As we enter our seventh month of the coronavirus, I'm sure we are all a little bit sick of the considerable disruption, the sickness, the anxiety, and the separation from our friends and neighbors. I don't have the greatest memory in the world, so if I don't recognize you when I see you again, please don't take offense! Yes, it's been THAT long! Seriously, I very much miss so many of you and I hope you are doing well. This pandemic has certainly changed our lives for the time being, but this too will eventually go away. We live in hope, not in fear.

At the beginning of this whole mess, I asked you to keep St. Anne's in mind, as I was certain that with the absence of so many parishioners at Mass, our income would drop dramatically. I am happily surprised to say it has not!!! Your generosity and support have been remarkable. But then again, why should I be surprised? You have always been so.

As I begin my twelfth year at St. Anne's, I realize how blessed I have been with good people such as yourselves. So many of you have been doing, and continue to do, things for your friends and neighbors to make their lives a little bit easier, and for this, I would like to thank you.

We may be partially shut down, but we haven't gone away. If there is any way we can help you or if you know of anyone in need of help, please be sure to let us know.

Stay well and be hope-filled,

Fr. Foley
