I first want to express my sincere thanks to Mr. Don Doyle.  On July 31st, Don retired after over 25 years of service to St. Ann Parish.  I know that for me, he was a very valuable and knowledgeable person to have on the staff.  He always had the best interest of the Parish at heart.  He always brought a smile to work and our parish office was a better place because he was there.  I wish Don good luck, good health and bon voyage.  We all will miss his presence, his knowledge, his advice and his smile.  Thank you, Don, so very much for all you did for St. Ann and for me personally.  May God bless both you and Barbara.
With Don’s retirement, we welcome Mrs. Christie Thornett to our parish staff.  Christie will serve in the position of Assistant Business Manager.  She brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge from her career,  from her service on the Parish Finance Council and she also brings a great personality.  I am delighted that Christie has accepted this position and I am sure that she will be a valuable member of the office team.  Welcome aboard!

Our parish-renewing Journey program is on the way!
So far we’ve had people speaking at our weekend Masses two times and we held a preliminary registration in early May.
Is Journey for you?
Consider the following questions: do you sometimes feel like you’ve heard about Jesus but never really got to know Him personally? Or does it seem like you once had a meaningful relationship with Christ but now that all seems to be part of the past?
Journey is an opportunity to spend six weeks re-entering into and renewing your relationship with Christ through scripture, brief scripture-based video clips, and reflection and sharing in a small group. It will begin the week of October 7 and end the week of November 17 with the groups meeting once a week. Registration is still open and i

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, to inquire about Church teachings and to share faith experiences.  Your journey of faith through RCIA will prepare you to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist.  For information, contact JoAnna Keller at 302-539-5443 or email at  jmelodykeller@hotmail.com
Separate sessions are offered for children over the age of 6 years.
