Take a break from your morning and spend a little time in prayer. Each week we will gather in the church for morning prayer from the Book of Common Prayer and pray the Daily Office.

Members of our community gather each Thursday evening for a simple celebration of Holy Communion. We spend a little time listening and to discussing to the scripture readings followed by a sharing in the Eucharist. All are welcome to worship and pray with us.

Faith & Books Discussion Group:
Tuesday, September 27, 7:00 p.m.

We’re excited to announce a new discussion and social group at St. Anne’s entitled Faith & Books Discussion Group. Featuring fiction and non-fiction books, the group will read works by a wide-range of authors that either explicitly or implicitly engage with the themes of faith and theology. These informal gatherings will be a time for participants to socialize and share in conversation about books and what insights they offer into the life of faith.

Facilitated by Fr. Don, our first discussion will feature the work of parishioner and award-winning author Carole Giangrande. Published in 2019, Carole’s book The Tender Birds, is an engaging read that delves into the lives of two people who wrestle with the secrets of their past while longing for forgiveness and peace. We are delighted to welcome Carole with us and to have an enjoyable conversation whereby we contemplate how her book sheds light on faith and spiritual life.

The Tender Birds may be purchased from your local independent bookshop, the publisher’s website, Indigo, Amazon.ca. We hope you will join us.

Upcoming titles in the series include Annie Dillard’s Holy the Firm, the short stories of Flannery O’Connor, and Albert Camus’ well-known work, The Stranger. You won’t want to miss these discussions, even if you don’t get a chance to read the books. For more information, email Fr. Don at don.beyers@saintanne.ca.

This month's meal includes:


Introduction to Liturgy and Sacraments:
Wednesday, October 26, November 2 & 9
7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Anglicans, like many other Christians, talk a lot about liturgy and sacraments. Unfortunately, many of us have never heard of these words and hardly know what they mean. Even if we have heard them before, they still seem to be a mystery to us.

Join Fr. Don for a four-part series on liturgy and sacraments starting late October and in early November. Engaging and interactive, each session will explore the meaning, history, and contemporary theology of the Church on liturgy and sacraments. Whether you are new to Anglicanism or a long-time member, you are welcome to join us. For more information, email Fr. Don at don.beyers@saintanne.ca. Registration details will be announced soon.
