Dear Parishioners,
We have much to celebrate this week! Since 1899 St. Ann School has
provided a Catholic education for thousands of students. Year after year,
day in and day out, our school has been a constant and enduring presence
in our parish community and surrounding neighborhood. Put on a firm
foundation by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, our school
continues to thrive. National Catholics Schools Week January 25-31, 2015
is a time to celebrate our accomplishments, and to give thanks for those
who sacrifice to make a St. Ann's Catholic education possible. It also
provides an opportunity to show case the outstanding work of our students
and faculty by opening our doors to you our supportive parishioners and
to prospective students and parents looking for excellence in education.
Please spread the word about St. Ann's School by inviting someone to our
open house and to take a tour of our school anytime during the week.  We
are part of a great 116 year tradition for which we should all be very proud.  
Listed below is our calendar of events but for more info, please feel free to
contact the rectory at 654-5519 or email stannschurch1@verizon.net.  
Please join us in celebrating this year's theme:
Faith, Knowledge,
 I look forward to seeing you there. Thank you for your faithful
   ----  Prayerfully yours, Father Mink
