Welcome to Saint Ann's Parish

Welcome to Saint Ann’s Old Lyme, an Episcopal Church in Connecticut on the coasts of the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound. We have been a welcoming community on the shoreline since 1883. 

We invite you to come and see us at Saint Ann’s Sundays as we share the love of God in Jesus Christ. Join us during the week for community events, educational programs and fellowship opportunities. Learn about our commitment to addressing poverty, homelessness, refugee resettlement, food insecurity and climate change.


Be with us in person and virtually in discovering God’s abundance and joy. 


The Rev’d Dr. Anita Louise Schell, Rector

Saint Ann's

Mission Statement

We are a community of Christians,
open to all, who serve God in Jesus Christ through worship, education, mission and fellowship.

New Griswold Gallery Artist


We welcome new parishioner Howard Park exhibiting a collection of his paintings in the Griswold Room. Howard attended the Masters of Fine Arts program at Tufts University and studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He continued his studies in France at L’Ecole d’Art Decorative de Nice, where he won a prize in photography. His love of the sea led him to Connecticut to manage a boatyard and raise a family. He now owns HGPark Fine Art Conservation, focusing on restoration, fine art appraisals, including original oil paintings, works on paper, objects, etchings, murals and antique frames. Howard’s modern-impressionist oil and watercolor paintings portray his love of the sea and the ever changing landscapes. Don’t miss his beautiful exhibit.
