  • Farewell to our Pastor Father Colin

    June 25, 2024

    Farewell Father Colin

    It is with a heart full of mixed emotions that we bid farewell to our dear Pastor Father Colin, who has been not just a shepherd to our flock but also a light in our community since his ordination in 2017 and his subsequent assignment to St. Anne in 2019.

    In the book of Ecclesiastes, it is said, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Today marks both an end and a beginning, an end to a cherished chapter in our parish life and the beginning of a new journey for our Pastor.


    Over the years, we have been blessed by his unwavering faith, his compassionate heart, and his tireless service. He has walked with us through seasons of joy and seasons of trials, always guiding us with wisdom and love. His sermons have not only echoed through the walls of St. Anne but have resonated within our hearts, inspiring us to live out the Gospel in our daily lives.

    As he moves on to serve another parish family, we are reminded that the work of the Lord knows no boundaries and that the seeds of faith he has planted here will continue to grow and flourish. We are confident that he will touch many more lives as he has touched ours.

    Father Colin, as you embark on this new chapter, we want you to know that you will always be a part of our St. Anne family. You leave behind a legacy of faith, hope, and love—a legacy that will continue to inspire us.

    We pray that God will bless you with strength, wisdom, and joy as you continue to spread His word and love. May His grace shine upon you, and may His peace be with you always.

    With heartfelt gratitude and love,

    Your St. Anne Parish

  • Looking back: Summer Block Party

    June 25, 2024

    Looking back: Summer Block Party

    As the sun set on June 22nd, it marked not just the end of a beautiful day, but the culmination of our unforgettable Summer Block Party.

    The party was as much about the warmth of the season as it was about the warmth of the hearts that came together to express gratitude and appreciation for our Pastor’s unwavering guidance and care.

    The air was filled with a blend of joy and nostalgia, as we shared stories of Fr. Colin’s impact on our lives.



    We broke bread, we shared laughter, and we cherished the moments that have united us in faith and fellowship. This gathering was more than a party; it was a tribute to a journey we’ve shared, marked by spiritual growth and the guidance of Fr. Colin who has been the heart of our parish.

    As we say goodbye to him, we also look forward with hope, carrying the lessons and love we’ve received into the future. Our Pastor may be moving on to new horizons, but the seeds sown here will continue to flourish and remind us of the legacy left behind.

    As we reflect on the success of this party, it is with immense gratitude that we extend our deepest thanks to each and every volunteer who contributed their time, talent, and spirit to make the event possible. It is because of your generosity that we were able to bid a memorable farewell to our beloved Pastor.

    Especially, we want to acknowledge the efforts of our Transition Team.

    Please know that you are truly appreciated.

  • 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.

  • Children (Grades 2-8) Join our Christmas Eve Choir!

    November 6, 2023

    A Message from Mo:

    Hello St. Anne Families! The Christmas holidays are going to be here sooner than you think. Are you going to be at the 4:00PM Christmas Eve Mass? Why not have your child participate in the celebration? I’m looking for some super singers and leaders, especially older students who are interested in singing solo if needed. Just email me that your child/children will participate. (Please email to get connected with the lead.)

    I’m very excited to work with the students and raise our voices together. I will be directing the choir and Mr. Charlie Hiestand, St. Anne Church music director, will be working with us and accompanying the choir on piano.

    The only requirement is that your child be at all rehearsals unless they are sick. All you need to do is respond in an email to me that your child will be attending our first rehearsal on November 8th.

    Who: Open to students in 2ND* -8TH grades
    *If your child is in 2nd or 3rd grade please make sure that you have the time to work with them on memorizing the songs. We will be learning a full Mass of music and they will need to be able to read, follow and learn the songs.
    Where: Rehearsals will take place in the Church (I will meet the students at the bottom of the main doors for each rehearsal and I will walk them over to the church. I will be holding a Choir sign. You can pick them up right at church when they are done.)
    *Pack an extra snack and water for those that may need it.
    When: All Wednesday rehearsals are from 2:15PM-3:00PM

    Wednesdays in November- 8, 15, 29
    Wednesdays in December- 6, 13, 20

    Sunday December 24th – Christmas Eve Mass, 3:00PM rehearsal. Mass at 4:00PM

    Health Safety
    Please do not send your child if they have any respiratory sickness. Singing is the number one way to spread respiratory droplets. We will monitor any RSV, Flu or Covid transmission in the community and will let you know specific protocols that may need to be implemented. Please feel free to send your child with a mask if you want them masked for every rehearsal.
    Any questions please feel free to email me. And don’t forget! Please let me know if your child will be attending on Wednesday November 15. Looking forward to singing with your child.

  • Ways to Pray for the Synod, happening now!

    October 19, 2023

    • On September 30, an ecumenical vigil of prayer with young adults will take place in St. Peter’s Square.
    • On October 1, the bishop, clergy, religious, and lay delegates will begin a 3-day retreat.
    • On October 4, Synod meetings will begin, concluding on October 29.

    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.

    Novena of prayer:
    If you’d like to pray more intensively, you could consider offering a novena of prayer at any point during the Synod. An appropriate time might be during the last days of the Synod, October 21-29. You could include the Synod in the Prayer of the Faithful at Mass, and pray the Adsumus prayer each day with the assembly. You might designate a special intention for each day, for example:
    October 21 – For all who believe in Christ
    October 22 – For those on the margins
    October 23 – For the poor
    October 24 – For young people
    October 25 – For catechumens and those who are searching for Christ
    October 26 – For non-practicing Catholics
    October 27 – For the delegates participating in the Synod, especially Archbishop Etienne
    October 28 – For the Holy Father
    October 29 – For the Holy Church

  • September 2023 Finance and Facility Highlights

    September 15, 2023

    Dear Parishioners,
    It is my pleasure as the Business Manager to start sharing more regular updates around the parish’s finances and facilities. I am preparing the parish annual report and plan to have that out to you within the next month. In general, my monthly segment of the bulletin will work to be as transparent as possible around where our position is financially, facility updates, as well as what help around the campus is needed.
    Which leads me to thank a family within the parish who has helped cover the damage to our broken doors – we truly appreciate that unexpected support in keeping our campus safe and secure.
    We are so grateful for all the volunteers that step up with their talent when needed. Looking ahead at this next month, I do have a few specific needs that would benefit greatly from your assistance. If you have experience (or know of someone) in the realm of landscape architecture and/or managing root systems underneath concrete, I would love to speak with you. Please stop by the office during business hours or email me at
    More generally, as we move into the fall, our groundskeeper is in challenge mode with the falling leaves and preparing the campus for winter. Please fill out the interest form so I can be in touch about your interest and availability – note that filling out the form does not mean you are signing up for anything beyond an email or conversation with me.
    Looking forward to getting to know you all better as I continue to settle into the St. Anne Community.
    Take care,
    Brigid McMahan

  • St. Vincent de Paul – Collection this weekend!

    August 3, 2023

    An Update: 

    Our neighbor that we have been sharing about for the last two months is now 4 months sober! She is living in a Catholic Community Services housing where she receives counseling and is now looking for employment. 


    Our Own: 

    One of our Vincentians wrote an article that appeared in the July 25, 2023, edition of The Seattle Times that we wanted to share with you. Joey has a loving spirit and helps people in our St Anne community whenever asked. 

    By  Joey Wilson 

    Mental Health Perspectives guest columnist 

    Having all odds against me is something I have dealt with since birth.  

    I was born three months prematurely and weighed 1 pound, spending the first five months of my life in an incubator. I was raised with five siblings by a single mother. I was 12 when a doctor told my mom I would have early onset schizophrenia by age 18.  

    At 19, my schizophrenia kicked in, and I could not function. I spent two months in Harborview Medical Center’s psychiatry ward and later went to an inpatient group at a mental health agency called Transitional Resources. The next three years were very tough: I had multiple stays in Harborview’s psych ward to keep myself safe. In fact, I spent my 21st and 22nd birthdays there. 

    I felt like the cycle was never going to stop and I was missing out on life at that age. 

    I felt very lost already as a high school dropout, but the voices I heard in my head were overwhelming, and I was afraid there was no future for me. I would have never guessed that being diagnosed with schizophrenia and going to Transitional Resources would give me a future and save my life. Getting a diagnosis felt like a restart. 

    During those stays in Harborview and while living in a Transitional Resources group home facility, I got the chance to reflect on my life. Pacing the group home hallways, I began to think: “I’m here for a reason.” 

    Around my 22nd birthday, I found the right medication, which I have been taking for more than 9 years. The medication is lifesaving, and I could not function without it. It can take years to find the right combination of drugs — one-size-fits-all does not work for a lot of people. I’ve found each pill works differently, and their effectiveness is  a case-by-case situation. 

    I’m thankful for a good life today. I have a community, the right medication, and a great support system — including my mom, three mentors and my case manager.  

    I began a part-time job at my neighborhood Safeway supermarket at 22. I got my first apartment just before my 23rd birthday. At 25, I enrolled in Bellevue College’s Occupational Life Skills Program, which serves people with learning disabilities. I worked extremely hard, taking three buses to my college classes and three buses back home every day, 5 days a week while also working my Safeway job on the weekends.  

    During my second and third year, I helped pass House Bill 1199, also known as Healthcare for Workers with Disabilities, while keeping up my studies. The bill makes it possible for individuals with disabilities to work as much as they like, allowing them to stay on Medicaid without age or income limits. Many clients at Transitional Resource mental health agency use this program, and so it really hit home for me to be able to give back. I was with Gov. Inslee when he signed it into law.

    Loving God, as we gather under the name of our patron, St. Anne, we thank you for the abundance of grace you have given this community throughout the years. We thank you for the many generations who have come before us; for their example of generosity in giving of their resources, talents and gifts, to build not only a church, but a community of faith, the Body of Christ. Bless our efforts to build on the rich heritage we have been given. Grant us vision of our future. Renew in us enthusiasm for our mission. Fill us with love for one another, that we may reflect to the world around us the perfect love of your Son. St. Anne, Mother of Mary, Grandmother of our Savior, pray for us. Amen.

  • Storage Clean-Up Project – Updates

    July 25, 2023




    Dearest St. Anne Community,

    Last month, with the generous help of several volunteers, we were able to successfully launch a clean-up of our storage spaces. The staff really enjoyed having the opportunity to bond with the community and we had a few laughs over some of the treasures found!

    After this first phase (with your help) we have successfully cleaned out and reorganized storage spaces in the old convent, on the main floor of the church, as well as the church basement.

    In fact, one of storage rooms is now repurposed as an “event” room – meaning our goal is to launch a sign-out system for anyone hosting a parish or school event. This way, we can all share items, such as easels, among the community – so please stay tuned on updates for that.

    Speaking of easels, before we move onto the other phases of the cleanup, we wanted to share some highlights from the project as well as some pictures from the clean up process.

    1. How many easels did we find during this process?
    a. 27
    b. 59
    c. 14
    d. 8

    2. How many basketball hoops were being stored in the old convent?
    a. 6
    b. 2.5
    c. 10
    d. 4

    3. What cardboard cutouts did we find?
    a. Marilyn Monroe
    b. Elvis
    c. MARVEL Heroes
    d. All of the Above

    4. How many brand new fedora hats did we find?
    a. 100
    b. 84
    c. 65
    d. 37

    5. True or false – we found a used toilet in a storage room:
    a. True
    b. False

    6. Knowledge check – can you correctly identify what this is?

    7. Who had more fun?
    a. Pat
    b. Ivana
    In the next phases, we’ll be working more long term to find better homes for certain items as well as slowly work our way through the office spaces and remaining storage rooms and cabinets. Please note that things have been reorganized and will continue to be as we wrap up the project, but don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any concerns or questions.
    Thank you again for all your prayers and support!

    Answers to Trivia:
    1. C – 14 easels
    2. D – 4 basketball hoops
    3. D – All of the above
    4. C – 65 Fedora Hats
    5. True – we found one used toilet
    6. Controls for the bell tower
    7. Who can tell?

  • Moment of Prayer (May 31, 2023)

    May 30, 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 Wednesday, 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.

  • 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.


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

  • Census Results

    April 27, 2023

    Wait, there was a census? What was that again?

    Over the last couple of months, we conducted a parish-wide census to get more accurate and up-to-date information about those who are actively involved in our community. Our goals were two-fold. One, as we launch into Partners in the Gospel, with the first phase happening in the fall, the results provide crucial datapoints about our community. And two, we are in the beginning stages of a migration to a new database system called ParishStaq and having accurate information will speed the merger along for us. People involved with St. Anne received a series of both emails and physical communications about the census, and we conducted in-person registration opportunities over multiple weekends.

    What do all the numbers mean?

    Our numbers represent those who voluntarily chose to be included in our database, and the numbers reflect various datapoints about our community. We encourage everyone to review the results! One thing to note – these numbers reflect those who chose to be associated with St. Anne, and the numbers are not necessarily reflective of weekly mass attendance or active participation in the community.

    How is the parish going to use this information?

    All information gathered is kept confidential and secure, and we will only use this information for communication purposes related to either parish or Archdiocesan initiatives and programs. Most practically, we gathered this information to facilitate the merger with ParishStaq. Once the merger is complete, you will have full control and access to your own information. From a strategic standpoint, the results of the census provide information in our strategic and financial planning. The staff will be actively reviewing the numbers when making ministry decisions and planning, and both the Parish Leadership Team and the Finance Council will review the results and use them in planning in the coming months.

    Will parishioners have a chance to learn more about these numbers and the planning process for the future?

    Absolutely! We are currently planning several initiatives to be rolled out in the summer and in the fall where parishioners will have an opportunity to get an inside look at the vision, strategy, and planning of the future of St. Anne’s. These initiatives will include more information about Partners in the Gospel, the roll out of ParishStaq, ways for parishioners to continue to be involved and serve our community, greater opportunities for community building, and so much more. Stay tuned!

    I missed the census, or I opted out. How does this affect me?

    If you missed the Census and still wish to participate, you will need to fill out a new parishioner registration on our website (click the big JOIN button at the top of our webpage!). If you opted out of participating in the census, please be aware that you have opted out of all communications with St. Anne and are not considered a registered parishioner.

    We wish to extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated! The information provided by all of you will be instrumental to all of us as staff.

  • Our staff is complete!! Welcome Brigid & Han

    April 19, 2023

    Join us in welcoming the two newest additions to our parish staff.


    Hi all, my name is Han (think Han Solo!) and I’m excited to be part of the team as your Parish Admin Assistant. I’m a Seattle native- my parents met in the ‘80s at the Vietnamese Martyrs church that used to be on Jackson- although I grew up in Renton (home parish: St. Anthony’s). I’m a current Blessed Sacrament parishioner, although I live just 10 minutes from St. Vincent de Paul in Federal Way. So I have many parishes that I feel “connected” to. I attended St. Edwards in south Seattle from Pre-K through 8th, Holy Names Academy (class of 2012!), and UW (class of 2016 – go Huskies!) with a degree in Sociology w/ an English minor. I was previously a Peer Minister at the Prince of Peace Newman Center at UW (2014-15). On Sundays, I assist with Sunday School at Blessed Sacrament co-teaching 3rd grade. My favorite things to do are hanging with family/friends, baking, and volunteering. I’m also down for a cup of coffee and more than happy to attempt to bake your favorite dessert! My favorite saints are: Padre Pio, St. Josemaria Escriva, and St. Therese of Lisieux (my patron saint “inherited” from my godmother). I love connecting with people (an outgoing introvert!) so don’t hesitate to pop by and chat.


    Brigid McMahan joins St. Anne’s Parish as the new Business Manager. Throughout her career she has been passionate about story-telling, relationship building and approaching problem-solving with creative and efficient solutions. Prior to joining St. Anne’s, Brigid worked in higher education, most recently at Northeastern University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Specifically, she has developed and overseen all aspects of international programs, from managing budgets to helping faculty and students to get the most out of their global experiences.  

    While new to the Seattle area, it feels like coming “home” to the Pacific Northwest after growing up near Eugene, Oregon, but living in Dallas and Boston for the past twelve years. Brigid completed her Bachelor of Arts in history at the University of Dallas and has a Master’s in Business Administration from Simmons University. She is also a published children’s book author and avid traveler – recently accomplishing a goal of going to all fifty states. Brigid is looking forward to getting to know the St. Anne community and welcomes a good pun or hike recommendation!

  • St. Vincent De Paul – A Story of Hope

    March 29, 2023

    A 55-year-old single mother who is homeless and addicted to heroin reached out to St. Vincent de Paul for help.  Her addiction story began at Ballard High School, drinking heavily with her schoolmates. That evolved into experimenting with various other drugs. She held various jobs after high school, her favorite being the office administrator at a local cemetery. She found job stability while raising her daughter (now 28 years old) as the fund raiser for her daughter’s sport’s program. As chairwoman, she raised $10,000 annually for the sport teams. Unfortunately, she fell into a downward spiral of relationships with drug addicts which culminated with losing her home and having to move all her belongings into storage. When we spoke she was enroute to a 30-day treatment facility in eastern Washington. She had successfully completed a 7-day detox at Providence, which helped her access this program.  After two weeks of waiting for an opening, she was finally on her way to check in. The treatment program guarantees transitional housing for her upon successful completion of the program, and she is appropriately excited about starting over. She needed $396.20 to prevent her belongings from being sold since she has no income at this point. She will need her belongings when she completes the program and moves into transitional housing. With significant support, her life could change forever. You are part of that support and she thanks you. – Laurie Finn

  • 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.

    Hallow is the #1 Catholic app worldwide and includes over 5,000 audio-guided sessions designed to help you grow closer to God and develop a daily habit of prayer. Good news – you don’t need an app to use Hallow. All content is also available online.

Each week, we’ll focus on a theme based on the Sunday Gospel and pray alongside related passages from the Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis, the secnod most widely read Christian book of all time after the Bible. As we walk alongside Him for forty days leading up to Easter, we hope to grow in humility such that we might imitate Christ in daily life.

  • A Delightful Soup Supper

    March 2, 2023

    Parishioners delight in each other's company...and some homemade soup of course!

    Almost 50 parishioners gathered this past Wednesday night; young adults solicited advice from the more experienced crowd and everyone reveled in stories. The variety of homemade soup was amazing! Of course, many returned for a third helping of soup, but it was gratitude and laughter that overflowed that night. Some people chose to bring deserts and of course a few people felt inspired to sign up to serve next week. Many stayed for Stations of the Cross. All in all, it was a fabulous night and community and prayer!

    Join us every Wednesday and consider signing up to bring a soup of your choice. Volunteers are also needed to help setup tables and chairs before the 5pm Mass.

    February 4, 2023

    Parishioners attend Alpha Conference

    Last Fall we hosted our first parish-wide Alpha Session. For ten weeks, twenty-five parishioners connected and grew together over dinner, a video, and conversation. Some of those parishioners joined Fr. Colin, Taniele, and Jessica and the national Alpha Conference hosted in Fort Lauderdale from January 26th – 28th. During the conference, they interacted with other Catholics hosting Alpha, took a deep dive into topics on listening and understanding those who have left the Church, and learned how to make our churches places of hospitality. There was a strong connection built over such a short period of time. We stayed together in an Airbnb and had community time that allowed us to get to know each other’s stories. If you see any of these people feel free to ask them about their experience of the conference!

  • 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!

    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:

    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.

    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?”

    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.

  • 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.

    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.
