Each year, Saint Anne offers a wide variety of programs designed to deepen the spiritual lives of those who attend through activities like reflective talks, workshops, retreats, Bible studies, book discussions, gatherings, thoughtful conversation, video presentations, and more. Though each event is naturally linked though our faith, events are not cumulative or connected. Find below a list of past and current programs:
