Thank you for stopping by to browse the St. Anne's Episcopal Church website!
Join us Sundays at 8AM or 9:30AM for worship services, with Christian education for all ages following the 9:30AM service. Everyone is welcome in this parish, no one is turned away.
I especially want to invite you to the services during this joyous Easter Season!
Mother's Day is this coming Sunday. We will have a reception after each of the two services to honor the mothers present in the Great Hall. We will not have a brunch on this occasion.
Please see the Worship page for some important news about our summer worship locations. This is a test to see how it works for us this summer.
We are sad for us, but celebrate with John Brooks as he finishes his time with us on Pentecost May 19 and then begins a new part of his life. John has accepted a new, full-time position as Organist-Choir Director at St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Bristol, Rhode Island. On May 19 you will want to be a part of celebrating John's time with us.
Calling a new rector is an important step in the near future of this parish. The Rector Search Committee was elected by the Vestry at a special meeting on May 2. The search committee members are: Ron Truitt, Franklin Brons, Kathy Cavanaugh, Seth Cosans, Nancy Koenig, Sonia Shackleford, Mark Tudor, Laurie Wolinski, Ethel Young. Alternates are Sue Tudor and Mark Cavanaugh. This group will be commissioned on Pentecost Sunday, May 19. They will also meet with the Bishop of Delaware on May 29. The Rev. Mark Sullivan is our consultant working with us from the Diocese of Delaware.
WOW! These are exciting days here at St. Anne's. Don't miss out on all that is happening.
We are grateful St. Anne's has been a part of the Middletown, Odessa, and Townsend communities for more than 300 years. It is both humbling and inspiring to worship in tradition which extends back to the early days of the colonies.
We welcome all persons to worship with us and to learn more about our community of faith. Though we may be at different points in our spiritual journeys, I hope that you might find a spiritual home here at St. Anne's.
You are welcome to join us in worship, education, outreach, ministry, and fun. See you on Sunday!
