Mission Statement

  • 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.

Prayer to the Virgin Mary

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.

Prayer to St. Ann

O glorious Saint Ann, you are filled with compassion for those who invoke you, and with love for those suffer.  Heavily burdened with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet
  and humbly beg of you to take the present intention, which I recommend to you in your special care.

Please recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and place it before the throne of Jesus, so that he may bring it to a happy issue.

Continue to intercede for me until my request is granted.  But above all obtain for me the grace one day to see my God face to face, and with you and Mary and all the saints to praise and bless him for all eternity.  Amen.

Our Father; Hail Mary; Glory be.

Saint Ann, help me now and at the hour of my death!
Good Saint Ann, intercede for me!
