• 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.

The Rectory office has been notified that a parishioner was recently hospitalized with Covid-19. According to our records, the last Mass this parishioner attended was the 9:00 am Mass in Mary’s Nativity Church on Monday, October 12, 2020.

ADDITIONAL MASS ADDED TO ST. ANN SCHEDULE

Because of social distancing and a increased attendance at Masses celebrated in St. Ann Church, we have added a Mass on Sunday morning at 7:00 am.  This change will take place beginning Sunday, October 11 and is in addition to our regular schedule. 

Please remember that social distancing MUST be maintained while attending any Masses in both worship sites.  IF maximum capacity is reached at a Mass, it will be necessary to close the doors to adhere to government and diocesan guidelines.  This is for everyone's health and safety.

You are welcome to attend any Mass within our parish.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this pandemic.  We are in this together.

Be well. Be safe. God Bless!

Prayer to the Virgin Mary for Protection

O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope.  We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith.
O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee.  Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died.  Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.
Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection.  Under your protection we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Amen.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis

Peace Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.
