  • Annual Catholic Appeal 2024


    April 29, 2024

    ACA 2024

    Our goal this year is $85,617 and I desire that we reach 37% participation. Our average gift last year was $598, and I ask that you please consider giving $400 to the campaign, at least as a starting point. Your gift can either be a one-time gift, or given in installments throughout this next year.

    I invite you, once you have pledged to make your gift, to submit a vote for one of the following three projects:

    1. A campus-wide initiative to update our clear glass windows and frames to be more energy efficient. Part of the rebate money would go to support the school’s windows being replaced in addition to the church’s windows. The windows in the church and office spaces have never been replaced since St. Anne’s expanded across Lee Street in 1962.

    2. Installing a heating control/thermostat system in the church. We have a working boiler and compressor, but the control system is inefficient. We currently do not have a thermostat, and this has led to difficult-to-control temperatures in the church space and a waste of heat throughout the winter months.

    3. Making some roof repairs to ensure it stays in good health, as it is 17 years old. Each winter, the roof has areas of standing water, which we currently pump off. We’d like to add additional drains, as well as make some patches, to ensure the roof has as long a life as possible.

  • Finding Our Soul’s True North: Growing in Gratitude


    February 14, 2024

    9:00AM – 12:00 PM 

    St. Anne Church Narthex

    FSTN Stages of Growth Flyer

    Anyone is welcome.

  • Summer Storage Clean Out Project


    June 16, 2023

    As you know, we are planning a full clean up project of St. Anne storage spaces (including the House of Prayer) starting on June 24th.

    We are still seeking parishioner input on items we might have in storage. In particular, we are looking for pertinent information such as historical context as we look forward to the actual clean up. You can find the form on our webpage.

    Do you (or someone you know) love organizing, bringing order to chaos, or helping clean up old things? We are in need of many volunteers to help us out as we tackle organizing the St. Anne storage spaces.

    Here are a couple of needs that we have for the weekend of June 24-25:

    • Help moving things out of storage spaces on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25
    • Food and supplies

    If you are unable to volunteer physically, please consider signing up for one of our food/supply volunteer needs.

    In addition to volunteers, we are also looking for some items to help with the process.

    • large plastic storage bins
    • hand trucks, dollies, wagons, rolling carts
    • tarps
    • painter’s tape, construction garbage bags, cleaning supplies
    • moving/cardboard boxes for donations

    If you are able to help, please sign up here. Once you sign up, we will email you with next steps.

    Call for volunteer for the following will come mid-week:

    • Help sorting through items during the week of June 26
    • Help moving things back into storage once the sorting is complete
    • Cleaning the storage spaces before things are put back in
    • Hauling things for donation (especially if you have a larger vehicle)

    If you have any questions, please reach out to JESSICA or BRIGID.

    We are so appreciative of any help or interest in our big summer project. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

  • Synod Updates


    April 28, 2023

    Synod Moment of Prayer

    When is the moment of prayer?
    The General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops has invited the Church throughout the world to a moment of prayer for the Synod on Friday, May 31, 2023, the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.


    Why a moment of prayer?

    The purpose of this moment of prayer is threefold:

    To pray for the Synodal Process and to place the work of the General Assembly in October under the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church

    To make the People of God aware of the importance of the Synodal Process and to encourage all to accompany this process with prayer

    To engage lay, religious, and clergy in prayer for the Synod

     

    We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name.
    With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts;
    Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it.
    We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder.
    Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path
    nor partiality influence our actions.
    Let us find in You our unity
    so that we may journey together to eternal life
    and not stray from the way of truth and what is right.
    All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time,
    in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever.
    Amen.

     


    Please check back later and/or keep your eyes on bulletin announcements and FlockNote mailings for updates on the Q&A session. 

    What was it?: Synod Listening Session Results AND Q&A

    When was it?: Saturday, May 6th after 5pm Vigil Mass AND Sunday, May 7th after 10am Mass

  • Stations of the Cross – Bach’s ‘The Well Tempered Clavier’


    March 23, 2023

    Wednesday, March 29th 
    7pm – 8pm
    St. Anne Church

    Bach, as all Baroque composers, attempted to express a single emotion with each piece. The Well-Tempered Clavier is a collection in two books of 96 different pieces, four in each key. It was frankly revolutionary for its time, and is still revered by pianists, organists, and composers. With so many opportunities to give musical garb to emotion, there is a lot to choose from.

    The idea of doing a Stations of the Cross with Bach’s music acting as the commentary came from the famous fugue in C# minor from the first book. Tradition has it that the theme is in the shape of a cross and so it is often played on Good Friday. It is also one of the most emotional pieces of music I know, while simultaneously being one of the most intellectual. It wasn’t hard to go through the books and find other pieces suitable for the other stations.

    The result is more of a concert than a traditional stations, but for this pianist it is a work of devotion and prayer. Your listening is your participation in the prayer.

  • Alpha


    September 1, 2022

    Join a Conversation

     

    Tuesdays, October 4th – December 13th, 2022
    7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
    St. Anne’s Nartex

    We’ve been speaking about it for a long time and the moment is finally here! Alpha is great place to invite and accompany a friend who is curious about faith or religion. What’s wonderful about Alpha is that it provides a warm space for everyone.  Alpha invites guests from all backgrounds to share a meal and conversation around some of life’s biggest questions.  It is designed to provide guests an opportunity to connect with one another while sharing thoughts, ideas, and opinions in a safe and caring environment. Alpha helps bring people together while providing the chance to encounter Jesus.  Love Listens. Join the conversation.

    The same Alpha content is run all over the world, by Christians of all traditions, sharing the good news of Jesus. Find out more about Alpha in the Catholic Context and what church pastors have to say about Alpha.

    Each session has 3 key ingredients:

    Connection
    Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table or a quick online catch-up, times of connecting are important. All sessions start with a time of connection over a meal to relax and build friendships.

    Content
    The Alpha talks are designed to engage people from all walks of life and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues of life and faith and unpack the basics of Christian belief, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?”, and “How does God guide us?”

    Conversation
    One of the most important parts of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic in a small group format. Guests hear from others and have an opportunity to contribute/share in a judgment-free environment.
