Being Catholic at St. Anne's: Our Families, Our Mission, Our Future

Capital Campaign Goal:         $ 3,500,000       
Pledges to Date:                  $ 3,554,000

Did you know???

 

ALL PLEDGES TO SUPPORT THE CAMPAIGN ARE PAYABLE OVER A FIVE YEAR PERIOD.
 

For example, a $5,000 five-year pledge to our campaign breaks down to $2.74 a day. Within all Being Catholic at St. Anne’s packets, we have included a gift chart that provides a breakdown of various gift requests, all of which are payable over five years. Please know that we are most appreciative of any gift level that you decide upon, even if it is not displayed on the gift chart that was provided. It is our goal to have the support of all St. Anne’s families and friends.

 

Our new meeting and ministry building will be ADA compliant and accessible to all.

 

Our present buildings are very limited in terms of our services to those with special needs. All entrances and exits of the new meeting and ministry building will be handicapped accessible. Both main entrances and exits will have ramps, the building will be accessible by elevator and there will be handicapped parking spaces available for those who wish to park in front of the building. Additionally, all restrooms within the new building will be handicapped accessible.

 

OUR PARISH MINISTIRES NUMBER MORE THAN 60!

 

In any given week, our Parish Office staff works diligently to accommodate the meeting requests from parishioners who are involved with our 60+ parish ministries. Presently, our current meeting spaces can only accommodate 3-4 ministries per night, dependent upon the day of the week. With our new meeting and ministry building, we will be able to accommodate up to 10 ministries at any given time.

 

ALL OF OUR CURRENT LARGE MEETING SPACES ARE LOCATED BELOW GROUND LEVEL

In our new building, the large meeting room on the main level will have a high ceiling to let in lots of natural light.  The room can be divided into two smaller spaces based on the needs of the ministry or activity using the space.  It will also be equipped with current technology.  The room is shown above on the left side with the high peak and numerous windows.

 

 

                             

 


 

Being Catholic at St. Anne’s:

 

Our Families, Our Mission, Our Future

God of love,
We are privileged with the name of St. Anne.
From the beginning of our ninety years,
You have guided us in our trials,
Comforted us in our affliction,
And inspired virtue and holiness in our lives.
How grateful and blessed we are!
 
With anticipation we now look ahead
To strengthen family life,
To advance and proclaim our mission,
To move forward in faith and love.
 
Continue to guide us through
The intercession of St. Anne.
As we undertake this project,
Encourage us to be generous, trusting, and faith-filled
As we have always been and continue to be.
 
We offer this prayer and all our prayers
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
 
 

For the past two years you have been reading about our needs and plans for increased Meeting and Ministry space for the many activities, organizations, and ministries of the parish.  We are speaking of groups of people of all ages with all different needs and interests.
