St. Ann’s Episcopal Church

While is so hot here in Jackson, MS, I am reminiscing about cooler times this summer and one of those memories is of walking around the grounds at the beautiful St. Ann’s Episcopal Church in Kennebunkport, ME…

One of 18 historic summer chapels in the Diocese of Maine, St. Ann’s has been in continuous use since 1892…

The family of President George H.W. Bush attend services here in the summers and Mrs. Bush had just celebrated her 90th birthday “on the grounds” the week before I arrived…

The Right Reverend John Maury Allin, 23rd Presiding Bishop of North America (1973-1985) served as rector from 1985-1995.  Bishop Allin, who hailed from Jackson,  was a family friend and it was a treat to walk around the grounds of this place that I had heard so much about over the years…

I hope you enjoyed the walk around St. Ann’s as much as I enjoyed reliving it!

(thanks AB for the tour)

I’ll be headed to Nashville with daughter and the movers as you are reading this – wish me luck.

Hope your week is off to a great start…
