St. Ann’s 20s & 30s Group
The 20s & 30s Group of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church is an “affinity group” or “small group” for members of the young adult generation of the parish.
We come from diverse backgrounds and have had different life experiences, yet we are equally committed to living meaningful Christian lives within the context of contemporary New York. While we are connected to the world outside of the church, we seek the support of one another to grow spiritually. We are grateful to have each other to share the particular joys and challenges faced by people of faith in our age group, even as we remain deeply connected to the larger community of fellow parishioners and friends at St. Ann’s.
We meet regularly at locations throughout the city and at the church, generally on the first Wednesday of the month. We plan social activities, organize service opportunities, and support the mission of the church in lots of ways. Planning seems to be a lot of fun. Take a look at one of their planning meetings.
