We want to welcome you to our beautiful and great Parish! This place of worship was founded in 1969. During these fifty-two years, with the effort and love of many faithful people, we have been growing in number and holiness, making us one of the biggest Parishes of our Western Deanery in the Diocese of Orlando. This extraordinary vision to dedicate a place in the heart of Florida to worship God started with less than 50 families who worked very hard to build and develop this magnificent place of contemplation and prayer. Today, more than 1,500 families are registered in our Parish. We have many visitors from other states and countries who visit central Florida during the summer vacation season or winter when our country's north becomes very cold. Our beloved "snowbirds" know very well that they have a warm place during the winter season here at our Parish, and in summer, you remain in our hearts and prayers.
With our hearts renewed, we want to welcome all of you to be part of our Parish. We have worked hard with Fr. Duber, Deacons Frank and Richard, and all our staff and volunteers to create the best environment in our temple and in all our gardens to make St. Ann "a great garden of contemplation and prayer." If our temple is closed, you will always find a perfect spot to pray, contemplate, and have time to spend with God.
Our Parish has 30 acres where you will find a vivid orange grove, a new shrine completely open and dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe, donated by John the XXIII movement, and an outside altar donated by the Religious Education office. There are many olive trees and a beautiful view of Lake Eva that gives visitors the feeling of being in the Holy Land. The Stations of the Cross in the garden impel us to walk with Jesus and to meditate upon his passion and love for humanity. Our prayer tower is dedicated to the unborn, where you may light a candle for your intentions. There are statues in honor of Mary, the Holy Family, St. Ann, Jesus playing with the children, and the Guardian Angel. The garden is in honor of St. Joseph. You can enjoy all the flowers and ornamental plants, old oak and palm trees that decorate and become silent witnesses of our Parish's 51 years of existence.
In our church, you will find a gorgeous pyrography mural and the Stations of the Cross made by the Spanish artist Jose Aznar in which he captured the scene of Jesus resurrected sharing a dinner with a group of parishioners-founders, and the two priests, Fr. Carlos Azupin and Fr. Anderson, who built the church.
But when you get to St. Ann's, you will find a strong community of faith that yearns to share the Good News of Salvation with all of you. More than 350 students are in our Religious Education program; 47 catechumens were baptized, confirmed, and received the Eucharist for the first time at our Easter Vigil. Our prayer groups (Cursillo, John the XXIII, Charismatic group, Youth Ministry); religious organizations (Knights of Columbus, Columbiettes); a group that prays the Holy Rosary every morning before the 9:00 AM Mass for the unborn and the priests; and many ministers and volunteers make our church a favorite destination to be a good Catholic, a person of prayer.
Inside the church, we have room for 1,075 souls who want to join us in our vibrant liturgy in English and Spanish with wonderful choirs that enhance our celebrations. I am blessed to live in such a community of faith; they are the best!
Only you are missing! Come and see! We are waiting for you! Come and be a part of our dreams and let us work together to build the Kingdom of God here and now.
Let's make St. Ann's an excellent place to stay and be in touch with God.
Welcome to St. Ann Parish, the multicultural community in the heart of Florida!

NEW PALM TREE
We had one of our campus palm trees near the church’s front entrance die due to a lightning strike. In an effort to keep our grounds with their original landscape design, we are replacing it with a brand new Sabal palm tree in the exact location. Thank you for your contributions to the Buildings& Grounds Fund.
We welcomed fifteen (15) more children into the Catholic faith this weekend. We have 25 more children scheduled to be baptized in the coming weeks. We are so blessed at our Parish to be able to continue to welcome so many new Catholics. Praise be to God!

Lord Jesus, Son of the Eternal Father and Mary Immaculate, grant to our young people the generosity necessary to follow Your Call and the courage required to overcome all obstacles to their vocation. Give the parents faith, love, and spirit of sacrifice, which will inspire them to offer their children to God’s service and to rejoice whenever one of their children is called to the priesthood and religious life. Let your example and that Your Blessed Mother and St. Joseph encourage both young people and parents, and let Your grace sustain them.

St. Paul encourages the Philippians with these words: “Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility consider one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus” (Phil 2:2-6). The Easter Vigil is one of those blessed moments when we celebrate those who are examples of this great hope of St. Paul. These who step into full communion with Christ’s Church are of a singular purpose. During their journey, they cared for each other, were vulnerable, and prayed for and with each other. This night, they walk with each other and, for the first time, with us to the table of love. In them, we have great hope for the future of God’s Church and for our parish community. May we, too, with them, be found of the same mind that of Christ Jesus himself. Alleluia!!

“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is in him” (Jeremiah 17:7).
Our Catholic Appeal (OCA) is an annual opportunity for every member of our faith family to support the life-changing work and ministries of the Diocese of Orlando. Gifts to Our Catholic Appeal fund a variety of ministries that serve our nine counties in ways that no parish could alone. Annual gifts to Our Catholic Appeal provide essential funding to ministries that benefit every Catholic parish, school, and family in Central Florida. This funding provides critical support for our seminarians and retired priests, tuition assistance, health and housing care to people in need, faith programs for children, families, and adults, assistance for migrant workers, the disabled, and outreach programs such as Catholic Charities of Central Florida.
“Trusting the Lord means accepting what is placed before us as a gift from God and praising God, prospering what we have been given as blessing. We can trust that God’s strength will make up for whatever in us is lacking. Trust in the Lord! We delight in the Law of the Lord. I rejoice in your faithfulness and thank you for your blessing through a gift to Our Catholic Appeal. May the kingdom of God be our blessing.”
Bishop John Noonan, OCA 2022
At St. Ann Parish, it has always been a tradition to give joy and to support our Bishop and diocese through Our Catholic Appeal with the best disposition. We are consistently achieving 100% percent of our prior assessments. We start the 2022 campaign, trusting the Lord that we can continue bringing the Gospel to those who are most in need. As Catholics, our calling is to bring charity in our hearts, which is just one way our diocese makes us all part of that mission.
For the 2022 campaign, St. Ann Parish has received an assessment of $133,625. It is important to make it clear that together, as family, we can achieve this goal. Most of the funds collected will be used for the expansion of diocesan and social projects conducted by the Church in central Florida for the good of God's people.
“As the objects of God’s love, men and women become subjects of charity. They are called to make themselves instruments of grace, to pour forth God’s charity, and to weave networks of charity.” Caritas en Veritate, Benedict XVI (2009)
Remember Lord your Church spread throughout the world, and bring her to the fullness of charity.
Thank you, Dr. Dan Renuart, for your OCA Presentation!
St. Dominic received the Rosary by the hands of Mary, and in honor of that, Fr. Alfonso and Fr. Duber (both Dominicans) have donated this beautiful Arch, St. Dominic Statue, and Rosary Garden. This Rosary-made stone will soon be covered with tiles specially ordered and made in Colombia. It will be one of the many places to meditate and pray the Rosary.
Miracle Toyota has given our parish a donation of $5,000 to go towards a “Children’s Garden” on our campus. This Garden for children will include the already installed arches covered with beautiful vines and flowers, tables, and benches for children to read and draw, a Butterfly Garden, and a Birdhouse Covered Tree. How wonderful it will be for our children to have their own special place on our campus!
