St. Mary Anne's Episcopalian Church

St. Mary Anne's in North East, MD has a long history, stretching back over more than 300 years and is part of the Diocese of Easton, the Episcopal Church on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The Episcopal Church is the current day descendent of the Church of England which was brought to Maryland in Colonial times. Often we are seen as a bridge between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism - our worship and sacraments are similar to the Roman Catholic Church, but our organization, theology and social teachings are closer to mainline Protestant churches. At St. Mary Anne's, we believe that outreach involves far more than writing a check. Our parishioners are involved in the life of the local and the worldwide community. Outreach Office Food Bank: Our Food Bank is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays from 9:30 - 12:00. The Outreach Office can be reached by telephone during these hours at 410-287-2230. We provide food and financial assistance to help with evictions, utility shut-offs, prescription purchases, etc. Our parishioners staff the food bank, collect and donate food, and are an integral part of the lives of our less fortunate brothers and sisters in the North East area. Our food bank is open to all who need assistance; those requesting aid must come to the office in person to apply. The outreach office can be contacted by email at Outreach@stmaryanne.org.

RAY OF HOPE

Visit Ray of Hope Missions: "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day.... teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime"

We support families during their transition. Our Free Food Pantry gives supplemental food to allow them to use their resources for other expenses. We also provide clothing and furniture when needed. We serve the area from North East to the Susquehanna River (Western Cecil County). Our goal is to help people find the way to change their lives so that they don't need our help anymore. This includes assisting them in finding a good-paying job, learning how to budget their money, and connecting them with other services and agencies that will help them succeed. Our Food Pantry has many customers who will always require assistance because their incomes are inadequate for their needs; these include the elderly, disabled, and others attempting to survive on fixed incomes. We also assist families who have lost everything in fires or natural disasters and we assist victims of domestic violence to get to safety.

Meeting Ground

Visit Meeting Ground their mission is to help meet basic human needs and to address the root problems that perpetuate the cycle of homelessness and poverty. During Advent and Christmas, Bethel Lutheran Church collects clothing and outerwear on our “Sock, Mitten and Hat Tree” to provide to Meeting Ground. Our Youth Group has also provided a monetary donation to this local, faith-based network of facilities serving homeless people of Cecil County.
