The Angel Tree Outreach: This year we are partnering with the Dept. of Children and Family Services. Once again we ask that you choose one of the paper ornaments on the Angel Tree; the ornament has the age of the child that your gift will be for. Simply purchase a gift, wrap it, and bring it back to church before Christmas.
On Dec. 18, first join us at the 10 AM service for the Children's Christmas Pageant. Later we will be singing carols to the residents of the Sunny Acres Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, located at 254 Billerica Rd., Chelmsford, MA. Contact the church for further information.
Come and help decorate the church for Christmas on Tuesday, Dec. 20. We will first have a potluck supper at 6 PM followed by cleaning, greening and decorating the church in order to celebrate Christmas. Bring the whole family and enjoy cider and carols.

Our Mission Statement:
St. Anne's seeks to be led by the spirit to understand God's purpose for the world with our mission being to respond through Christ in worship, education, fellowship and service. Amen.
Our parish began in 1879 when parishioners of St. Anne's Lowell, who lived in Billerica, started meeting in homes as the St. Alban's Guild for men, and the St. Elizabeth's guild for women. A church was built and consecrated in 1890 and remained a mission church until 1959. St. Anne's continues to be rooted in the Episcopal tradition, welcoming all people and expressing that diversity in a variety of experiences.
