Even in the year of the pandemic, when all has changed, historic St. Anne’s Parish will still mark Christmas with celebrations of joy and love. Whether you are already a long-time member of our parish family or are visiting us “virtually” for the first time, please join us for worship.
All of our services will be streamed on our YouTube page at the above times.
The Twelve Days of Christmas: Book Readings from St. Anne’s Parents and Families
Join us online for storybook readings during the 12 Days of Christmas. Make this a family time to hear and reflect on the Christmas story with 12 different books. Make a pot of tea, or cups of hot chocolate, enjoy sweet treats and move your Magi closer to your crèche. Watch on Christmas Day for the first book reading video to be premiered. A new video will be available every day.
Lessons and Carols
St. Anne’s is delighted to offer a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, based on the beloved tradition presented by King’s College, Cambridge. Through music and scripture, you will hear the story of our faith, from Adam and Eve’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden to the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please join us on-line at 5:30 PM, Sunday, January 3, 2021, for this beautiful worship experience.
Welcome to Advent! Welcome to these reflections, lovingly prepared and shared by members of our parish as company for our Advent journey. Advent can be a time of wonder and expectation, a time of encouragement and hope, if we let it–if we pause during this season to watch for, and wonder at, and open ourselves to what God still wants to do in the world, even through us, even now.

The Iron Rosary – Circle of Prayer
In 2016, we dedicated the fence surrounding the church to be an Iron Rosary, a Circle of Prayer, in the heart of Annapolis. For Advent, we mark this holy season of hope with our prayers to bring Light in the darkness. Join us, bringing the light of your heart to shine on our town. Make prayer cards at home using waterproof markers, or use the ones provided on the gate closest to Main Street. Say your prayer at the Iron Rosary and tie a ribbon on the fence. The prayers will be gathered weekly, laminated and tied to the fence.
Spread the light: Volunteers are needed to keep supplies stocked and to take prayers to the Iron Rosary for those that cannot come in person. To volunteer, contact Mary-Sophia Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All voices connecting with God are welcome at the Iron Rosary.
