Share In The Spirit - Next week, parishioners throughout the diocese will be asked to help make the dream of a Catholic education a reality for struggling Catholic families. Monies raised through this collection coupled with the diocese’s tuition assistance endowment provides financial assistance to hundreds of deserving families who seek a Catholic education for their children but who cannot afford the full cost of tuition.Through this collection our Bishop is reaching out to believing and worshiping Catholics like you to assist him in ensuring that the Catholic commitment to total education of our children does not fade away because people cannot afford it. Since the church has the mission to educate and since this mission directly affects the quality of life we experience as Catholics, all of us have a stake in Catholic education. It is in light of this reality that we ask you to consider supporting next week’s Share in the Spirit collection. God bless you for your goodness.

Feed My Lambs, Feed My Sheep Food Collection Expanded - The Food Collections in Saint Ann are normally for Thanksgiving and during Lent. Someone has been leaving bags of food just about every week since Lent of this year. The Knights have taken the food to Saint Paul Parish "Feed the Hungry" Food Bank. The Lord might be reminding us that those less fortunate need to eat all year round. Thus, a Knights of Columbus bin will be placed in the Vestibule of our church for anyone who may wish to donate food at any time. The Monsignor John DEWSON Council 13821, Knights of Columbus, will collect the donated food weekly and take the food to Saint Paul Church "Feed the Hungry" Food Bank. The Food Collection at Thanksgiving and during Lent will continue with special emphasis.
