We love to celebrate all of God’s blessings! Because we are family, we find joy in gathering to share a milestone 90th birthday, a baptism, a Mardi Gras celebration, a wedding anniversary, a blessing of the animals, our annual Saint Anne Sunday, and any other occasion that allows us to remember and celebrate God’s bounty in our lives.
Visiting Saint Anne is like being welcomed home. Our goal is to assist and encourage newcomers to transition from being a visitor to feeling like part of the family. It begins with genuine hospitality at that first greeting and continues with relationship-building opportunities that help newcomers become incorporated into the life of the parish in ways that meet their spiritual needs.
Sunday morning services are at 8:00 am and 10am. The 8am service (Rite II,
which means modern language) is a quiet, more contemplative service that is
completely said. There is no music. Our 10:00 am service (Rite II) offers hymn
singing, organ and piano music, and some chanting. It is also livestreamed on Facebook.
Our Wednesday Evening Healing service is at 6:00 pm. It is a Rite I service
(i.e., traditional language) that offers prayers for healing. It is like our
Sunday 8am service in that it is completely said.
Praying, singing, preaching, and rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.
When you visit one of our services, just fill out the Newcomers’ Card located at the back of the church or ask an usher for assistance, and we’ll get in touch with you ASAP. If you share your
email address with us, we will keep you informed (and we won’t share it
with anyone without your permission). Also, keep an eye on our website’s
calendar for upcoming events.
There are at least two different kinds of “membership.” There’s one which involves paperwork, etc., but we believe that’s actually not as important as being an individual or family who chooses to participate in the larger life of the parish community. This is a “member” who enjoys the variety of fellowship and worship opportunities offered by the community as a whole. This is a “member” who engages in the everyday life of the parish community. It’s easy!
No! Though some people do like to “dress up” for church, we encourage folks to wear whatever they are comfortable wearing! God doesn’t mind, and neither do we.
Absolutely. Just contact the church office and we will assist you with that process.
