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
