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.
