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

Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy

He is Risen!

He is Risen, Indeed!

Happy Easter

Message from Fr Makos

May 11, 2015 

Dear Parishioners, 

What a difference a Season makes! I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather after our record setting Winter. Lake Orion Michigan where I have been for the last several months is just starting to get the word that Spring is here and Summer is on the way! I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your prayerful support over these past couple of months, it has truly been a humbling experience. Thank you to everyone who sent a card or letter of encouragement during my stay at Guest House. Many of you have been candid about your own struggles with alcoholism and other addictions. Addiction does not discriminate. Again, thank you so much for your support during this time in my recovery. I have not felt this well in many years and I look forward to being back in Boston. I have enjoyed bragging about Boston and that Dorchester is the best place to live! I will be coming back to the collaborative Wednesday May 20th until Sunday May 24th. Guest House sends us back on a Therapeutic Leave to our respective dioceses which allows us to begin to transition back into full time ministry. After the Therapeutic Leave I will return to Guest House for a short time and then be back to Boston for good. At this point I am not sure of the exact date but will most likely be around the middle of June. I look forward to seeing many of you on the weekend of May 24th. Please join me in thanking Fr. Tom Macdonald and Fr. Paul Soper for their dedication and service to Saint Ann and Saint Brendan. Similarly, I thank Fr. Rouse, Fr. McCarthy, Fr. Putnam and Deacon Richie for their service. I am equally grateful to the staff of Saint Ann and Saint Brendan for their dedication to the people of our collaborative. I look forward to seeing all of you very soon! 

Peace and God Bless, Fr. Makos
