Service and Outreach

Ministry Map

Each week, our worship ends with the words “Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.” Fed with spiritual food, we go back out into the world to put our faith into action. Members of St. Anne’s love and serve God through hands-on outreach with mission partners, both locally and across the globe.

Are you looking for a way to serve your parish, local communities, or the world? Our Ministry Map lists contacts for all of the outreach ministries at St. Anne’s. You can download a copy here.


Local

Church Service League

The Church Service League (CSL) is open to parish women who wish to contribute to charitable causes through work with their hands. Throughout the year, CSL coordinates local outreach opportunities. Annual efforts range from providing bags and lists of supplies needed for women and children fleeing domestic abuse to raising money to give to local groups. CSL raises money through an annual sale in December.
