NEWS AND EVENTS AT ST. ANN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Each and every one of us, from young to old, can evangelize, can do our “supreme duty” in about two to three minutes a day using social media. Our parish is posting inspirational and spiritual material on our Facebook Page, on our webpage and through email blasts to our parishioners every single day! You can help us in this New Evangelization, in the effort to build up the Church and the Kingdom of God right here at St. Ann’s, by taking the time to do three simple things on your Facebook Page.
First, you can follow St. Ann Parish on Facebook. It’s easy to do and will ensure that you receive all of our posts in your newsfeed. You can invite all the people you know in the area who are on Facebook, especially if they are members of our parish, to follow our Facebook page so that they will also receive our inspirational posts. And, finally, you can share our posts with your friends on Facebook.
The simple act of following us, inviting your friends and contacts to follow us and sharing our posts with people in the greater Channahon area will help us bring the Good News to so many people through short (well, except for my posts) inspirational posts.

Has this ever happened to you?
Our dedicated team of ushers came forward to begin the offertory collection process. You lean over and ask your family member if they brought the offertory envelope. He replies that he left it on the table for you to put in your pocket. No envelope to give this week! In the rush of coming at least 20 minutes before church, we all forget the envelope from time to time. Check out our easy way to give weekly. Click here to become an online giver. Thank you for putting St. Ann at the top of your family giving list.
God told the Israelites people, “No one shall appear before the Lord empty-handed, but each of you with as much as he can give, in proportion to the blessings which the Lord, your God has bestowed on you.” ~ Deuteronomy 16:16-17
