Welcome to St. Anne's Parish

We are a Catholic Christian community rich in a tradition of giving and caring for its Church and its people.

Through the course of each year, hundreds of parishioners volunteer their time and talents for the many special events and celebrations within our Parish.

In addition, many of our parishioners are active on an ongoing basis in the ministries we see and experience every week as well as in those ministries that are not so outwardly visible.

2 Corinthians 9:6 "Whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully."

From the Pastor's Desk

The song "I'll Be Home for Christmas" probably describes where most of us will be for the holiday this year, and the terrible thing about it is that many of our family members will not. I usually have 19 people for Thanksgiving. This year I had three. And it looks the same will be the case for Christmas and New Year's.

So what to do? We can become angry or depressed and realize what is missing from our celebration, or we can choose to understand how blessed we really are. So many in our society have no one to miss them, as they are alone, or have little food to share because they have no income. The situation for many will not change, as ours hopefully will (perhaps in just a few months). Life is not always fair and sometimes deals us a very difficult hand to play.

At Christmas, we celebrate the coming of the Christ, whose birth in that cold stable and then spending the following few years in a new country with strangers was anything but easy. I am sure that is not how Joseph and Mary pictured their first years together as a family.

Perhaps this year is a good time to dwell on how much grace God has placed in our lives - so many people care for us and love us, even if from a distance. We may mourn the loss of a loved one, as so many have died, but our love lives on in memories.

No, life is indeed not fair, but we never expected it to be. But God's love is constant. He redeemed us, He loves us and promises to always be with us - this is the true gift of Christmas.

May God bless you all this Christmas, and may the New Year bring a true promise of good health and happiness.

O child, Creator of all! How humbly you lie in the manger. You who rule powerfully in heaven! There the heaven of heavens cannot contain you; here, however, you are held in the narrowest manger. There, in the beginning of the world, you decorated the earth with green grasses that produced seed, with fruit-bearing trees that produced fruit, you ornamented the heavens with the sun, the moon, and the stars, the sky with winged birds, the waters with fish, you filled the land with reptiles, draft animals, and beasts; here, however, in the end of the world, you are wrapped in swaddling clothes! O majesty! O lowness! O sublimity! O humility! O immense, eternal, and Ancient of Days! O small, temporal infant whose life is not yet one day upon the earth!
