Ministries of Service

At St. Ann we believe that a relationship with Jesus moves us out of our seats and into active service. In Matthew 22, Jesus tells us that next to loving God, the second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as ourselves. Thus we aim to equip and empower every member to serve others in their homes, in the church, and through community outreach.



At St. Ann, we believe that service starts in the home. For this reason we aim to offer opportunities to strengthen marriages and families to love and serve one another.

At St. Ann, we encourage our members to get involved in serving the ordinary needs of the parish.  Serving in the parish not only helps our parish operate, but welcomes you even deeper into the St. Ann and OLOA family!

At St. Ann, we know that our faith is not something relugated to our Church campus, but one that sends us out to serve those in need.

prison ministry

In Matthew 25, Jesus explicitly identifies himself with the imprisoned, telling His followers that a visit to the imprisoned is a visit to Him.

Responding to this invitation, St. Ann heads to Blackwater Correctional Institution in Milton monthly to visit Christ in the imprisoned, offering bible studies, faith sharing, discussions, and prayer.

We’re happy to help all interested volunteers get trained and state certified.
