Dear Brothers and Sisters
By now you’ve no doubt heard about the large number of families that were displaced by the explosions and fires in Andover, Methuen, and Haverhill. Would you be able to help St. Anne’s to help those in need?
Cash Donations – to help the Thrift Store offset costs when we give needy families bags of clothing, or for us to purchase personal care items? They ‘Coins for Church’ jar will be in the office during the week, and in church on Sundays.
Electronics – do you have any extra chargers you’re not using? Just label what sort of phone they fit, and drop it in one of our donation boxes in the Narthex (entrance of church).
Baby Items – Diapers, formula, and baby food are always needed. (Donated items that are not used will be donated to the Billerica Food Pantry.)
Personal Care Items – feminine care items, hair care and bath/body items are always needed.
(New) Underwear and Socks – While the Thrift Store has a lot of clothing, these two items are not sold, but new ones are always needed. There’s an Underwear/Sock bin outside the office.
There are three donation bins in the Narthex for your convenience as well.
If you want to help, but need assistance in purchasing items, or dropping them off, please speak with Rev. Lauren or Andrea Jeffrey. We can arrange to pick up donations you may have, or help purchase items for you.
Thank you for your generosity.

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
