58th Anniversary of the World Day of Prayer For Vocations – April 25
The purpose of World Day of Prayer for Vocations is to publicly fulfill the Lord’s instruction to, “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest” (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). As a climax to a prayer that is continually offered throughout the Church, it affirms the primacy of faith and grace in all that concerns vocations to the priesthood and to the consecrated life. While appreciating all vocations, the Church concentrates its attention this day on vocations to the ordained ministries (priesthood and diaconate), consecrated lifenin all its forms (male and female religious life, societies of apostolic life, consecrated virginity), secular institutes in their diversity of services and membership, and to the missionary life.

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 link is 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, or with deleting a sign 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.

For Francis, Easter was a vibrant reality that gave light and hope and even energy for his daily journey with Christ to the Father. He teaches us that the real saints (the Easter saints) are the quite human, quite natural people in whom, through the Easter purification and transformation, what is human appears afresh in its total originality and beauty. (Pope Benedict XVI) Claim that Easter energy for yourself in your daily journey with Christ. Live like an “Easter saint!“
(Thank you to Sr. Joanne for sharing these Franciscan reflections with us.)
