St. Ann 38th Annual Bazaar committee is welcoming volunteers, men and women of all ages.  It is an exciting group of folks who work together to raise funds for the Parish.  The first open-to-all general meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 14th at 10AM in the Masterson Room.  Look forward to seeing you there!

There will be a Seder Supper at St. Ann on Thursday, March 15th at 6:30PM in Delaney Hall.  A Seder Supper is a Jewish ritual celebration of the deliverance of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt.  It was at such a celebration that Jesus instituted the Eucharist.  This is why the Seder has long been regarded with affection by Catholics.
This celebration is open to all members of our parish.  However since there is room for only 60 people, signing up quickly is encouraged.  Families with children are strongly encouraged to attend. (The dinner itself is roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and corn…quite child-friendly.)
To sign up either   send an email, with Seder Supper in the subject line, to dre@stannsbethany.org  Include your name and the names of others who will be with you.
or   call 302-539-5443 and either leave a message or tell the person answering the phone, your name, phone number and the names of those attending with you.
Additionally, if you are attending, please bring dessert to share for three–muffins, cupcakes, small pie or cake, cookies.
Lastly, if you are interested in assisting with either cooking, set-up or clean-up, please contact Theresa Orhelein at teacher19970@yahoo.com
