Welcome to St. Anne’s!
Our faith community welcomes you! We are a vibrant, friendly parish, steeped in tradition while following the Holy Spirit into the future. We strive to be Christ’s hands and compassionate heart in this world and invite you to join us. As well as Sunday worship and hospitality, there are many opportunities for fellowship and activities during the week. We look forward to meeting you!
It’s that time of year! Time for St. Anne’s annual AppleFest!
Please join us on Saturday, September 29 as we celebrate the fall season with all kinds of delicious apple items — applesauce sundaes, apple pies and muffins and other baked goods. Buy baked goods to take home AND join us for breakfast and lunch! Lots of activities too! A Silent Auction, a Paper Bag Raffle, Flea Market, and our Grand Prize of two separate gift card collages, each worth $1,000. Tickets for the Grand Prize are available at church and from church members. $5.00 per ticket or 5 tickets for $20. Please call us 454-8016.
The fun begins at 7:00 a.m. and runs until 1:00 p.m., when we draw the winners of the raffles. You don’t have to be present to win.
We appreciate the community’s continued support of our church and look forward to seeing you Sept 29!
From Rev. Sara Gavit
Sexual assault and sexual harassment are currently in the news — a lot. For people who have experienced or witnessed sexual violence, the accounts in the media and conversations with others can trigger anxiety and pain. You may be reliving your own assault again and again. You may feel as though you have been carrying your own cross for years. If you are survivor and are feeling overwhelmed, please call me at 454-2800. All conversations are confidential.
I also encourage folks who are struggling with this kind of trauma, or any trauma, to see professional help. You are not alone and you don’t have to carry this burden alone.
The Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault has lots of resources available. Call 1-800-871-7741 or check out the website at: www.mecasa.org
Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and carrying a heavy load and I will give you rest”.
