"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 Episcopal Church. Come meet her and the rest of our church family this Sunday.

Deacon Miguel Briones of the Church of the Redeemer in Elgin and Pastor Andrea clap to the recessional after Pastor Andrea presided over a Spanish Eucharist and spoke at several services recently at the church as part of a pulpit exchange set up so we could learn more about what it would take to establish a Spanish language service here at St. Anskar. Redeemer's pastor, Uriel  Lopez, presided over our service and Eucharist and discussed what setting up a Spanish ministry here would entail during an Adult Forum after the service.

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.
