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 in this landscape since 1883. 

Our current church building was dedicated in 1956 and renovated and enlarged in 2019. For the first time since 1956, we are not worshipping in our church building. We are in the time of COVID-19, and our lives have changed forever. It is a time to deepen our faith and stay connected.

 

The sign on our front yard reads, "The voice of prayer is never silent." Prayer courses through us like the waters of the estuary on which we sit. Prayer is our lifeline to God and to one another. Prayer is as vital as the air we breathe and the water we drink.

In the midst of uncertainty and death, we know that love is contagious, and that resilience and hope are stronger than any fear of the unknown we possess. May our prayers this season of COVID-19 be our consolation and our faith be our strength and guide. In the words of Hymn 594, "God grant us the wisdom and courage for the facing of this hour, for the living of these days.”

 

Stay connected! Pray with us.
