WE ARE HELPING
of HUDSON COUNTY
JUNE 17th thru JULY 15th
Saint Ann Catholic Church is partnering
with Family Promise of Hudson County
as a HOST CONGREGATION THIS SUMMER
Family Promise provides emergency places to shelter and help homeless families from Hudson County. The families will be staying in makeshift living quarters in the Hoboken Catholic Academy Gym.
Currently, we are seeking volunteers to assist in the following areas:
- Setting up/Break-down the gym for families
- Welcoming Families
- Preparing Food nightly
- Spending time after dinner mingling with the families and children playing with children
- Overnighter to stay with families in gym
- FLOATERS..people available to help, when and where needed!
Who Is Family Promise:Family Promise of Hudson County is a non-profit that shelters homeless families within Hudson County.
What Do They Do:They provide emergency places of shelter as well as case management and connection to resources. Their goal is to help families find sustainable and successful housing solutions.
Why Do They Do It: Currently, there is no other emergency shelter in Hudson County that houses the whole family. In many locations, fathers are not allowed to stay with the family. Currently, our area has no way to keep them together. A mother raising an adult son with disabilities would be separated because on paper, they are single adults. Family Promise of Hudson County will be able to keep these families together and can work with them to find a sustainable way back on their feet.
We Need You! Volunteers are an integral part of the Family Promise model. Volunteers are needed for shifts of cooking dinner to eating dinner with our guests, activities time and even sleeping over! INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING…? If you are interested in becoming a volunteer either during our Summer Hosting Event please contact the Parish Office: 201-659-1114.

“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 finding 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
fullmembership in our Catholic Church
Our RCIA program addresses the conversion needs for:
- Adults who have never been baptized;
- Adults who have been baptized in another Christian tradition;
- Adults who were baptized Catholic but have had no instruction in the faith or have not received the Sacraments of First Eucharist and/or Confirmation.
RCIA is about growth in faith and growth
in a relationship with God.
Saint Ann Catholic Church
invites you to get answers to
ALL your questions about the Catholic faith…
You do not have to journey alone!!
SESSIONS continue throughout the year!

Saint Ann Catholic Church RCIA Program
