of our time together will be on aging as a period of honesty, growth, liberation and increasing intimacy with God and the self. This group is open to all, regardless of age. If you can’t come to every meeting, come when you can.
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.
