Established in 1705, Saint Anne's Episcopal Church continues the tradition of worship, service, learning, and fellowship that began when the first congregation of faithful Christians gathered here in Appoquinimy more than three hundred years ago and named their church Saint Anne's. As we did then, so we do now, we invite everyone to come and experience the saving grace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Come and see. Everyone is welcome.

Easter

The feast of Christ's resurrection. According to Bede, the word derives from the Anglo-Saxon spring goddess Eostre. Christians in England applied the word to the principal festival of the church year, both day and season. 1) Easter Day is the annual feast of the resurrection, the pascha or Christian Passover, and the eighth day of cosmic creation. Faith in Jesus' resurrection on the Sunday or third day following his crucifixion is at the heart of Christian belief. Easter sets the experience of springtime next to the ancient stories of deliverance and the proclamation of the risen Christ. In the west, Easter occurs on the first Sunday after the full moon on or after the vernal equinox. Easter always falls between Mar. 22 and Apr. 25 inclusive. Following Jewish custom, the feast begins at sunset on Easter Eve with the Great Vigil of Easter. The Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates Easter on the first Sunday after the Jewish pesach or Passover (which follows the spring full moon). Although the two dates sometimes coincide, the eastern date is often one or more weeks later. 2) Easter Season. See Great Fifty Days.

 

Historic Old Saint Anne's

St. Anne's has been blessed to have two buildings in which to worship, the town church and the historic Old St. Anne's (OSA) Church. OSA is a beautifully-restored building surrounded by majestic trees and a cemetery on rolling hills. Several family members of current parishioners are at rest in the cemetery and OSA is deeply meaningful to those who have been attending services there for years. From time to time we have services at the historic location.
