A new Episcopal church named after one of the newest Episcopal saints

A new congregation, formed out of the merger of two churches in the Diocese of California, has been named after one of the newest saints on the Episcopal calendar. St Anna’s Episcopal Church is the first to be named after an African American woman, having chosen Anna E.B. Alexander, the first and only African American Deaconess to serve in the Episcopal Church.
