St. Ann’s Connections was born from the Diocesan Pastoral Plan that saw a need for more events for families and couples. After doing a survey of our parishioners, we at St. Ann’s decided to partner with a company who would help us to grow some fun, community building, and skill building events!
We are calling the events “CONNECTIONS” because we believe that by forming better spiritual connections, community connections, family connections, and marital connections, we can strengthen our faith and life as a whole. Our children are more likely to stay in the Church if we have better connections to it and to the community of faith! Our marriages are more likely to make it through the rough patches if we have a community of Christians to lean on!
Be on the lookout for our monthly events and spread the word to those people who you are connected to, so that we might deepen our “CONNECTIONS” to each other at St. Ann’s and grow the Kingdom of God.
Alpha-The Marriage Course – Begins Tues June 15th at 6:30
The Marriage Course is a 7 session course that will help couples to strengthen their marriages and relationships. We know that stronger marriages in our church mean stronger faith and a great likelihood that their children stay in the church. We welcome all couples – married or not. This is not a group share of everyone’s relationships, but more of a date night venue where you will only discuss the topics with your significant other. This course is easy to follow and will be a lot of fun! Meet other couples who want to work on their marriages and other relationships and get to know new people. The sessions will start with a snack or meal and will include a short video, some group discussion and some time for one on one couple discussion. We plan to run the program during the months of June and July and would love to have you join us! This program is also available in Spanish!
There is a cost of $36 per couple that pays for the program materials, but if paying is a hardship, we have scholarships available. We want you to join us and never want costs to keep you away!
