As you are aware, we are in the process of preparing a new parish directory.  I would like to invite all our parishioners to participate.  A directory is a snapshot of time in our parish history.  It has been five years since our last directory publication.  Parishioners have moved away.  Some have died and new parishioners have joined our ranks.  The directory is a testament to that reality.
I am sure many of you, like me, have used the directory as a resource, usually to put a name and a face together.  The more of us who participate, the more complete it will be and the more useful.  So plan on being a part of our Parish history by being in our parish directory.  Sign up and add your smiling face to the new directory.
Also, we are celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Diocese of Wilmington.  One way we are celebrating this important milestone is with the publication of Rejoicing in the Lord.  This is an illustrated history of the diocese and of each parish and mission.  If you are interested in the history of Catholicism on Delmarva, this is an invaluable tool to learn about this history.  If you are interested in a parish or parishes, this is the book for you!  I also have to say that we have six great pages representing our parish.  The book is on sale for $35 and is available at church, the gift shop and the parish office.
Also, we have two other books available.  One is an excellent edition of the New Testament and the other is a history of the diocese in words and drawings.  Both are on sale for $12.  All of these books are limited in number so buy them now while they last.  By the way, they do make great gifts!

Have a great Bethany Beach Week!

The Parish Directory is Being Updated!!

The New St. Ann Parish Directory is being assembled, listing parishioners with photographs of those who wish to include their individual, family or group photo.  Free photography and a complementary 8X10 print for all participants.  Sign up to schedule photos as soon as possible at Weekend Mass or online at https://booknow-lifetouch.appointment-plus.com/yxs3sccm/  Make sure St. Ann has your up-to-date contact information.  Questions?  Email coordinator Ed Appel at EdAppelSr@gmail.com.

Have you or do you know someone who has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic or was not baptized as a child?  St. Ann Parish offers the opportunity to come together in small group to learn more about the Catholic faith.  Adults have the opportunity to inquire about Church teachings and experience how Catholic Christians live their faith.  The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults will prepare those who wish to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist.  If you’d like to learn more, click below:
