Liberty Center Dinner
Our Fifth annual dinner for the Liberty Center was a huge success on December 12th. Our success was due to the generosity of many, many people with both monetary donations and those who volunteered their time to do everything from wrap presents, set tables and drive residents to the event at Our Lady of The Pines. As always, we thank The Pines for opening their doors and letting us have our meal in such a lovely setting.
After the food, clothing, toys and gift cards were paid for there was still $1020 left that was donated to Liberty Center.
Everyone who took part in the event was glad to further the part of St. Ann's Mission Statement that says, ' we welcome everyone and turn away no one."
Photos From our Pancake Breakfast
A big thank you to all who attended and or helped at this years pancake breakfast! We have created a slideshow of some of the photos we took at this years event! Enjoy!
Survey in Preparation
for upcoming Synod of Bishops
Recently, a request came to the bishops of the United States asking them to provide input from their respective dioceses regarding issues related to the family life and evangelization.
This information, received from local sources, will be used to help prepare for the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, called by Pope Francis, for October 5-19, 2014; the theme of this meeting will be: Pastoral challenges of the family in the context of evangelization.
To help us efficiently receive your thoughts, we ask that you take a brief online survey:
