    Christmas Dinner | Giving Tree | Socks & Gloves Drive

    This 40th Christmas Dinner will be hosted in honor of Nancy Moriarty (d. 8/30/22), whose heart was too big for her already big family, Nancy brought our parish together as a family to share Christmas joy with our neighbors in need and homeless persons in the area.

    The Holidays are drawing near, and we have the wonderful opportunity to continue this wonderful tradition and share our time and resources with the needy in our community. There is something for everyone! Our Giving Tree, Socks & Gloves Drive and Christmas Dinner are a success only with your joy and generosity.

    Check out the many ways to serve and truly be a light on the hill. Please use the tabs at the top of the Sign-Up Genius forms to see all sign-up opportunities. There are volunteers needed for food preparation/donation, hands on serving and Giving Tree preparation. Due to the complexity of planning behind the Christmas dinner no walk-in volunteers are allowed.

  • Grief Ministry

    October 20, 2022

    An invitation to accompany those who are grieving

    Calling those who wish to walk with others going through grief and mourning. A Grief Ministry is being formed at St. Anne’s so that we may support each other as a faith community. The support that is given is not as an expert or guide, but as a companion who has experienced how grief has impacted their lives.

    Volunteers must be at least one year from grievance.  For more information email Marty Hillary or volunteer below.

    “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and God of all encouragement, who encourages us in our every affliction, so that we may be able to encourage those who are in any affliction with the encouragement with which we ourselves are encouraged by God.”
    2 Corinthians 1:3

  • Oh how we prayed and partied!

    September 29, 2022

    St. Anne parishioners gathered on Saturday, September 10th to witness Fr. Colin swear an oath of fidelity to faithfully adhere to and hand on the faith. Parish staff and members of the pastoral and finance councils were presented to Fr. Colin and the congregation as his collaborators in carrying out his mission as Pastor. It was a joyful, fervent and moving Mass – one that will not be forgotten! 

    Our Party with the Padre was a blast! Parishioners of all ages interacted with each other throughout the night. During a game of Human Bingo, kids and adults made up handshakes and found out interesting details about each other such as who shared their birthday month or ever got a speeding ticket.


    A group of parishioners led by Stefanie Buono and Christina Zaccagnino, succeeded at surprising Fr. Colin and everyone else with flash mob! Raffle prizes were given out to the bingo players – movie tickets and an annual family membership to the aquarium were among favorite prizes. Our evening drew to a close in song led by members of Communion & Liberation followed by a blessing from Fr. Colin. 

    Thank you to everyone who worked hard to make this such a significant event for our community!

  • Finding Our Soul’s True North

    August 30, 2022

    Six Sessions to discover new direction & purpose in the second half of life

    In navigation, True North is that direction which never changes—regardless of shifting magnetic fields or constellations. It’s the reliable, unfailing marker by which all other directions can be found. In life we can get so busy making a living, raising a family and keeping up with the world that we may feel that we’ve lost our way. We lose our sense of purpose and direction; we lose touch with what gives us life and brings true joy. We need to find our soul’s True North.

    Join Ron Ryan for these days of reflection to learn from your own experience—and from others—how to faithfully navigate the best years of your life.

    Ron Ryan, D. Min. served in full-time Catholic church ministry in various parish and catechetical roles for 43 years.. Now retired, he continues to offer seminars, Bible studies and retreats.


    Session Schedule | 9 am – 3 pm

    October 8 | Learning from Our Lives: Naming what we’ve learned from life so far

    November 12 | Finding What Gives Us Life: Uncovering what gives us life, hope & joy

    December 10 | Forgiving & Letting Go: Releasing what binds us to the past

    January 14 | Befriending Our Mortality:  Addressing our fears of aging and death

    February 11 | Envisioning Our Future: Discerning direction for the way ahead

    March 11 | Finding New Power & Purpose: Growing in grace for the future

    5pm Mass presides by Archbishop Etienne

    6pm Party with the Padre in Banchero Hall

    We are blessed to have a priest who is so in love with his vocation, mission and his parish family.  Fr. Colin Parrish was assigned to St. Anne’s in June of 2019.  As Priest Administrator he had the functions of a pastor, but only on temporary assignment. Now that his assignment is long term he is able to lean more fully into pastoral visioning and planning in the years to come. Join us at the official Pastoral Inauguration and check out one of the ways you can get involved.
