From the Pastor’s desk… I am happy to announce Mrs. Stacy Solomon
as the new principal of St. Ann’s School beginning July 1, 2015. Mrs.
Solomon is a graduate of Padua academy, holds a Bachelor of Science
degree in Human Services, Education and Public Policy from the University
of Delaware and a Master of Education degree in Elementary Studies from
Wilmington University. Currently Mrs. Solomon is the Principal of
Instruction at Gateway Lab School in Wilmington Delaware. She comes to
the role with a commitment to the faith formation of young people, the
belief in the academic achievement and well-being of students and a
desire to partner with parents and the parish community in Catholic
education. We welcome her to St. Ann’s!
From the Director of Music Ministry, Jordan Irazabal - The Adult Choir
is looking to expand! I want to cordially invite you to attend one of our
open rehearsals! The Adult Choir rehearses every Wednesday evening
from mid-August to late-May and we sing weekly at mass, as well as the
annual St. Ann’s Christmas Concert. We are currently seeking male and
female voices (ages 16+) to give us a try and hopefully join our wonderful
group. I’ll host an open rehearsal on April 29 at 7pm-8:30pm. We look
forward to singing with you.

2015 Annual Appeal - Thank you to everyone who contributed to the
campaign last weekend. If you are still considering a pledge, there is still
time. It is an opportunity for each of us to unite as a Catholic community
and to reach out to serve others - the hungry, the homeless, the
unemployed, the distressed, the unchurched, our children and the elderly.
Please consider helping this wonderful and much needed cause.
|The Parish, founded in 1869, is located in the “Forty-Acres” sections of Wilmington on the
square block at Gilpin Avenue and Union Street.
