CAPITAL CAMPAIGN UPDATE -  The Sustaining Hope for the Future
is well underway.  Please prayerfully consider a three-year
pledge to the campaign.  Our parish goal is $808,167 over three years.  
The Diocese will receive 60% and our parish 40% of all funds received up
to our goal.  Campaign proceeds received after our goal is met will be
60% for our parish and 40% for our Diocese.
 Please review the campaign
material, pray about your response and continue to spread the positive
message about this important effort.   

Mark your Calendar – The Catholic Charities truck sponsored by St. Ann
SVDP will be here on the weekend of November 1st and 2nd.  All gently
used clothing, small furniture and small appliances are welcome.  No
Knick knacks please.   

Babysitting is Back for the 9:30am Mass -   
Child care will be available
each week for children ages 6 months to 5 years beginning Sunday,
November 2nd during the 9:30am mass.  Adults and teens will be
available to read and play with your child(ren) while you enjoy mass.  
Babysitting will take place in the Kindergarten room on the lower level of
the Franciscan Wing.  We would love help!  This is also a great
opportunity to earn service hours.  If you have any questions or would like

SPONSORS/GODPARENTS To be a godparent for Baptism, a person
must be 16 years or older and a practicing and fully initiated Catholic,
having completed the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and
Eucharist.  If married, the union must be recognized by the Catholic
Church.  One Catholic godparent is required; 2 godparents (one male &
one female) is the ordinary and recommended practice.  Keep in mind the
purpose of a sponsor is to give good example and support in the Catholic
faith of the baptized.  Documentation of eligibility for all Catholic
godparents are required from the Catholic Church where they are
registered and attend weekly mass.  If you have eligibility questions,
please call (302)654-8504 before choosing any godparents.  The next
required Baptismal Preparation class will be
Thursday, November 13th
at 7pm in the St. Ann’s School Library.
 To register, please call the
rectory at (302)654-5519 or stannschurch1@verizon.net.

***Note that St. Ann’s will keep to the normal weekend mass schedule
for All Saints & All Souls Day (November 1 & 2).  There is not a vigil
mass on Friday October 31, 2014.
