Choir Chairs, Prayer Books and Hymnals, Oh My!
Since the completion of our Sanctuary and choir room renovations at the end of last year, we have received numerous requests from parishioners about ways they can help support this exciting period of growth at St. Anne’s. As a result, we have identified the following areas of opportunity:
• Sponsor a Choir Chair to Honor Someone: $150—Your dedication will be acknowledged on an engraved plaque that will be placed a chair, and you will be recognized as a sponsor.
• Sponsor a Choir Chair: Any amount, no dedication: You will be recognized as a sponsor.
• Dedicate a Copy of a Prayer Book or Hymnal (1982 Hymnal and/or LEVAS): $25—Your dedication will be recognized on a book plate inside the front cover. (N.B. The need is greatest for the LEVAS Hymnals)
If you would like to participate, simply complete the form in the Narthex, and place it in the offering basket or drop it off in the Parish Office. In the memo portion of your check (written to St. Anne’s), please indicate if your contribution is for a chair or book (or both).

There is no fee to attend but you must register and it is strongly advised that you read Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities by Ruby K. Payne, PhD before attending.
