There are many opportunities for involvement at Saint Ann’s. Several committees within the parish serve to coordinate activities.

 The Stewardship Committee:

The Stewardship Committee is composed of a diverse group of parishioners whose task is to inspire within the congregation a more vibrant sense of what Christian stewardship means in the midst of today’s cultural and economic climate. Theologically, stewardship is the intentional blending of gratitude and responsibility, giving and funding, worship and ethics. From this grounding, the Stewardship Committee directs the annual pledge appeal and it organizes ad hoc supplemental programs throughout the year. Each year a stewardship mailing goes out to the congregation.

The Vestry is the principle governing board of the parish. It determines the annual budget and oversees all programs, organizations, activities, committees, and staff.  The Vestry is comprised of four officers (Senior Warden, Junior Warden, Treasurer and Clerk) and seven members who serve as liaisons to parish committees.  All vestry members are elected by vote of the parish’s members at the Annual Meeting.   The Vestry meets on the third Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm. Meetings are open to all parishioners. If you are interested in serving on the Vestry please speak with one of the clergy or one of the officers.
