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!

Wednesday Services

Every week, St. Anne’s offers two prayer services on Wednesdays.

Noon Day Prayer is a great way to take time out of the middle of the day, the middle of the week, and spend a few minutes in prayer.  We meet in the Choir Room in the church hall for this quiet, contemplative worship.  It only last 15 minutes, and yet it is grounding and helps us center our lives in the midst of all the busyness.

Evening Prayer begins at 5:00. This is another opportunity to pray in a quiet setting following the wisdom found in the Book of Common Prayer.  Monastic communities have prayed “Vespers” for centuries and this evening prayer service allows us the chance to meet God in that end-of-the-day time.

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

The Season of Lent

Lent begins Ash Wednesday, March 6 and continues through Holy Week, April 14-20.  The 40 days of Lent (excluding Sundays) represent the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness after his baptism. This is a time in the church year when many Christians enter into a sacred period of inner reflection, deep prayer, devotion. Repentance is also a theme of this season as we examine those relationships — with God, our neighbors and ourselves — that need repair and healing.

The Gospel readings appointed for Sundays in Lent are stories about Jesus as he moves towards Jerusalem and ultimately, the Cross.

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