  • St. Ann Catholic Church:

    More than a building

    Four walls, a floor, a roof, windows and a door.  Bricks, siding, cement, tile, wood, glass. All of these materials are needed to make a building with a strong foundation. Yet that is not all this is needed.  Warmth, light, music, praise and welcoming people with generous and compassionate hearts these aspects make a building more than a building. 

    That is what St. Ann is. The Catholic community is strongly present through its St. Vincent de Paul society, Knights of Columbus, Prayers on Wheels, youth ministry and mission trips, fundraisers, church dinners, and the annual Fall Festival! All of this is to foster and nurture the community’s spiritual needs.  This is what St. Ann’s does. Yes, there is a beautiful brick and mortar building, but St. ann is more than brick and mortar.  It is a building with a purpose. 

    As Ephesians states, “And he gave some as apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers, to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,” and St. Ann will continue to build up the body for Christ for 150 more years.


     

  • All Are Welcome

    Throughout our history, members of St. Ann Parish built a strong faith foundation, through personal sacrifice and prayer to grow our Church.  Celebrating our 150th year as a Catholic Faith Community is a testament to those who came before us.  Their mission was to grow our Church by serving the Lord and His people.

    From our humble beginnings back in 1868 through today, one thing has remained constant at St. Ann’s, a feeling that in God’s house, “All are welcome”.

    This mission was accomplished by generation after generation sharing their blessings, of time, talent and treasure with others.  They recognized that all of these were gifts from God and they were given to be shared.

    Friends, this is still our mission today.  We are called to serve others.  We are called to share our gifts.  We are blessed to have so many groups within our parish that we can be part of in this mission.  Some of these are the Knights of Columbus, CEW, MOPS, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Journey of the Heart Missions, LBH (Love Begins Here), Eucharistic Ministers, Choir, Prayers on Wheels, Parish Council, and the list goes on and on.

    Please consider being part of our future by giving a little of yourself today.  Your action and the actions of others will allow future St. Ann parishioners the opportunity to celebrate OUR Church’s 200th anniversary in 2068.  This can only be accomplished if we all give what we can - when we can.

    Thank you for being a part of St. Ann parish and providing an environment where “All are Welcome”.  A place where we gather to celebrate and witness the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  A place to give thanks to God for His love, His mercy, and His grace.  We have so much to be thankful for.
