At Saint Anne, our commitment to life-long faith formation is one of the cornerstones of our faith community. The ministries of the Faith Formation and Education Commission offer opportunities for adults and children in a variety of settings. Participants of all ages engage in meaningful dialogue and learn to live out our gospel values through participation in formation and education opportunities, prayer and reflection, Mass celebrations and service work, both within and beyond our faith community.
