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. 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 Fr. Tom

Dear Parishioners,

It was with a heavy heart that I announced to you last weekend that, effective June 1st, I will be transferred from our collaborative to a new assignment at the parishes of St. Rose and and St. Agnes in Topsfied and Middleton. The pastor of St. Rose and St. Agnes, Fr. Michael Medas, is an Air Force chaplain. He recently received and generously answered a call to serve our Catholic men and women in the military who are sacrificing so much for our safety. Because of my familiarity with the parishes (I was assigned there during the summer of 2013 between my priesthood ordination and my last year studying in Rome) the Cardinal will be sending me there for the next year to care for the people while the pastor is away.

It has been an honor to serve you during these past two years in Dorchester. There has certainly been no lack of excitement during my time with you!  Over and over again I have marveled at your patience, understanding, and generosity toward me.  Wherever I go I will always carry the wisdom and love you shared with me during my time with you.  While there is a heaviness in having to say goodbye in June, it is gratitude, not sorrow, that I feel most strongly as I reflect upon the years I have spent coming to know and love you as your priest.  Christ has blessed me so richly through you. May we always be one in Him and with one another in our shared communion in His Body and Blood.

In prayerful gratitude,

Fr. Tom
