The church will be decorated simply for Easter this year, but if you would like to donate Easter Lilies to decorate the church, please drop them off at the church at one of the Holy Week services. Thank you!
A huge thank you to Jolie for all the work she does to bring us wonderful liturgies both in person and on Zoom – we so appreciate all the hard work she put in to make this a meaningful and prayerful Lent and Easter season for our community. A big thank you to all of our musicians – in Church and on Zoom – for adding to our prayer with their music throughout Holy Week. Thanks also to Shonna for pitching in to help with some of the Holy Week Zoom services so that Jolie could focus on services in the church, and to all those who volunteered to be readers at the many services. And a big thank you to Adan and Sr. Ana for keeping our church clean for our community so that we could gather together safely. Thanks to the generous St. Ann parishioners who offered to contribute items to the Sunday Lunch Easter meal, as well. Our community is truly blessed.
Virtual Discussion Group – Tuesdays at 1:30 PM
Craig’s Lenten discussion group will continue meeting through the Easter Season, on Tuesdays at 1:30 PM, however the group will not be meeting on April 6th. After using the “Again & Again daily devotional during Lent, the group will discuss new materials for the Easter Season. (Craig will send these new readings out to the group.) An email with the Zoom link will be sent out to the group each week before Tuesday morning. Contact the parish office if you have any questions.
Craig’s Corner – Reflections
Craig will continue writing a weekly reflection during Lent, which will be posted on our website and emailed to the parish email list each week. Here is a link to “Craig’s Corner” reflection post for this week. https://wp.me/p91S6R-15w Craig will not be posting a reflection next week, as the staff is taking the week after Easter off.

**Important ** Information about Mass during Covid
Reminder: We require everyone – including children over 2 – to wear a mask during Mass, and maintain social distancing. (One household per pew!) We ask that parishioners enter by the front doors only so that staff can check you in and keep an accurate count. Hand sanitizer is also provided for use upon entry and before communion. If you need assistance signing up, please call or email the parish office.
Also – because we have a beautiful old church, we do not have a state of the art ventilation system. After consulting with experts, we have determined that in order to keep parishioners safe, we must keep the doors open during Mass for ventilation. When the weather is cold outside, it can get quite chilly in the church, so please dress appropriately if you choose to attend Mass. Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe!
Prayer Service on Zoom – Sunday at 11:00 AM
We will continue to offer the Prayer service on Zoom for those members of our community who are unable to attend Mass, so that we can continue to gather together in prayer. The link for the Zoom prayer service is emailed out through the parish email list on Saturday. On Easter Sunday, the Zoom service at 11:00 AM will be a livestream of the Mass at St. Ann.

For St. Francis, the spiritual Easter was not a one-time event, but a journey, a process. Like St. Paul, Francis could declare: All I want to know is Christ and the power flowing from His Resurrection! This knowledge and power enabled Francis to take the Cross-road which leads to glory. Let us cry out with St Francis: ALL I WANT TO KNOW IS CHRIST AND THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION! We are an Easter people. Let’s celebrate!! Happy Easter!!
(Thank you to Sr. Joanne for sharing these Franciscan reflections with us.)
