New Website Coming
June 24, 2016 - Our parish website has been a wonderful resource for so many. However, after seven years, it is in need of renovation and a new approach to being managed. So, a new site is under construction. We have found that our web traffic has been steadily increasing, most especially, in the area of cell phones and tablets. The current website does not respond accordingly. So, this new approach will be, as the tech experts call it, "mobile-responsive." We hope to reveal the new site in the next few weeks. So, don't be surprised when you visit here again and you notice that it look different. Of course it will have all the important content we've been offering, but hopefully in a cleaner, more responsive look.

St. Anne's Pastoral Priorities
Aug. 12, 2012 - This past couple years, St. Anne's Pastoral Council has been working hard on discerning the vision and mission of our parish. The result is a new mission (see left) which was published almost two years ago and now a series of priorities with goals and objectives describing how we will accomplish those priorities.
On July 22nd, Lorin Schrader, the Chair of the Pastoral Council offered a presentation describing the overall vision of the Pastoral Priorities. In order listen to that presentation (mp3 format), you can click here.

Liturgical Ministry Schedule Online
May 4, 2014 - With the complexity of trying to schedule and find substitutes for our liturgical ministries, we have begun using some amazing software which will do the heavy lifting for everyone. It is called, Ministry Scheduler Pro or MSP. It can keep families together if desired for the same Mass, fairly rotate ministers while avoiding conflicts, create simple requests for substitutes, assist ministers with one-stop access to USCCB readings and audio, songs, notes, and more. It really is the answer to the building frustration that is involved in scheduling and managing all the volunteers to are needed for our liturgies.
Go to our Liturgical Ministers page found under the "Ministries" pop-down menu, above to change your preferences for availability or seek out a substitute.
Learn more about how it works by clicking here. If you wish, you can also click this link to check out the online tour. Churches in our diocese we've spoken with who use MSP have given us rave reviews. So, we are excited to get this going and make everything so much easier for all involved.
