Saint Ann’s Church. Bronx, NY
Saint Ann’s is located in the poorest congressional district (per capita) in the United States. The congregation includes people of Latino, African-American, and Caribbean backgrounds. Because it is in walking distance from many communities with fundamental needs, Saint Ann’s provides a platform for direct aid (clothing and food in particular) and for longer-term programs such as a computer lab for an after school program, which are supported by restricted grant funds.
Saint Ann’s has been a sister congregation to Saint Mark’s for many, many years. Each Sunday, we deliver food and clothing to the church which has been collected from our congregation. In addition, we hold a holiday food collection each year for Saint Ann’s on the Sunday before Thanksgiving Day. In the Spring, members of our two churches come together for a family-style picnic, sharing in outdoor games, a barbecue and an informal Eucharist.
