Prayer Requests for the Sick and Deceased to be included in the Prayers of the Faithful at weekend masses in St. Ann and Our Lady of Guadalupe are accepted for only two weekends in a row. When requesting prayers for those with long-term illnesses, please add their names in the Book of Intentions available at both churches.
Please remember that the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus is just as fully present in the Blood of Christ (Wine) as in the Body of Christ (Bread).
If you need a “gluten-free” (low gluten) host for Holy Communion, please let the sacristan know before Mass. If you don’t let the sacristan know, there won’t be enough gluten-free hosts for all who need them. Those receiving gluten-free hosts should go at the end, to the priest’s line ONLY.
Thank you for your cooperation.
First of all, thanks for asking.
You are being enriched in every way for all generosity, which through us produces thanksgiving to God, for the administration of this public service is not only supplying the needs of the holy ones but is also overflowing in many acts of thanksgiving to God.2 CORINTHIANS 9:11-12
We’re all in some uncertainty here. Life goes on, but we’re unsure of how we can meet its many needs in these – or any – times.
Our parish has much the same difficulty. We continue through with our mission: serving our parishioners, providing spiritual resources for all of you, teaching, celebrating, worshipping;. and, of course, our support of those in our community who are less fortunate must continue.
All of this requires resources of one kind or another. Even when those resources are something like a building, we still need to provide funds to keep things going.
We need your help.
Now, we realize that some of you have financial challenges right now. But, if you are financially able to do so at this time, would you consider continuing your support of the parish, so that we can continue our good work? You can drop your contribution in the “SECURE” mail box outside the door to the Parish Office (on the right side of the door) or send a check for your regular donation to us in the mail at:
St. Ann Church
691 Garfield Avenue
Bethany Beach, DE 19930
Better yet, consolidate your donations and send us a single check, rather than having to remember each week. And, best yet: Consider giving on line, as many of your fellow parishioners already do. Just click below, and you can sign up in just a few minutes.
And whatever you are able to do, please pray for our parish and for those who look to us in these difficult times.
