Welcome to Saint Ann’s Parish Website


Dear friends, 

We are happy you have found us on the web!  We invite you to browse around on this site and learn about us and how we are joining God in ministry in our community and beyond. Our Community Gardeners  grow produce for the Shoreline Soup Kitchen and Pantries.  Our Sewing Ministry workers make hundreds of articles of clothing (annually) for needy children in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Our Nearly New Shop enables us to recycle good used clothing back into the community for another’s use, providing funds for our mission. > Old Lyme is an historic community featuring areas of captivating beauty along the Connecticut shore and Connecticut River.  We are blessed with a beautiful church and grounds, which create a sense of peace and tranquility. We pray you will join us for one of our worship services on Sunday (8:30 & 10:30) or Wednesday (11:30) and be nourished and refreshed by God’s word and sacrament.  We are deeply thankful for all that the Lord has done for us through his Son. Come and join us in this life of thanksgiving and praise!  Alleluia! Amen!






Blessing of an Animal

Almighty and Generous Providence
how great the variety of living things,
You have put at our disposal!
You told our first parents:
“I give you all the animals of the land.”
Some can be used as food,
or for labor or transportation,
but also for our companionship and recreation.

Bless this animal.
May it carry out the function it has been given
and may it aid us to think of You its Creator
and give praise and thanks to You forever.
We ask this in the name of Jesus our Lord.
