In the heart of an historic art colony, since 1883 Saint Ann’s Parish has graced the  coastal landscape of the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound with a strong presence  and vital commitment to service in the community.

Saint Ann’s is a Level 2 Green House  of Worship. This recognition is awarded by the CT Interreligious Eco-Justice Network (IREJN),  a program of environmental stewardship that grants certificates of achievement for  implementing eco-friendly measures in buildings and within congregations.  

Since 1952, the Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) has provided a voice for the river. Today, the organization, members, and volunteers work with partners to protect and restore the river  and four-state watershed. CRC advocates for rivers, while educating and engaging communities. By coming together, the CRC believes pollution is prevented, habitat is improved, and enjoyment of the river and its tributary streams promoted. Healthy rivers support healthy  economies.  

The Episcopal Church in Connecticut (ECCT) is a Christian church devoted to  participating in God’s mission of restoration and reconciliation as followers of Jesus Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit. ECCT is made up of over 150 Episcopal parishes  and close to 60,000 Episcopalians living in Connecticut.
