Dear People of Saint Anne,
We find ourselves journeying through a most uncommon Advent season. Over the past six months, our parish has been living in confusing and challenging times due to the pandemic. With the Holy Spirit guiding us, we continue to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ for one another and our surrounding community.
Saint Anne Catholic Community has adapted new ways to serve our community during these trying times by providing weekend Mass and Daily Reflections through e-mail blasts and on our website. We joyfully – and safely – celebrate daily and weekend Masses and the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Confirmation, and Marriage, thanks to the effort of so many staff and volunteers. We also have been able to provide in person learning for our students at Saint Anne Parish School. To those of you who give so much of yourselves,thank you. You make it possible to worship together and serve together.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our faithful parishioners who have financially supported us through this time. At the same time, with limitations on Mass attendance, our collections continue to suffer on a weekly basis. The contributions of parishioners at Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Masses constitute a sizable portion of our annual budget to fund vital ministries and areas of operation for our parish. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Please know that you are a gift to our Saint Anne Catholic Community family. Your presence, whether in spirit or in person, means more to our local Church than you can imagine. Below, you will see our current schedule of Masses for the Christmas Feast both in person and on our website.
May the Lord be with each one of you during the Advent and Christmas Seasons. I continue to pray for you and ask that you continue to pray for me.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Rev. Bernard J. Pietrzak, Pastor
