Education for Ministry (EfM), a rich Spiritual Legacy at St. Anne’s
St. Anne’s has a history of 18 years of Education for Ministry. EfM cultivated a depth of spirituality and love of learning at St. Anne’s. We are taking a hiatus from EfM, and hope to form a new cohort in the future.
St. Anne’s hosts Cursillo programs and several members of St. Anne’s are currently active with their Cursillo groups.
Book Series, Advent & Lenten Programs
In 2015, we delved deep into “Conversations with Scripture: The Gospel of Mark”, by Marcus Borg, sharing insights with each other.
We also read “Letters from the Farm: A Simple Path for a Deeper Spiritual Life”, written by the Rev. Becca Stevens.
During our Interim time, our we read read Richard Rohr’s “Preparing for Christmas” during Advent. For Lent, our Interim Rector shared a three part interactive series on pilgrimate with photos from her trips walking the Camino de Santiago.
We are reading “People of the Way, Renewing Episcopal Identity,” by Dwight J. Zscheile, as we do our discernment during the Interim period.
Annual Women’s Retreat
In the tranquil setting of The Bishop’s Ranch in Sonoma County, the women of St. Anne’s explore our personal and communal ways of connecting with our inner personalities and those who have influenced us. Sharing of story, prayer, meditation, discussion, artistic exploration, and other activities are used to stimulate our imaginations in a prayerful atmosphere.
