Making St. Ann's Shine

Please plan to stay after the July 14th service to lend a hand in cleaning up our grounds: weeding, pruning, spreading mulch-- you know, summer upkeep. Bring garden gloves & rakes.
We'll have the iced tea & coffee to help keep you cool! Many thanks to those already hard at work on our lawns & gardens

SOS: Sharing our Success
The Chicago Diocese asked St. Ann’s to host a group from the College for Congregational Development, a training program for local church leaders who visit selected churches in the north-central area to learn about each church’s culture. Vestry members talked a bit about St. Ann’s worship services, programming, & community engagement. And now, we want to share with YOU that these church leaders were tremendously impressed with our programs and outreach, especially the ways in which we are reaching out into the community through TSSL, events such as Pride Fest, & more. We heard many compliments--from the beauty of our physical spaces to the vibrant involvement of so many in our parish. Kudos to all who for many years have faithfully worked to support & sustain St. Ann’s--& to our newer members who so readily “lean in” to our mission and work.
