The Church of Saint Ann -
Religious Education Program
The Saint Ann’s Religious Education Program provides the structure
for children to learn about their Catholic Faith with other children of this
Parish community. With parents as the first catechists, our Religious
Education program partners with families to assist in the faith
formation process, encouraging children to explore their Catholic Identity.


Knowing the Eucharist is the central part of our Catholic Faith and the
life of the church, we stress the importance of attendance at Sunday Mass
and Holy Day Mass celebrations.The frequent reception of Holy Communion
and the regular reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation are also
encouraged in addition to regular attendance at CCD.


Mission Statement

The goal of the Religious Education Program at St. Ann’s Parish is to bring, through catechesis and prayer, the message of Jesus Christ and His Church to all members of the community.  It is its aim to help students acquire and develop their own Catholic, Christian faith, so that our parish community and its members may truly witness to the Good News of Our Lord, Jesus.

All of our efforts are meant to support parents as the primary religious educators of their children.  We provide formal religious education that builds upon the everyday lived experience of the faith that is shared in your homes and at Sunday Mass.

We are a welcoming Parish, with our doors open to all God’s children.
