Welcome to the online home of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church!
Epiphany greetings in the Name of Christ, the Light of the World!
We have celebrated our Lord’s birth as God incarnate in human flesh and blood, and now the Church moves from Christmas to Epiphany and beyond with remembrances of the Star of Bethlehem shining and the visit of the Magi on January 6th, followed by our Lord’s Baptism the Sunday after. In our readings of the Gospel in worship, the remainder of the Epiphany season brings us into the beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry, concluding with his Transfiguration atop an unnamed mountain. We read in Mark, chapter 9, that Jesus’ clothes turned “dazzling white,” and thus, the Light of Epiphany shines once again as the season draws to a close.
By the grace of God and with the guidance of our diocesan and civil authorities, we have been able to continue in-person services and, barring their complete prohibition, we will continue to do so implementing the recommended precautions of the Centers for Disease Control and the Diocese of Northern Indiana. It may be a while before we will be singing, shaking hands, and hugging like we used to, but we realize that our precautions may make that day come sooner.
If you wish to join us on Sunday morning in person, we celebrate with liturgies from The Book of Common Prayer – Holy Eucharist, Rite One at 8:00 a.m., and Holy Eucharist, Rite Two at 10:15 a.m. Physical distancing is observed and facial coverings are required due to the pandemic. The 10:15 service is streamed live on the St. Anne’s Facebook page and remains an option for those not comfortable attending in person. Whichever way you wish to join us, we pray that your time at St. Anne’s is a blessing to you.
The Light still shines, scattering the darkness and its many manifestations around the world. Thanks be to God!
The Rev. Ryan Fischer, Rector
