Who We Are

The people of St. Anne’s come from a variety of religious backgrounds. Some of us grew up Baptist, some Lutheran, some Roman Catholic: everyone is welcome here. We break bread, we struggle with important questions, we raise our children in the faith and face life’s difficulties and transitions together. We also celebrate and have fun, there’s a great deal of laughter in the halls of St. Anne’s. This is what community looks like.

Join us for a service on Sunday morning, for a class, for a small group gathering or meet us in the city as we build houses, feed the homeless, or tutor children. We are the hands of Jesus in the world.

St. Anne’s Day School and Enrichment Programs

St. Anne’s offers the highest standards of quality in early childhood education. In an environment of love and respect, each child is given the opportunity to expand their concept of the world. The Day School’s program provides for developmentally appropriate growth emotionally, cognitively, socially, physically, as well as spiritually.

Children are given the chance to initiate choices of activities, as well as having teacher initiated instruction times. The goals include increasing each child’s capacity to reason, and encouraging a spirit of inquiry in a creative learning environment.

Most of all, St. Anne’s Day School wants your child to know that he or she is a worthy person, acceptable and lovable just as God made him or her. Having a good self-concept and the opportunity to learn in this environment are gifts that last a lifetime.

St. Anne’s Day School works in collaboration with other schools throughout the United States who are inspired by the Reggio Approach to early childhood education.  For more from our Day School CLICK HERE

A MESSAGE FROM THE ABSALOM JONES CENTER FOR RACIAL HEALING
A CALL TO ACTION:
The Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing held a meeting on July 1, 2019 to address the concerns of immigration with a focus on detention camps in America. More than 35 people from various parishes and local organizations attended. Together, we came up with various “calls to action” to bring awareness to the inhumane conditions of detention camps, and to end their existence, especially for those who are too young to have a voice. Attached is the list of the actionable steps that you and your parish, friends and family can take to help end human detention camps. Please feel free to reply with any ideas you may have, or to share with us actions you may already have taken. Together, we will make a change!

LOMBARD MENNONITE PEACE CENTER PROCESS


Our work with the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center will continue when we can once again gather as needed for the in-person sessions. For now, we are limited in our numbers, which won’t work for the process. We look forward to getting back to it!

Parishioner Jim Wylie shared this message:
Thank you so much for initiating this powerful program. As I said Saturday, I think doing so took a lot of courage. I, and everyone I have spoken to, was moved by the experience. In addition, all, including myself, now seem to recognize the necessary part that each must play to contribute to a Healthy Congregation. I look forward to the February Workshop and other aspects of the Healthy Congregation.

For an idea of what is coming up when we can return to our work, see the pre-shutdown Project schedule: CLICK HERE.
