St. Anne's Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church in Calais, Maine

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!

Palm Sunday

 

April 14 is Palm Sunday. Holy Week begins with this worship service when we both celebrate Jesus triumphant entrance into Jerusalem and then hear the Passion story.  We hear how Jesus begins the week being honored by the crowd and ends up being scorned and ultimately executed.  Next Sunday is Easter — the joyous celebration of the Resurrection.  A lot happens in a week and we re-enact the powerful moments of this sacred story on Palm Sunday.

Please join us.  The service begins in the Parish Hall at 10:00 as the palms are blessed and we process into the Sanctuary.

For more information, call the church at 454-8016 or email us at: stannes04619@gmail.com

Holy Week

The time between Palm Sunday, April 14 and Easter on April 21 is known as Holy Week.  Christians all around the world honor this sacred time with special devotional practices, community worship and ritual and by retelling and re-enacting the story of Christ’s last week of earthly ministry.

Maundy Thursday service begins with Jesus and the disciples gathered for a meal and ends with Jesus’ betrayal and arrest.   Good Friday is the day when we grieve the death of Jesus on the cross.  Holy Saturday is an evening vigil that signals the dawning of Easter and the astonishing Resurrection.

At St. Anne’s, there is a Maundy Thursday service at 6:00 p.m. April 18 and a Good Friday service also at 6:00 p.m. on April 19.

Please join us in worship and fellowship as we live into this Holy Week and Easter.
