About Us

BELIEFS

 

We have faith in God the Blessed Trinity, and faith in Jesus Christ as the incarnate Son of God, and our Savior.

 

We have faith in the Church as the Body of Christ, proclaiming his Gospel, and doing the deeds of mercy and loving kindness.

 

We have faith in the Holy Bible as the Word of God, teaching everything we need to know for salvation.  

 

We have faith in the Sacraments of the Church as true means of grace, nourishing the souls of Godʻs people.

FOCUS

 

We place great emphasis on deeds of love and mercy, but we seek to do these deeds in a spirit of prayer.  St. Anneʻs is a gathering place for prayer, and everyone can feel that Spirit.  It permeates our worship, and everything we do.

Worship here is "formal," which does not mean "stiff," but liturgical.  The form we follow is the liturgy provided in the Book of Common Prayer. 

PRACTICES

 

We host Mass Rite I and Mass Rite II in our two Sunday services.

We provide outreach in the community, offering visitations and communion for those who are ill or hospitalized. 

 

Working with the CASA and Kairos programs offers opportunities to reach the hungry, less fortunate, homeless, and imprisoned.

Food Ministry (Monday and Friday afternoons), Food Pantry (Tues, Weds, Thurs 9:30-11:30 am), and Our Fatherʻs Table (Saturdays, 11;30 in Parish Hall).
