Worship and Visitor Information

The people of St. Ann's value the worship tradition of the Episcopal Church. Our Sunday worship is Holy Communion as proscribed by our Book of Common Prayer. Yet we distinguish ourselves in two ways:

First, we are solemn but not stuffy. Our posture and approach includes offering God praise in thankfulness and joy. Second, because of our worship space our services are intimate, yet there is a dignity that underlies what we do in giving praise and thanks to God.

St. Ann's has a long tradition of offering quality and diverse choral music. It is a mainstay of worship. Music at St. Ann's is unique as it maintains its Anglican distinction while offering other expressions of hymns and anthems that are pleasant and inspirational.

Our worship also reflects the concept of the word ‘liturgy’ - work of the people. The use of acolytes, Eucharistic ministers, intercessors and lectors is crucial. Music for worship often includes congregational responses. Members who are musicians are invited to play.

Our worship is characterized by our Episcopal tradition, our history of fine choral music and our hospitality that welcomes all people.
