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

Dear Friends, 

After consulting the people of both of our parishes as well as the joint pastoral council, we will be launching our summer evening weekday Mass experiment beginning on Thursday June 18th. Every Thursday from the 18th of June until the 3rd of September there will be a daily Mass at 7PM. Prior to Mass, beginning at 6:15PM, the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be made available so as to expand opportunities to receive the gift of Christ’s mercy in your busy schedules. Fr. Soper and I are hoping that by having a Thursday evening celebration of the Eucharist more people will be able to experience the low-key beauty of Mass during the week. 

The 7PM Mass on Thursday will take the place of the normally scheduled 9AM Mass at St. Ann. It will take place in the lower church of St. Ann during June and July and then switch to the day chapel of St. Brendan during August and September. 

Any currently scheduled intentions for 9AM Masses on Thursday will be remembered at the 7PM Mass. Stay tuned for activities and events scheduled following Mass on Thursday nights. 


Fr. Tom

Summer Masses at St Ann

We are so blessed at St Ann's to have air conditioning in our Lower Church! 

We will start to celebrate Mass in the Lower Church this Sunday, June 7th @ the 10:30AM Mass. Going forward we will celebrate the 4:00PM Vigil, 10:30AM Sunday and Daily Masses downstairs in the Lower Church for the remainder of the summer. 

The 8:30AM Sunday Mass will be designated as our handicap accessible Mass. This 8:30AM Mass will continue to be celebrated in the Upper Church to accommodate those who have difficulty going down to the Lower Church. 

This weekend the 4:00PM Vigil on June 6th will remain in the Upper Church for the Feast of Corpus Christi.
