Established in 1705, Saint Anne's Episcopal Church continues the tradition of worship, service, learning, and fellowship that began when the first congregation of faithful Christians gathered here in Appoquinimy more than three hundred years ago and named their church Saint Anne's. As we did then, so we do now, we invite everyone to come and experience the saving grace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Come and see. Everyone is welcome.

Pentecost

The season after Pentecost, according to the calendar of the church year (BCP, p. 32). It begins on the Monday following Pentecost, and continues through most of the summer and autumn. It may include as many as twenty-eight Sundays, depending on the date of Easter. This includes Trinity Sunday which is the First Sunday after Pentecost. The BCP provides proper collects and readings for the other Sundays of the season. These propers are numbered and designated for use on the Sundays which are closest to specific days in the monthly calendar, whether before or after. For example, Proper 3 is designated for use, if needed, on the Sunday closest to May 25. Proper 29 is designated for use on the Sunday closest to Nov. 23. Prior to the 1979 BCP, Sundays in this long period of the church year were identified and counted in terms of the number of Sundays after Trinity Sunday instead of the number of Sundays after Pentecost. This period is also understood by some as "ordinary time," a period of the church year not dedicated to a particular season or observance, as in the Roman Rite adapted after Vatican II. See Ordinary Time.
Historic Old Saint Anne's

Located on the corner of S. Broad Street and St. Anne's Church Road, Middletown, Delaware
Established in 1705 in Appoquinimy (present day Middletown and Odessa), Saint Anne's Church has two historic sanctuaries in which to worship: the Town Church (which was completed in 1888) and Old St. Anne's Church (which was completed in 1768). Built on top of a hill at the head of one of the branches of Appoquinimink Creek, Old Saint Anne's Church is a beautiful 18th century American church building that stands surrounded by majestic trees and Saint Anne's historic cemetery. Special worship services are offered at Old Saint Anne's Church throughout the year on Sundays and Christian holy days. Please check the Church Calendar for our worship schedule. Private and community tours of the Old Saint Anne's are available by appointment. For more information, please contact the Church Office at 302-378-2401.
