    Learn the Faith

    By studying the Gospel, we learn of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We learn who we are and how we to live in order to enjoy happiness and peace in this life and the next. We learn through assisting parents in sharing our faith in the children’s faith formation and Sacramental preparation. We have enrichment for adults, faith sharing groups, scripture study and more.

Serving others is serving God.  Learn about our outreach to parishioners and the community, by bringing Communion to the sick/shut ins.

    All Are Welcome.

    Whenever we gather in the name of the Lord, He is present. As a community of faith we are invited to experience the incredible grace found in the Sacraments. We each come with a story to tell; we each come with an experience of God to be reverenced and celebrated. All of this leads us to the Eucharistic Table where God, in His great love, offers us His Body and Blood. We invite you to gather with us to listen to God’s story. We invite you to recognize the Risen Lord in the Breaking of the Bread. We invite you to come and tell us your story. St. Anne is a place dedicated to God, where His story and our story become one.
