Welcome to Saint Ann’s Parish Website

Saint Ann’s is a vibrant and inclusive parish church located where the waters of the Connecticut River and the the banks of Long Island Sound converge. This is a parish where the waters of Baptism and the Holy Spirit also converge to form an active, inclusive, and welcoming community for all of God’s people. Our corporate worship services are both ancient and new, as we are an Episcopal Church rooted in our Anglican tradition. At the same time we welcome all who come into our community seeking to know Jesus as the Christ, and to deepen their relationship with God and their neighbor.

We love mission, music, pastoral care and education for all ages, as we share our stories with each other. Wherever you are along your spiritual path – devoted worshiper, seeker, doubter, or just trying to live your life and are curious, we pray that you find through your time with God’s people at Saint Ann’s, the life God desires for you.

Thank you for joining us. We are glad you are here. Join us for a worship service; and if you seek deeper involvement join the altar guild, the choir, help in a mission activity, join us in a class or offer your God-given talent and teach one !!

You are most Welcome at Saint Ann’s!

The Rev’d Canon Mark K.J. Robinson
Rector

REMINDER !!!!!!
Its time to start collecting supplies for Camp Hispaniola!

Each year Saint Ann’s collects art supplies for the Vacation Bible School (VBS) camp organized by Marc-Yves Regis. Marc is our Haitian friend who gives back to his homeland by offering a week-long camp for children. One camp is in the Dominican Republic and one is in Haiti. We help by purchasing t-shirts for all the campers and providing art supplies. If the spirit moves you, please donate the following:pipe cleaners, glue, markers, crayons, watercolor paints, brushes, face paints, glitter, beads, gimp for the beads, foam shaped stickies.unnamed
There will be a collection area in the Griswold Room. The first camp is in Haiti from July 13 to July 17 (Marc will be leaving July 10) and the second is in the Dominican from July 27 to July 31 (Marc will be leaving July 24). The sooner we have the supplies, the easier it is for Marc to send them down ahead of himself so he doesn’t have to carry them on his flight down!
Thank you frontier thoughtfulness & generosity!!
