Welcome to Saint Anne’s @ Home
We can now gather in person in small groups, properly registered! We also continue to gather online, so there are many choices for coming together. However we get together – virtually or in person – we are very much connected to one another! We draw comfort and strength from each other in a variety of ways which can be found on this page . . . so please join us as often as you can, and check this page for updates. Have something you’d like to share? Please send it to us.

Adult Formation in April
Join us Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. on Zoom
Sharing the Resurrection Online in the 21st Century
During Eastertide, we will hear accounts of how the disciples and early church began to share and spread the Gospel following Jesus’ resurrection in our worship services. The Gospel Writer Mark gives us a very brief account of how the words of the angel whom the women found on inside the empty tomb changed their worlds and thus became the first evangelists who shared the joy, terror, and hope of the resurrection. Two thousand years later, the story of the resurrection is still alive and active and reaches more people than at any other time in the history of the world. The ways in which the good news of Jesus’ victory over death and his resurrection are greater today with the help of modern technology.
On Sunday mornings, April 11-25, we will explore and discuss ways in which online technology is helping the church and its members share the hope of the resurrection with more of the world than ever before. We will watch and listen to a variety of videos, audio interviews, and podcasts that have gained in popularity for the preaching of the Gospel over the past decade with the explosion of the online tools and avenues. We will also discuss the drawbacks that the internet and social media have created which can make the spread of the Gospel harder and more difficult for the church.
Please join us on Zoom on Sunday mornings starting at 9:00am for our formation program and discussion. You can find the Zoom link below and in the Sunday morning email. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Tim at email@example.com
GIVING IS WORSHIP!
While we look for new ways to gather together for fellowship and worship (see below), we also look for ways to make it easier to continue to give. In the last few days some of you may have been laid off or furloughed, so continuing your pledge may be difficult or impossible at this moment. Please do not feel distressed about this decision. Know that you are in our prayers in these difficult days. Please reach out to the clergy to alert them to these circumstances.
For those of us who are still able, we invite you to take the opportunity to set up recurring giving online if you haven’t and/or take advantage of our new Text to Give option. This will help the parish tremendously. Even during this unprecedented time, and perhaps more than ever, the mission and ministry of the church must continue. If you would like to give online please use this button:

We continue to pray for those infected by the Coronavirus, both in our own country and around the world, for medical professionals, public health leaders, researchers, pharmaceutical communities, and government and Church leaders at home and abroad. As the Presiding Bishop shared in a recent message: “The next 30-60 days at the least are simply going to be unlike anything we have experienced in recent history, even including 9/11. The dilemma of what we know and what we don’t know will continue to complicate our decision making and our lives . . . Obedience to the moral primacy of love for the neighbor must direct us.”
