NURTURING DISCIPLES THROUGH PRAYER, HOSPITALITY, AND SERVICE.
Just as St. Ann nurtured the Blessed Virgin Mary as the first and best disciple of Jesus, we see ourselves as a nurturing community making more disciples for Jesus. Prayer, hospitality, and service are the three things we do best and which we seek to develop in our service of Christ, His Church, and the larger community.
Moving forward, you will see these new mission statements printed on the parish bulletin, on parish letterhead, and on other materials promoting our parish. May they also be printed on our hearts and made visible in all of our activities and actions as a parish, showing the whole world the real reasons we love being disciples of Christ!
A Pledge to Parish Life
My parish is composed of people like me. I help make it what it is. It will be friendly, if I am. Its pews will be filled, it i help fill them. It will do great work, if I work. It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver. It will bring other people into its community, if I invite and bring them. It will be a parish of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, and a parish with a noble spirit, if I, who make it what it is, am filled with these same things. Therefore, with the help of God, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being all the things that I want my parish to be.
During this uncertain time please remember that there are many ways you can continue your support to St. Ann Church. You can sign up for our online giving program, this can be a permanent solution or a temporary. If this not a service you wish to utilize you still have options. You can simply mail your envelopes to the parish, you can drop them off in the mail box located on the side of the building by our office door, you can place them in the locked box in the vestibule of church or leave them in the ushers closet. These locations are all checked weekly to be counted. If you have any questions concerning how to continue your donations please do not hesitate to contact Emily in the parish office.
Dear St. Ann VBS family,
After hours of prayerful patience, thought, and discernment, it is with great sadness that our VBS team has decided to cancel this year's Vacation Bible School. Our first priority is the health of our kids and amazing volunteers. With an interactive program like VBS, it would be difficult to practice and maintain appropriate distancing in the wake of COVID 19. We will have a fabulous program for next summer and hope you can all join us July 12-16, 2021. We will continue to pray for the health of you and your families and ask you to pray for us.
Saturday 6:15 PM-6:45 PM
Other times by appointment.
