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

Please join us as Fr. Putnam celebrates the 10AM Mass at St. Brendan Parish on Sunday, August 30th . Fr. Rich has celebrated Mass at St. Brendan’s and at The Keystone building for the last eight years. He grew up here, attended Boston State Teachers College, and taught at Don Bosco High School. His Salesian Order has recently called him back to New York to work on retreats after his years of service at the Boys & Girls Club in East Boston. Please join us in our parish hall for a very special farewell breakfast event following the 10AM Mass for this dedicated priest. We wish Fr. Rich the very best. Everyone is welcome to attend. Hope to see you Sunday, August 30th .

Message from the Pastor

July 19, 2015 

Dear Parishioners, 

It’s been a very busy week for the parishes! We are pleased to welcome Fr. Tom Rafferty to the collaborative as our summer assistant. Fr. Rafferty will be with us until September 1st when he will begin a new assignment. Please extend to him a warm welcome! 

September also marks the beginning of the new assignments of Fr. Putnam and Fr. McCarthy. It is with a heavy heart that we will have to say farewell to these two priests that have served us so very well. 

Given these looming departures, we will no longer be able to provide Mass to the residents of Keystone on Saturdays at 5:15pm. Last Saturday I visited the community to break the news to them. They were naturally saddened by the announcement but were very understanding of the constraints that come from having fewer priests. We are currently working on ways of providing transportation from Keystone to the Vigil Mass at St. Brendan and looking at options for offering a monthly communion service at the facility. The last Keystone Mass will take place on August 1st . 

Many of you have expressed concern about the instability we have experienced as a collaborative over the past year. I have been in contact with the Archdiocesan clergy personnel office and have communicated our collaborative’s serious need for the stable leadership of an effective pastor. They are working hard to find the right priest to lead us, but it may take time for whomever they choose to transition from his current assignment to taking the reins here in Dorchester. Please pray for the Cardinal as he discerns whom he will send to us (and pray for me as we await the announcement and arrival of the new pastor). 


Fr. Tom
