2019 First annual car and craft show

The first annual September 8th Saint Ann car and craft show was a tremendous success. Over 80 cars were on display with a steady stream of spectators throughout the day. The craft show had 15 vendors who all agreed it was a worthwhile day. Over 20 awards were handed out at the car show. Music was provided by “Music to Your Ears”.  Food and beverages were also available. Many participants shared they will be back next year and we look forward to making it bigger and even still better. We are going to continue to engage our parishioners and community so they know how special the Saint Ann Community is.

Thank you for all who participated, attended and worked to stage a well received event.


Coming Up:

40 Hours continuous exposition, Adore Jesus for one hour

And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age (matthew 28:20) The Presence of Jesus, the Eucharist, will be out on the altar for 40 hours straight and parishioners are asked to join in when you can to be there for its exposition. Around the clock, from Friday 5:00 to Sunday at 3:00 with a Eucharistic Exposition procession led by Father McCarthy. A reception afterward. Sign ups are this weekend after Mass.


A Blessing of your pets

People may notice something odd October 5th. A procession of animals, everything from dogs and cats to hamsters and even horses, is led to church for the Blessing of Pets. This custom is conducted in remembrance of Saint Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures. Francis, whose feast day is October 4th, loved the larks flying about his hilltop town. He and his early brothers, staying in a small hovel, allowed themselves to be displaced by a donkey. “Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures. You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land. You inspired Saint Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters. We ask you to bless this pet. By the power of your love, enable it to live according to your plan. May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation. Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.”
