For 314 years, St Mary Anne’s Episcopal Church and cemetery have been blessed sanctuaries for generations of North East and Upper Chesapeake Bay residents. Our current generation of parishioners derive comfort from our historic surroundings, traditional worship services, and most important—abounding faith in God.
We actively engage in both worship and mission. The Gospel message of Jesus Christ is faithfully preached from the pulpit, as we participate in weekly worship and partake in the Eucharist. Our commitment to the work of Christ in the world is evidenced by our dedicated outreach endeavors.
Each year, we renew this commitment with our annual Stewardship Campaign. We prayerfully reflect on our blessings and in thanksgiving, pledge to financially support the mission of the parish: We gather in the name of Jesus Christ to worship God; to invite all into a community of friendship, love and respect; and to nurture and strengthen our faith. We go out to share God’s Spirit and to live God’s love; to be faithful stewards of God’s creation; and to help those in need.
May you give generously to the church’s ministry and mission in 2020.
The Reverend John R. Schaeffer and the Vestry of St. Mary Anne’s Episcopal Church
If someone visits a small old country church, and burial ground, like St. Mary Anne’s, and finds they are well-cared for and clearly prayed in, this is itself a great witness. So time and money spent caring for such a holy place should not in principle be regarded as a waste of love, time and money.
