Description

Strengths

St. Ann’s is a warm, welcoming parish. We are a community of diverse people who worship together
and enjoy many opportunities for fellowship. We value our history, our place in the community, and our historic
stone church, but we also continually evolve through new activities and ministries and through an expanding
outreach program. Above all, our main strength is our dedicated parishioners. We are a real family.
St. Ann’s campus offers a calm atmosphere for contemplation and peace to support our worship. We are
fortunate in that we’ve been able to upgrade our grounds and buildings over the past nine or so years. Our
strong music program, including our choir, helps to enhance our worship experience.
As for our compensation package, our starting offer is negotiable depending upon experience and other
variables. We are happy to provide housing in the rectory as well as pay for the utilities (estimated at
approximately $6,400).

Challenges

The main weakness we’ve faced recently is a decline in attendance. Through places like Facebook,
we’ve been working to interest new families in visiting our church. We have also encouraged more
parishioners to volunteer for our many activities since there are so many opportunities to become more involved
through volunteering. We are working to stabilize our financial future through shrewd investments, creative
fundraising, and increased stewardship.
