I act as children do
who cannot read;
I say quite simply
to the good God
what I want to tell Him,
and He always

Evangelization and Outreach at St. Ann’s and St. Brendan’s
A few weeks ago inspired by a daily Mass homily, a group of
parishioners at St. Brendan’s approached Fr Drea and asked to
form an Evangelization Committee. This committee will serve to
work on improving overall Mass attendance in the collaborative
and provide outreach to the collaborative neighborhoods regarding
Catholic life at St. Ann’s and St. Brendan’s. Recently a
few of the parishioners have been going around the neighborhoods
distributing bulletins and postcards with Mass time information
and serving as an invitation to become involved in collaborative
life. We applaud the grassroots initiative of these
parishioners and invite others to join together to strengthen our
wonderful collaborative. If you are interested in learning more,
please contact Amy Mulvey at the parish office and your name
will be given to the group.
Current Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Whether you assist with communion at Mass or bring it to the
sick/homebound, our parish collaborative will be having a day of
recollection for all involved, followed by a formal installation
ceremony and blessing. We're also trying to better coordinate
our efforts in reaching out to our homebound parishioners. For
all those who bring communion to others, please provide Amy
Mulvey with your contact information, and the names/
addresses of the homebound person. Please help us to continue
building up this important ministry in our parish collaborative!
We have many homebound parishioners who would be evergrateful
to be able to receive Holy Communion on a regular basis!
We are also in need of lectors and help distributing communion
at our weekend Masses. Please leave your contact information
with Amy Mulvey in the main office and Fr. Fiorillo
will get in touch with you soon about training and installation.
