The Society of Saint Anna the Prophet, a vowed, dispersed community of Episcopal women over the age of 50, will hold The Holy Eucharist and Vow Ceremony service at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta on Saturday, Feb. 5, 2022, at 11 AM. Installation of our second Superior, Peggy Courtright, also will occur during the service. All are invited!

SSAP was founded in 2005 in Atlanta by our first Superior, the Rev. Nancy Baxter, and is recognized as a Christian Community under the canons of The Episcopal Church. The mission of SSAP is Godly aging, and ministry with the young and old, particularly with those not able to participate in a parish church.

Inspired by Anna, the only elder woman mentioned in the New Testament, we are lay and ordained, single, married, partnered and widowed, retired and still employed. We are dedicated to becoming a more diverse Society. We live in our own homes, in care centers and at a distance. Our vows to simplicity, creativity and balance are life-changing.

For more information or to contact us, visit our website at www.annasisters.org, or write to Marilyn Hughes, Director of Provisionals and Novices at SSAP, P.O. Box 15118, Atlanta, GA, 30333. Applicants must be confirmed Episcopalians, over the age of 50, with a heart for ministry to elders and children, a passion for discovering the gift of their own aging and a longing for intentional community.
