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

Father Drea welcomes 

Father Patrick Fiorillo 

to the Collaborative of 

St. Ann and St. Brendan 

following his ordination 

at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.

From the Fr Fiorillo

Greetings Parishioners of St. Ann's and St. Brendan's!! 

My name is Fr. Patrick Fiorillo, and as many of you already know, I am the new parochial vicar here, replacing Fr. Macdonald. I am originally from Franklin, MA and lived in Hartford, CT for five years where I studied music production and recording at the Hartt School of Music. It was there that I heard the calling to the priesthood, and so after graduating, I entered St. John's Seminary in Brighton where I spent the past six years. I was ordained in May, and moved here four weeks ago. Thanks to your warm welcome, I am thoroughly enjoying myself so far, and look forward to getting to know everyone over the coming weeks, months, and years. 

Yours in Christ, Fr. Fiorillo

From the Pastor

Summer Vacation Time is upon us! 

All of us at St. Ann’s and St. Brendan’s hope that you have a restful and enjoyable summer vacation wherever you may find yourself during the beautiful summer days in New England. As you head off from Dorchester, please be sure to remember St. Ann’s and St. Brendan’s during the summer months. Although a more relaxed pace takes over, the good work of proclaiming Jesus Christ very much continues here – the sacraments are celebrated, the outreach continues in a variety of forms, visitors are welcomed and year-round parishioners are in and out, and yes, the regular expenses continue even in the summer. Your weekly offertory contribution is of great help during the summer – while you are away you can set a recurring gift through our on-line giving portal on both parish web site’s homepage. 

Thank you for remembering our parishes while you are away!
