Welcome To The Saint Ann’s Parish Website
This year’s Giving Tree will be going up over Thanksgiving weekend and you will have the opportunity to spread joy to guests at the Covenant Shelter in New London, recipients of aid from Old Lyme Social Services and a family sponsored by the Child and Family Agency. Once the tree is up, and the tags are all displayed on the tree, please consider taking a tag, filling the request and returning the item(s) to the church by December 10.
December will be a busy month here at Saint Ann’s.
December 3 is the first Sunday of Advent and it is a custom here to make Advent wreaths between the services and after the 10:30 service. Come and adorn your home with your own handmade wreath.
December 10 will be our annual Alternate Giving Fair, between the services and after the 10:30 service. Come and give in a little bit different way than traditional presents! The ministries represented will again be those from our Sewing Room: Days for Girls, Seamen’s Church Institute, Camp Hispaniola, Layette Ministry, Prayer Shawl Ministry and The National Association of Episcopal Schools (Haiti). Also we will again have supplies to make Christmas cards to be sent to recovering military personnel and cookie decorating, make one for yourself and one to be delivered to shut-ins!
December 17 brings a special celebration of the retirement of Dick Lamourine, our longtime Building and Grounds employee. Dick has worked tirelessly for many years and we are so happy to celebrate him and wish him well in his retirement.
Later that day, at 5:00 pm, please consider joining us for A Service of Lessons and Carols. Enjoy beautiful, peaceful, candlelight music and take a time for yourself in this busy season.
Please know that there is a Church-owned camera in the office that is available for anyone to use during any events so that we will have photos to share!
