Parish Renewal

From time to time the Parish sponsors programs that encourage small groups of parishioners to meet and share their faith.  We’re between programs right now, but are actively evaluating programs to be offered in 2020.  We’ll provide more information here once we’ve identified our next faith-sharing opportunity.

In February of 2020, St. Ann Parish will be sponsoring a program called Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible.  This 8-week program is intended to tell the story of salvation history from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church.
