Inquirer’s (Confirmation) Classes. Start September 21st. There is still room.

INQUIRER’S CLASSES: For those new to the Episcopal Church this gives a great opportunity to ask, “Why do we do what we do?” This class is a survey of the History of the Episcopal Church, its historic heritage and roots; it is a survey of the contemporary church in the world and how does it look. You will review the Catechism of the Episcopal Church, discuss “Real Presence” in Eucharist; you will review the Seven Sacraments; you will come to know how we govern ourselves and learn about the empowerment of the people. Classes are generally 1 hour long. The class will start on September 21st at 9:00 a.m. and last for six consecutive Sundays. It will culminate in your option to become Confirmed or Received into the Episcopal Church by Rt. Rev. Morris Thompson, XI Bishop of Louisiana on October 26th. PLEASE JOIN US AT 9:00 A.M. THIS SUNDAY.

Parishioner Portraits Coming Soon

You may have noticed that our St. Anna’s Family is growing, and just like any growing family, it’s time to take pictures!  One of New Orleans’ prominent wedding and lifestyle photographers, Amy Jett, has graciously given her time to come do professional portraits for members of St. Anna’s after mass on Sunday  Sunday October 26th.  She will set up in the courtyard–weather permitting–to make it convenient to capture our smiling faces, so mark those dates on your calendar and be sure to come wearing your Sunday Best.   Amy will offer great prices on prints to purchase through her website so you can plan to give photographic portraits as family gifts this year for Christmas.  Of course, she would be happy to discuss her prices for more extensive photo sessions for your family or next big event. To view a sample of Amy’s beautiful work, feel free to look up her website: http://www.amyjettfinephotography.com/.
