St. ANNA'S
Episcopal Church

St. Anna’s purpose is to lead people into a growing relationship with Christ, to declare the liberating power of the Gospel, and to be the church that demonstrates the love of Christ through works of justice, mercy, empowerment and hospitality.

All are welcomed.
None are shunned.

We are a diverse congregation and our slogan is "All are welcomed. None are shunned." Our worship style is ornate with deep ritual yet it remains warm and inviting.

Rector Search Update

A second round of interviews via Zoom with rector candidates has been completed. We are in the process of assessing the candidates based on the criteria established by parishioners and other stakeholders of St. Anna's last Spring through the online survey and focus groups, and as articulated in the Parish profile. We are getting very close! The Search Committee asks for your prayers as we approach the late stages of this process.

Rector Search Continues

The search for St. Anna’s new Rector continues. Our application period officially closed on January 19th. The Search Committee has begun conducting initial interviews via Zoom with candidates who satisfied fundamental requirements for the position. As a reminder, Episcopal Church and Diocesan policy provides that no individual information about rector candidates may be shared to protect the privacy of candidates and the feelings of their current parishioners. The Search Committee is working diligently to vet the candidates to ensure we identify the best one to recommend to the Vestry, which has sole authority for the Parish to elect a new rector. We ask your prayers for wisdom and discernment.
