"Reaching out
with faith, love and praise."

Looking for a church home?

Our mission statement captures three aspects of St. Anskar’s identity. We are a faithful community of Episcopalians who gather from a wide area each Sunday morning to praise God and share the Holy Eucharist. Growing in love implies our desire to build on our common goals, sense of fellowship, and feeling of belonging to a large extended family/community. We look to continue to grow in our expressions of praise to the God who created, redeemed and sustains us. The Rev. Andrea L. Wight is rector of St. Anskar's. Come meet her and the rest of our church family this Sunday.

  Bishop Lee
coming to St Anskar


     Bishop Jeffrey Lee will be visiting St Anskar on Sunday, Sept. 27.  The bishop will be presiding and preaching at the 9:30 a.m. worship service. 
A reception, including a light brunch, will follow the service.

Candy Cane Bazaar & Bake Sale
moving to Oct. 3

The Candy Cane Bazaar is early this year, which means we need to start planning for the bake sale now. 

Saturday Oct. 3 is the Candy Cane Bazaar & St. Anskar Bake Sale from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.  It’s not too early to plan what you will make, bake and donate.  This year, Becky Bradford will coordinate the sale.  We still could use one more person to help out with the sale.


Soup Kitchen
scheduled for Oct. 17

We will be hosting the soup kitchen at the Jubilee Center at Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Saturday Oct.17. 

A signup sheet is posted in the narthex. Donations are welcome to help with the cost of the meal as well as the usual milk and baked goodies for dessert.

Reaching out:
     Our outreach ranges from providing a regular meeting place for more than a dozen community groups to whipping up some great meals for some of Rockford's hungriest residents.
