History of Saint Ann Parish



Saint Ann Pray for Us

You were favored by God and called to be the

Mother of the Most Holy Virgin Mary.

You are thus blessed to be Grandmother of our Savior Jesus Christ.

By your intimacy with your most pure daughter and her divine Son,

protect this parish and family dedicated to

your saintly protection and intercession.

In your kindness, obtain for us the grace to love as a child of God.

Watch over our family.

Secure for us the strength of faith. Guide us to

perform faithfully all of our daily duties.

With God’s Mercy and the Divine Assistance help us in our time of need

and teach us to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary.


Our Patron, St Ann

Our patron,

 St. Brendan the Navigator,

once prayed as he was traveling, 

"Lord, help me,

for your sea is so big and my boat is so small."

  May Our Lord,

through this Parish Community,

help you navigate this big sea of life and guide you safely Home.

Our Patron, St Brendan

                    Message from the Pastor

Welcome Fr. Michael Drea!

On June 1, 2009 the Reverend Michael E. Drea was appointed the Tenth Pastor of St. Paul's Parish and the Senior Chaplain to the Harvard Catholic Chaplaincy by His Eminence, Seán Patrick Cardinal O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston. Father Drea studied for the sacred priesthood at St. John's Seminary in Brighton earning a Master of Divinity and was ordained on May 22, 2004 at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston. At the time of his ordination he was assigned as Parochial Vicar to St. Ann's Parish in the Wollaston section of Quincy. While there he began a series of evangelization programs for young adults including a highly successful Theology on Tap program. Prior to ordination, Father Drea served as a transitional deacon at St. Mary of the Nativity Parish in Scituate Harbor. Father Drea was born and raised in Whitman, Massachusetts and is the oldest of four children. His belief in and commitment to Catholic education was nurtured in his youth having graduated from St. Bridget's School in Abington and Cardinal Spellman High School in Brockton. Father Drea is a loyal Boston College Eagle having earned his Bachelor of Arts in 1988 and a Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration in 1994. Following his undergraduate education he began a career in institutional advancement and alumni affairs at Cardinal Spellman High School and St. Sebastian's School in Needham. In the fall of 2009, Father Drea was invested as a priest-knight in the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem at St. Paul's Cathedral in Worcester.

Fr. Drea joins St. Ann/St. Brendan Collaborative as Pastor on January 11, 2016.
