Family Promise Needs Volunteers

Family Promise serves families with children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, with the mission of “help[ing] homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.” St. Ann’s has participated in Family Promise for over 7 years and needs volunteers. Families come four times a year to stay at St. Ann’s for one week. Volunteers are needed to prepare supper, arrange the bedding, do laundry and be night hosts so that our guests are well supported. Please contact Sr. Elsa at srelsa@stannsparish.us.

There are over 1/2 Million people in the U.S. that do not have a kitchen to make meals or a bed to sleep in at night. Family Promise is an organization dedicated to fighting the homeless epidemic in the U.S. and they are active in Midland! We need volunteers to help with this ministry. Please call the church office: 432-682-6303 to help!

DON’T MISS YOUR CHANCE

You have the opportunity to be an integral part of Saint Ann’s Church’s OUR YOUTH, OUR FUTURE capital campaign. This effort is about raising funds to build the new Youth Activity Center which will serve the young people of our parish as well as the wider community. Please remember to come to Mass this weekend ready to make your pledge to this campaign. To date we have raised nearly $4 million but we need to have every member of the parish join in if we are going to reach our $9 million goal. Please remember the 3 P’s: PRAY for the success of our campaign, PARTICIPATE by spreading the good news about how this will benefit our community; and, PLEDGE by making a 3 year commitment to assisting this project with a sacrificial gift.
