An anonymous donor made it possible to purchase and install our new camera recording system, which will allow us to livestream our Masses.
The joy of the Gospel needs to be preached to more people, and with this generous donation, St. Ann Parish certainly takes Christ's mandate a step higher.
God bless you all for your support and generosity. It truly is a blessing and a way to keep the Gospel in your lives.
St. Ann Catholic Church is pleased to announce that as of October 21, 2021, we have reached OUR CATHOLIC APPEAL goal!
We would like to thank all those who participated in the current campaign and contributed to the assessment given to the Parish.
Our Goal for the present year: $123,748.93
Amount raised, including pledges: $139,713
Amount paid to date: $129,540.20
Amount due in pledges: $10,472.80
Proceeds from donations will be reflected in the community with those in need.
To all those that have still not completed their pledge, we would like you to know that those donations are still needed, considering that any overpayments are distributed as follows:
1. Overpayments will be directed to the diocesan priests' retirement fund.
2. A third will be given to the diocesan charity activities.
3. The remaining third will go to the Parish.
Thank you, community of St. Ann. It is a blessing to have a community as involved and faithful to the calling of God.
We are incredibly grateful to each of you for your generosity in undertaking such a wonderful project. We can show that the true spirit of Christianity and kindness magnify the soul as a community. A final amount of $3,600 was sent to Bethlehem, and 100 gifts were sent to Colombia, which will be used to provide a Christmas present to 220 children.
From the bottom of our hearts, we wish you a Merry Christmas!
Queremos darles gracias especiales a todos
ustedes por su generosidad al tener la
oportunidad de emprender un proyecto tan
generoso con el cual podemos demostrar como comunidad el verdadero espíritu cristiano,
la generosidad engrandece el alma.
Se envió la cantidad de 3600 dólares y la cantidad de 100 regalos se enviaron para Colombia que en total sirven para darle un presente de navidad a 220 niños.
Desde el fondo de nuestros corazones les
deseamos una feliz navidad
Matthew is our first Seminarian Candidate in 51 years.
Fr. Alfonso met him almost a year ago while he was on semester break. Father spoke with him and asked him what his future plans were. He gave a general response about finishing school. Fr. Alfonso told him to keep his heart and mind open to God.
Later the next week, Father received a call from Matthew telling him that he had just completed his Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology and that he received a letter from the Diocesan Office of Vocations informing him that he was accepted into the St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary.
Congratulations Matthew! We are grateful to God for your "yes" to discern his call to the priesthood. Let us all continue to pray that he enters more deeply each day into the mystery of Jesus' Sacred Heart, who seeks to give you rest and guidance at every moment of your life.
