The Parish of St. Ann is a Roman Catholic community, united by Baptism and fed by the Word and the Eucharist.  We worship God, learn and grow, serve our neighbors, rejoice and mourn together. We celebrate God’s providence in putting us in this beautiful place and we strive to be people who welcome all.

St Ann’s Parish would like to extend a warm welcome to priests interested in visiting our beach town community located at Bethany Beach DE, also known as the Quiet Resort.  

What are we seeking? 

St Ann’s is a very active year round community, and during the summer season we experience a significant influx of Catholic visitors. This cycle typically runs May through September. It is at this time St Ann’s is inviting visiting clergy to stay at our rectory and enjoy a vacation week in exchange for assistance in presiding at one or more Eucharistic liturgies. _____( # week/ # weekend ? )      

What are we offering?  

1. Our goal is to provide a mutually enjoyable week at St Ann’s at the beach by providing our guests lodging, which will include benefits such as: 

  • A weekly pass to our neighborhood amenities; this includes two club houses, two outdoor swimming pools, tennis & pickle ball courts, and exercise room.  
  • Activities extended by our parishioners, such as: Cookouts & Barbecue’s, Boating, etc.
  • Or maybe just relax and hang out at Bethany Beach restaurants, boardwalk, and beach side summer concerts, which is just blocks away. (Bike, Walk or Trolley Car)   

Bethany Beach is a small coastal town in Delaware. It’s known for its wide, boardwalk-backed beach. North of town, Delaware Seashore State Park is a barrier island with miles of beaches between Rehoboth and Indian River bays and the Atlantic Ocean. To the south, Fenwick Island State Park has dunes and a surf area. The shoreline, fields and forests of Holts Landing State Park attract birdlife like herons and osprey.
