“Life is a journey that should
not be walked alone...
Are you interested in exploring Catholicism for yourself or do you know someone who might
be interested in inding out more about our faith?
Are you baptized in another Christian church
or thinking about joining the Catholic Church?
Are you Catholic but never received
Confirmation or First Communion?
If so, then RCIA may be for you!
What is the RCIA?
How does someone become Catholic?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
is the process by which people
can question, search, and inquire
into the Catholic faith.
It is a journey that leads many to seek
full membership in our Church
and for others
this journey may not lead
to full membership.
ALL ARE WELCOME!!
Come and see,
to ask questions,
and to look more deeply into
our Catholic faith,
conveniently at our parish office.
Saint Ann Catholic Church Invites You
to get answers to ALL your questions
about the Catholic faith...
You do not have to journey alone!!

The SAINT NICHOLAS’ POUCH
A Saint Ann Tradition
Collecting New Gift Items
for Children andFamilies in Need
thru Sunday December 10th
Would you like to share the joy and blessings of Christmas with children in need and their families in our local and surrounding communities? The Saint Nicholas’ Pouch tradition, a “giving tree”, began many years ago at Saint Ann’s and continues through today due to our Parishioners generosity over the years.
Included in this pouch are three pennies in remembrance of the three girls Saint Nicholas saved and a colored scroll listing a gift for a child that is to be purchased.
The children and families in need are part of one of the following organizations:
In Jesus’ Name Charities(yellow)
Good Counsel Homes(white)
Sisters of Life(blue)
York Street Project(Lavender)
Please take as many as you can
afford to return...the children and families are counting on us!!
We will be receiving gifts through
Sunday December 10th.
The organizations are picking up the donations on Monday December 11th.
We cannot accept any gifts
AFTER December 10th.
How to Prepare the Gifts: Please wrap your gifts, taping the colored scroll on the TOP of the package so they can be sorted per organization. Please bring your wrapped gift to church and place in front of the Saint Nicholas statue in the back of the church. You can also bring your gifts to the Parish Office Monday thru Saturday, 9am thru 5pm.
Thank you for your continued generosity during this Holy Advent Season!
In the words of our Lord and
‘It is more blessed to give
than to receive.’

such as the birth of a child,
the passing of a loved one
or recovery from surgery, etc.
So if you enjoy cooking and
want to help others in the parish
this is the ministry for you!
