Women Needed to Pray for Our Priests

The Seven Sisters Apostolate is a group pf Women at St. Ann’s who pray a Holy Hour one day of a week for a specific priest. It is their mission to pray for his deeper conformity to Christ. This is a great help to the priest and the Church. Please consider mission.

New Adoration Time beginning April 4th

Join us in the Chapel at St. Ann’s for an hour of Adoration before Christ, every Wednesday evening 6:15pm-7:15pm. The Eucharist will be exposed immediately after the 5:45pm Mass. During this hour, many people are sitting in cars waiting for children who are in EDGE or PSR. Why not come in and sit with  Christ?

My Lord Jesus Christ,
I believe that You are really here in this Sacrament.
Night and day You remain here compassionate and loving.
You call, You wait for,
You welcome everyone who comes to visit You.
I thank You, Jesus my Divine Redeemer
for coming upon the earth for our sake
and for instituting the Adorable Sacrament of the Holy
in order to remain with us until the end of the world.
I thank You for hiding beneath the Eucharistic species
Your infinite majesty and beauty,
which Your Angels delight to behold,
so that I might have courage to approach the throne of
Your mercy.
I thank You dear Jesus,
for having become the priceless Victim,
to merit for me the fullness of heavenly favors.
Awaken in me such confidence in You
that their fullness may descend ever more fruitfully upon
my soul.
I thank You for offering Yourself
in thanksgiving to God for all His benefits,
spiritual and temporal
which He has bestowed on me.
Grant me grace and perseverance in your faithful service.

Do you know about Sister’s Charity? Sister Elsa and St. Anns have created this charity which partners with St. Vincent de Paul to help families in need.
From time to time Sister Elsa will ask for your help to support these families and help them get back on their feet.

Right now Sister Elsa is asking parishioners to assist with helping two single Dads get their cars fixed. They both have Jobs but need their cars to get to work.

Dad A needs $300 for a new transmission- he says he can put it in himself
Dad B had his car in the shop and needs $380 for some computer/ wiring fix. The car is in the shop until it is paid.

*Please send donations toward this need to St. Ann’s Church office – Checks made out to St. Ann’s with a note for – Sister’s Charity.
