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

Letter from the Pastor
Dear Friends,
This weekend, both of our parishes kick-off the 2017 Grand Annual Campaign! This is a very exciting moment in the life of our parishes in that we are working together to ensure a strong and prosperous future for Catholics in our section of Dorchester.
Both the new Confessional project at St. Ann's and the Heating Boiler project at St. Brendan's will greatly enhance the overall atmosphere of our two churches from a capital improvement standpoint. As I detailed in my recent letters to the parishes, the Grand Annual Campaign has been used in both of our parishes over the years to support much needed improvements that are outside of the annual parish budgets. This year we follow that tradition that has helped both parishes to improve and enhance our beautiful churches in order to create an even more welcoming setting for parishioners and visitors alike.
I know that I can count on every parishioner to make this year's Grand Annual a tremendous success! I sincerely thank you in advance for your support.
As I mentioned above, the Grand Annual begins this weekend. All parishioners have been asked to return their pledge card to church at this time. If you did not bring your pledge card to Mass with you, please bring it next weekend or mail it to the parish office this week. (If you did not receive a Grand Annual pledge card in the mail there are packets available at the entrance to the church.) As indicated, you may make your gift in a one-time installment or in a couple of installments, if easier. The hope is that we may encourage you to take a gentle step in increasing your support. If you would like to make a gift of appreciated securities or as part of your yearly IRA distribution to take advantage of tax benefits, please contact that parish office and we will be able to assist you in making your gift. And as always, ALL gifts are fully tax deductible.
Together, we can make this effort a great success for St. Ann's and St. Brendan's. Let us pray as one for the intercession of our two patron saints that God will bless our parishes through this year's Grand Annual.
Thank you and God bless you all!
Father Michael E. Drea

Notice for All 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! 
Become an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion or Lector 
We have many homebound parishioners who would be ever-grateful 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.
