Public Masses Have Resumed at St. Anne's Church

In accordance with the safety regulations published by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for public worship and with the guidelines approved by Bishop McManus for the Diocese of Worcester, St. Anne's Church has resumed daily and Sunday Masses for the public.

For the foreseeable future, the 10:30 Sunday morning Mass will be held at 11:00 am to allow for disinfection of the pews between Masses.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be held in the Fr. Smith Center at 3:00pm on Saturdays. We ask that you remain in the foyer area outside the hall, maintaining six feet of distance between yourself and others and again, please wear a mask.

The joy we feel during the first phase of resumption of our ecclesial life must be balanced by a concern for the common good as we continue do to everything possible to further stem the spread of COVID-19. Because the virus continues to present a specific danger to older people and those with certain health conditions, the obligation to take part in the Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation continues to be lifted.

Livestreaming of the 9:00 Sunday morning Mass will continue to be offered through our Facebook page for those who are unable to join us in the church. Daily Masses will no longer be streamed.

Parishioners are encouraged to mail in their envelopes or sign up for online giving to avoid the risk of transmitting the coronavirus through the collection. Donation baskets will also be placed at each of the entrances. Please review St. Anne's COVID-19 web page for additional details on the safety precautions required during public celebrations of Holy Mass.

Please also continue to pray for an end to the coronavirus pandemic and recite Pope Francis' prayers after praying the Rosary.

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."

We find ourselves in darkness, yet we live in the light; we know sorrow, yet we have joy; we are burdened, yet we have wings to meet our God, the eternal light and life of all creation. This is our joy now, and in this joy we shall remain. We must fight; we must hold the standard high; we must let the light shine forth. We must never be discouraged.
