Raising a Tent
The parish has purchased a tent to use on occasions that require more space (weddings, receptions, etc.). We will be learning how to raise the tent this coming Saturday morning at 10. Please come - learn - have fun!
Sunday School Volunteers Needed

Preparations are underway for a new Sunday School year. We need some new helpers and teachers for the program. We also need a food coordinator. Contact Ryan Shelton if you'd like to help. 

No ministry in the parish is greater in its impact than our work with children. The time we spend with them is an investment in a lifetime of faith. Help us lay a good foundation. Great blessings surround this work!


Archbishop Alexander's Visit
Archbishop Alexander will be visiting St. Anne on the weekend of August 19-20. This is his first visit as bishop. Note the date. We want to have as many as possible at the service and festivities to welcome him on this great occasion. 

A monk of Mount Athos, an Oxford-Trained Scholar of the Church Fathers, a much published author and teacher - and Archbishop of the Diocese of the South - all of this in the person of Abp. Alexander Golitzin. 

Volunteers to bring foods for the Post-Vesper Meal on August 19, and for the Post-Liturgy Meal on August 20, are needed. Sign-up sheets are now in the Narthex. For questions or concerns, contact Elaine Morfas (317-748-3868) or morfas6@gmail.com  
Summer travels and schedule often lowers Church attendance. The Church financial needs continue at largely the same level all year long. Remember your support this summer. Many thanks!
