Saint Anne Activities board

The Saint Anne Activities Board (SAAB) provides all parishioners with the opportunity for involvement in the social aspects of our parish. In other words, we bring the FUN! SAAB is the host of a range of activities from Pub Night to Fish & Chips and more. All are welcome to join us in planning and implementing our parish events. 

Saint Anne Stages

Our vision is to create a community of people, coming from many different backgrounds, who want to share the experience of putting on a show. The rehearsing, painting, sewing, losing sleep, laughing, crying, and making memories are secondary to the most unique aspect of our theater company: We are a family-centered, multi-generational group--fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousin, grandparents and friends working together to experience the magic of theater! We produce a fall and spring musical for all ages and two sessions of our Musical Theater Summer Workshop for ages 8 to 14 in July and August. 

Go to to learn more. 

Senior Club

For 35 years the members of our Senior Club have been coming together, enjoying companionship, entertainment, trips, and programs dealing with a wide variety of current issues. Our leisure club helps foster community involvement and strengthens our Christian ideals. We meet on Monday afternoons at 1:00 in the Church Hall. Come join us--it's a wonderful opportunity to meet interesting people!

Stewardship Committee

Stewardship is a way of life, an everyday walking with our risen Lord, an awareness that our God-given gifts are not our own, but are meant to be put to the service of one another. The members of this committee seek to nurture a spirit of stewardship in our parish, awakening us to our shared responsibility and to all the ways we can help make our parish Mission Statement come alive so that we may be, truly, "a welcoming and forgiving community, serving the needs of all God's people."
