The Saint Anne Women’s Club celebrated Christmas at Makray Memorial Golf Club on Tuesday, December 14. It was a wonderful evening featuring a delightful buffet dinner, entertainment by the Barrington High School Madrigal Singers and the camaraderie of members, their guests and many on our parish staff.
The next general meeting of the Saint Anne Women’s Club will be Tuesday February 8 at 7:00 pm featuring members of the Faith Justice ministry of Saint Anne to speak on Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si. This initiative addresses the global Catholic climate movement. More information will be published next week.

Friendship in Marriage and Family
All women of Saint Anne are welcome to attend the next meeting of the Saint Anne Women’s Club on Tuesday, October 12 when Michael Hugo, MAPS, MSW, LCSW will speak to club members on the subject of Friendship in Marriage and Family. Michael Hugo formerly served as the Youth Faith Formation Minister at Saint Anne Church. The meeting will take place at 7:00 pm in the hospitality room of the church and via ZOOM.
A word that is not often associated with discussions about marriage and family is the word “friendship”. We readily talk about communication, managing conflict, date nights, etc., and we will talk about those aspects of family/marriage life. Beyond that, we can also view “friendship” as a paradigm for marriage and family life. In John’s Gospel, Jesus clarifies that the highest level of relationship to which he calls us is friendship with him and, necessarily, with all others.
Welcome to the Saint Anne Women’s Club.
It is with great pleasure that I invite every woman of the Saint Anne Catholic Community to join our Club. We are a group of faith-filled women who take pride in serving our Community and other local communities through prayer, hospitality, and friendships. Our meetings and activities are announced in the Clarion and in emails sent to members.
As we proceed into our 2021-2022 Club year, we hope and pray that we can offer as much as possible of our usual programming so that we can meet in person. Without that certainty, all meetings and events that are scheduled to take place on the campus of Saint Anne will also be brough to you via Zoom or other virtual connection.
The Club is committed to helping bring our Community and neighbors closer together to get to know each other, and to help each other grow and connect as women of God.
If you have been a member in the past, you will recognize many of the events that have become established traditions of our Club. The Christmas party will return to Makray Memorial Golf Club and we will host full Masses for the Mass of Remembrance and the Installation Mass. The Saint Anne Women’s Club will offer Group outings and the blessing of Easter baskets followed by an Easter egg hunt on Holy Saturday. The Club will communicate to members as circumstances change.
Most all events are open to all women of the Saint Anne Parish, but with your membership, you will be able to plan your participation by receiving regular communication and using the Club directory to stay in touch with other members. You can join our Club by clicking Membership Registration.
I encourage you to volunteer and see how rewarding that experience can be. There are volunteer opportunities for everyone, regardless of the time you have available to help. THANK YOU! Click Volunteer Opportunities to learn about the many service opportunities we offer.
Through our Club, I truly believe anything is possible. I look forward to getting to know all our members and helping the women of our parish get involved in doing God’s work and serving him.
We welcome new ideas, charitable gifts to our many causes and recommendations on how to improve the Club. Please contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions about the Club.
