Saint Ann's Parish strives to provide for the needs of parishioners and non-parishioners alike through the work of its committees made up of individuals like you. This notice is to provide information about each group, to invite parishioners of all ages to offer their talents to advance the work of these groups, and to encourage those who have particular needs to avail themselves of the services provided by these committees. Please let us hear from you!

You can do it at home and it only takes a few minutes! The retreat runs from Sunday 12/4 to Saturday 12/17. If interested, please contact Matt Brady to receive the retreat booklet.

"Hello everyone! My name is Matt Brady and I am very excited to be joining you as the new Director of Ministries. I have a master's degree in theology from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and an undergraduate degree from Salve Regina University. I spent the past three years at St. Denis in Westwood, where I led a revitalization of their faith formation program and family ministry and helped guide the parish through Covid.

I am looking forward to working with all of you, especially the families, to grow and strengthen our Together in Christ Collaborative."
