Invigorate Faith | Build Community | Go Make Disciples

Stewardship Through Serving

Following the example Christ set for us, we strive to offer ourselves in service to others. Every day, we have the choice to serve or to sit back; to get involved or be self-involved. This year, is God calling you to do more for others through service? There are dozens of opportunities throughout the year to serve others, educate our children, reach out to the needy, and much more. Your participation is welcome and needed for our community to thrive. Let’s work together to build a welcoming community as we serve God and one another!

Get Involved at St. Anne Catholic Church

There are many wonderful ministries here at St. Anne.  Please prayerfully consider how you can use your time and talents to get involved in this amazing community!

 

Hospitality Ministries

The Gathering

Parishioners gather in St. Anne Hall after all weekend Masses to enjoy refreshments and fellowship. To ensure a smooth and successful gathering, volunteers are needed to setup, maintain, and clean up afterward. This ministry provides a great and simple way to get to know other parishioners.

Contact Nicole Hieger for more info: [email protected]

Greeter

The Greeters create a pleasant environment by welcoming people to Mass by opening the doors, saying hello, staffing the information tables in the gathering space and providing direction to visitors. These hospitality ministers, along with the ushers, help create a culture of hospitality before, during, and after Mass.

Then this is the ministry for you! Our office hospitality volunteers assist in the parish office answering phones, greeting visitors, accepting deliveries, and doing light office and clerical work. You will often be the first face a visitor sees upon arriving on our campus, so smiling faces and compassionate hearts are a must! Office receptionists volunteer for 3 hour shifts one day a week.  The morning shift is from 9-12 and the afternoon shift is from 1-4.

Prayer Ministries

Eucharistic Adoration

As Catholics, we believe in the real presence of Jesus’ body, blood, soul and divinity in the Eucharist. Worship of the Lord's Eucharistic presence draws us closer to himself and gives us a greater desire for holy communion with him. Exposition of the Eucharistic Host, for adoration by all the faithful, takes place in our chapel Monday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. This ministry is made possible by individuals making a weekly commitment of one hour on the same weekday each week to ensure that the Eucharist is never left alone.

Contact Gail Hobbs for more info: [email protected]

Prayer Line

These dedicated volunteers pray for intentions received by the Parish Office from our parishioners.

Formation Ministries

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Cathecists

Here at St. Anne, our three through six-year-olds have the unique opportunity to take part in an internationally renowned formation experience known as Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. It takes place in a sacred space called an “Atrium." This space allows these young children to encounter our Good Shepherd, Jesus, in a deeper way than in a classroom setting.

This offering is only made possible by the dedicated catechists who go through intensive training each summer to become a "guide" in the Atrium. If you feel called to lead young souls toward the loving arms of Christ, please prayerfully consider joining this vital ministry!

Contact Megan Polly for more info: [email protected]

Middle School and High School Ministry

Our middle school and high school youth ministry is a place for teens to come each week to hear the Gospel message proclaimed with relevance and boldness, encounter Jesus, and build authentic Christian community. Middle school and high school youth ministry is for all teens hoping to make new friends and grow in their relationship with Jesus.  

Contact Amy Weaver for more info: [email protected]

Family Faith Formation

For many decades now the Church has consistently taught that parents are the first evangelizers and teachers of their children in their faith. You, parents, already know that you are the day in, day out teachers of your children and all things. This should be no different when it comes to knowing, loving, and serving Jesus Christ! The Church and this parish want to help you reclaim and celebrate the dignity and duty that comes with Holy Matrimony by occupying that irreplaceable role of forming your children in the faith. Family Faith Formation provides an opportunity for you and your children to learn and grow together as you experience the truth and beauty of our Catholic faith. To support you in this journey our Family Program features, in short, the following four dimensions: 1) Monthly parent sessions, 2) Parents teaching at home, 3) Monthly family events for parents and children, and 4) Participation in Holy Mass. It is time that our parish efforts reflect this rather than eclipsing the irreplaceable role that you rightfully have for the faith formation for your children.

Contact Allie Fenton for more info: [email protected]

Family Life Ministry

The church and its traditions are a powerful reflection of family life, the domestic church. In this day and age, raising a family can be very challenging. The Family Life Ministry is a haven for our parish families. Formation and social opportunities will be offered throughout the year including events for the whole family and for parents. We look forward to getting to know you and your family!
