Holy Week – Thank you’s!
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 of course thank you to Father Patrick for being willing to add extra Masses so that all who wanted to attend could do so. A big thank you to Adan and Sr. Ana for keeping our church clean for our community so that we can 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.

Craig’s Lenten discussion group will continue meeting through the Easter Season, on Tuesdays at 1:30 PM, Craig will send new reading materials out to the group to use during the Easter Season. 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.

Sign up Link for Saturday & Sunday Masses in April
Please use the link below to sign up to attend Saturday & Sunday Masses at St. Ann for the month of April. Please be sure to check the date of the Mass you are signing up for so you sign up for the Mass you want to attend! We also ask that you sign up at least an hour before the Mass. If you are willing to be a reader at Mass, please write “reader” in the comments when you sign up. Thank you!
The links are also available on the home page of the parish website!
**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.

Easter: life after death. Thank God, there is RESURRECTION! Look around, look at the new life that is emerging: spring is here, bulbs are bringing forth flowers, vaccine shots are easing lockdowns, ashes are being swept away, new relationships are forming or deepening or being healed. All because Jesus is risen from the dead and lives among us. What is new in you? Recognize the transformation that is happening and enthusiastically embrace it! Join in the dance of the Lord’s jubilation!!
(Thank you to Sr. Joanne for sharing these Franciscan reflections with us.)
