Find A Mass Near You

MassTimes.org When you plan to head out for a vacation, don't forget Mass. In order to help you find the most local Catholic Church and subsequent Mass times, check out this web site: MassTimes.org. Once there, all you need to do is first select the state on the map or type in the name of the city. Then the map will hone into the local parishes. From there, select a parish and you can then get the Mass times as well as directions if the parish supplied them. You can also begin by selecting the diocese and then narrowing down your location from there.

Become An Automatic Giver

With all the stresses of life, St. Anne's has an option to help you donate in am easy, no-hassle, safe, and effective way. This process is technically called ACH (Automatic Clearing House) whereby a parishioner authorizes the Church to make regularly scheduled withdraws from his/her bank account. Simply, download the ACH Authorization form, fill it out, return it to the office with a voided check, and that's it. I you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Alan Crews, our business manager.

Plant in HandIn addition to the safety factor of ACH, it is also quite "green." An enormous amount of natural resources are consumed in the production, transportation, processing and disposal of paper checks. That's why paying bills electronically always ranks high on any list of actions an individual can take to improve the environment. Since the year 2000, the powerful trend toward electronic payments has already produced more than a 50 percent decline in check use. As you consider the payment method you use to make your regular offering, we hope that you will think about the unique connection between financial and environmental stewardship.

Saying Goodbye

June 24, 2016 - In the coming week, St. Anne's will see the departure of three important ministers in the parish: Fr. Nguyen (He's being transferred to Ascension Parish in Portland), Natalie Scott (She's starting up a new company called the Ezer Project), and Esperanza Robles (She is retiring after 16 years of faithful service). We will be hosting a farewell reception after the 8 AM Mass this Sunday. Come and share your farewell wishes and blessings to these wonderful people.

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.

Liturgical Ministry Schedule Online

Ministry Scheduler ProMay 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.
