St. Ann is a Roman Catholic Community located in Fremont, Ohio at 1021 West State Street. We are a warm and welcoming parish family of approximately 1689 members representing 554 households. As Sandusky County's first Catholic Church, St. Ann originally began as an Irish parish. Today, St. Ann has emerged as a diverse community with many nationalities represented at our Lord's Day Liturgies. We are members of the Bishop Hoffman School System which is a collaborative effort to ensure pre-k through 12th grade Catholic education for this area. At the core of St. Ann is the involvement of its members in the life of the parish community. There are many opportunities for each member to share their gifts and talents with the larger parish community. St. Ann Catholic Community is continually called to reverence its past, live out its present, and thoughtfully plan for its future.
Thank you for visiting with us!
