Thank you for stopping by to browse the St. Anne's Episcopal Church website!
I especially want to invite you to the services during this Pentecost Season! Join us Sundays at 8AM or 9:30AM for worship services. Everyone is welcome in this parish, no one is turned away.
This last Sunday, we were honored to have the Bishop of Delaware, The Right Reverend Wayne Wright, with us is our 9:30AM service. Those who were presented to the Bishop were:
Martin and Linnea Bradshaw
For Re-Affirmation of Baptismal Vows:
What a blessing to have these join our work and life as a parish here in Middletown.
Please see the Worship page for some important news about our summer worship locations. This is a test to see how it works for us this summer.
Remember to pray for our Rector Search Committee. The search committee members are: Ron Truitt, Co-chair; Franklin Brons; Kathy Cavanaugh; Seth Cosans; Nancy Koenig; Sarah Shackleford; Mark Tudor; Laurie Wolinski; Ethel Young. Alternates are Sue Tudor and Mark Cavanaugh. This group along with the Vestry met with Bishop Wright on May 29. The Rev. Mark Sullivan is our consultant working with us from the Diocese of Delaware.
SUMMER MUSIC - WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE HYMNS?
Which ones inspire you? We want to know as we plan music for the summer. Just email the office with the name of the hymn (or opening line of the text), or fill out the music form that we have left in the back of the church. Let's see how many of these we can sing this summer!
Our summer organist is Gary Mather. He will
be joining us this summer as our organist. Gary lives
right here in Middletown and has served as an organist in the Episcopal
Church for over 32 years, in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We look
forward to Gary's contribution to meaningful worship at St. Anne's. In
the 90s, Gary's interest in design and faux painting turned from a hobby
to becoming the owner of Mather & Smith Designs, doing primarily
architectural design painting work in both commercial and residential
areas. You may recognize his face as he also works at Lowe's paint
department here in Middletown. We look forward to enjoying beautiful
music this summer. Gary has already made musical contributions filling
in for us on a few recent occasions.
WOW! These are exciting days here at St. Anne's. Don't miss out on all that is happening.
We are grateful St. Anne's has been a part of the Middletown, Odessa, and Townsend communities for more than 300 years. It is both humbling and inspiring to worship in tradition which extends back to the early days of the colonies.
We welcome all persons to worship with us and to learn more about our community of faith. Though we may be at different points in our spiritual journeys, I hope that you might find a spiritual home here at St. Anne's.
You are welcome to join us in worship, education, outreach, ministry, and fun. See you on Sunday!
