• Mary's Nativity Roman Catholic Church
  • St. Ann Roman Catholic Church

Under the Mantles of our Blessed Lady and her mother, Saint Ann, our Parish celebrates and honors a rich history of collaboration among the faithful priests, religious and dedicated laity.  Nourished by "The Power of the Most High," we strive to be vessels of Gospel values bringing a message of hope and hospitality to all we meet in our ethnically diverse neighborhood. 

Through the awareness of this mission, we seek to grow as disciples nourished by the Eucharist, accepting our call to bring forth Christ in our time, by leading lives dedicated to service and stewardship. 

We seek to become a more vibrant parish by responding to the needs of the community, spreading the message of Jesus through action and word and seeking to renew the faith of the active and non-active Catholics of the Parish. 

Message from the Diocese of Brooklyn - Mass Schedule

IMPORTANT NEWS!

URGENT UPDATE FROM THE DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN

Given the continuing and growing concern about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Bishop DiMarzio has determined that all public masses be cancelled in the Diocese of Brooklyn beginning Monday, March 16th, until further notice. This includes weekday masses as well as Sunday. Funerals and Weddings will be permitted but should be limited to family members only. Parish baptism celebrations should be limited to family only, if they cannot be postponed. Confirmations should be celebrated with the Rite of Confirmation without Mass, if need be, and in consultation with the Bishop scheduled to celebrate the Confirmation.
The faithful of the diocese are reminded that the Bishop has already issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday. The obligation to keep the Lord’s Day holy can be fulfilled by maintaining a prayerful attitude and through personal and family prayer.

The faithful are urged to watch the celebration of the Eucharist on TV, as well.
The celebrations are scheduled as follows:
Saturday at 6 pm: Vigil pre-recorded from Immaculate Conception in Jamaica (English)
Sunday at 11 am: Live from St. James Cathedral in Downtown Brooklyn (English)
Sunday at 1:30 pm: Pre-recorded from Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph in Prospect Heights (Spanish)
NET-TV can be seen in the New York City are on Spectrum (Channel 97), Optimum (Channel 30) and FIOS (Channel 48). Viewers can also tune in online at www.netny.tv.

In light of the continuing crisis, the situation is being monitored carefully and updates will follow. Let us continue to pray, especially through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, for those who are sick, for medical personnel and for all people as we confront this challenge.

Suspensions & Cancellations

  • Bishop DiMarzio has granted all the faithful of the Diocese of Brooklyn a dispensation from the law
    of abstinence for the Fridays of Lent for this year. This is being done to assist people who may have
    difficulties in shopping for food or other reasons which would make this practice difficult at this time.
    Please remind parishioners that the Fridays of Lent (and indeed all year) remain days of penance and
    prayer and that this is needed now more than ever.
  • Out of an abundance of caution especially for the most vulnerable, funerals and weddings will not be
    permitted in church. If absolutely necessary, a graveside service, maintaining the recommendations of the CDC regarding social distancing, could be done, at the discretion of the cemetery administration. A memorial Mass for the deceased should be celebrated later. Weddings should be postponed.
  • Religious Education classes for our children have been suspended until further notice.
  • Our Adult Spirituality Center ‘Heart-talks with Jesus’ sessions and Faith Sharing Sessions are suspended until further notice.
  • The meetings of the Golden Age Club and St. Ann Seniors have been suspended until further notice. 

Message from The Magnificat

Dear MAGNIFICAT Family, During this difficult time, many of the faithful may be unable to attend Mass. To help them sanctify their day and to keep walking in the liturgical rhythm of the Church, we are honored to make our online version of MAGNIFICAT temporarily available to everyone for free. Please help us spread this message and share this email and link: www.magnificat.com/free with as many people as you can. Free temporary access is also available in Spanish: www.magnificat.com/gratis.
It is our hope that everyone will take this opportunity to pray with MAGNIFICAT in union with the Church each Sunday and weekday. Please pray with us for a speedy and safe end to this time of difficulty in our world.
 
Sincerely in Christ,
Romain Lizé President
 
Below is a suggested prayer of spiritual Communion.
 
Jesus, really present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar, since I cannot now receive thee under the sacramental veil, I beseech thee, with a heart full of love and longing, to come spiritually into my soul through the Immaculate Heart of thy most Holy Mother, and to abide with me, thou in me, and I in thee, in time and in eternity. Amen.
