Participants in this ministry pray for one another, those on the St. Anne's prayer list, the church, the clergy, and others. The group typically gathers on two alternating Thursdays each month from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The first hour is dedicated to prayer and the second hour is focused on growth and learning. In the past we have studied the healing ministries of Jesus, discussed Barbara Brown Taylor's Gospel Medicine, explored different forms of prayer, and viewed artwork to learn more about how we might be better participants in God's healing grace in the world.
A ministry which provides "hands-on" support to those experiencing short-term needs. These may be parishioners dealing with a medical emergency or upcoming surgery, those mourning a loss, families with a new baby, and other special needs. Helping Hands can offer assistance with meals, errands, or rides. Leaders for this ministry rotate their coordination duties on a monthly basis.

St. Joe's Guild
St. Joe's Guild is a group of motivated individuals who spend one Saturday a month fixing up our parish home! Be it fixing toilets, installing signs, touching up paint or patching walls, our Joes do what needs to get done (and we learn a lot in the process!) Whether you have a fix-it skill you could offer or you're just ready to do some heavy lifting, we are happy to have you.
