Faith Formation News

Rescheduling First Communion and Confirmation Masses
We, like you, are anxiously awaiting the celebration of First Communions and Confirmations in our parish. Currently, we are looking to the guidance of the Diocese of Fall River and our state for a time when our capacity can increase. Each week we have seen our Mass attendance increase, and as parishioners and their families return, we hope to plan a date so that our students can receive these Sacraments by early fall.

Faith Formation Registration
Registration for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year has begun. We have been working with a new program that will allow our in-person meetings to transfer to virtual classes if needed throughout the year. Please look on our Faith Formation page for more information on our registration process. Please note that early registration fees are again available through June 30, 2020.

Teachers Needed
Please contact Jenn Murphy if you are available to teach a class this year, by calling the Faith Formation Office at (508)824-9021 or emailing religioused@stannsraynham.org.

Catholic Appeal 2020

As we approach the half-way mark of the Appeal we are encouraged by our returns! As of last Thursday, June 25th, we have received $43,390.00. This is another example of the generosity of our parishioners here at St. Ann’s Church. We want to thank you for your response. Donations may be mailed to Catholic Appeal, 450 Highland Ave, Fall River, MA 02720.

For those who did not receive an envelope in the mail, they are available at the church entrances. Please check out the website: https://www.catholicfoundationsema.org/catholic-appeal-2020/ for more information. If you choose to give online please be sure to credit St. Ann’s Parish. If you are unable to give this year please pray for the success of the Appeal and for those who are in need.

Temporary Mass Schedule

Our new summer Mass schedule has begun. We will have a 4:00pm Mass on Saturdays and 8:00am and 10:00am on Sundays. The 5:00pm Mass has been suspended due to the low registration and attendance.

St. Ann’s Online Giving

Many have been so thoughtful and concerned during these days about how we can continue to support our Parish. Many thanks to all who have mailed in or dropped off their contributions. We also have a new method – online giving. To sign up for that simply go to https://stannsraynham.weshareonline.org or click the “We Share” button above. There you will be able to set up weekly, monthly or one-time contribution. It is very simple to use and very secure.
