Coronovirus Response Update from the Very Rev. Zachary Fleetwood

CORONOVIRUS RESPONSE UPDATE

Dear Friends,

 As I communicated in my last letter to you, all worship and activities for St. Anne’s Parish are cancelled for the next two weeks at least.  In these uncertain times, our need to draw closer to God becomes even stronger and as St. Paul reminds, nothing ultimately will be able to separate us from the love of God. (see Romans 8:37-39).  While we won’t be able to gather tomorrow for worship together in a physical sense, I commend to you the following on-line opportunities for worship.  In the meantime, I am praying for you and ask your prayers for me.

With love,

Zack+
