Our Church

Greetings and Welcome!

Sainte Anne Parish is a faith community in the Roman Catholic tradition.  We see ourselves as a local expression of the Universal Church, the People of God, the Body of Christ.  Through God's grace we seek to be welcoming and loving.  Our life centers on the weekend celebration of the Eucharist.  We meet Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and are then challenged to bring His love to others.  You are most welcome to visit our parish and if  you wish to become a member.  Our Masses for the Lord's Day are on Saturday at 4:00p.m. and on Sunday at 8:30a.m. and 11:00a.m.  Ste. Anne is the closest Catholic church to Salem State University.  We welcome students, faculty, and workers at the University to share in our life of faith.  You are also wlecome and invited to take part in any of our parish activities.  May the Lord bless and keep you and your loved ones.

God loves you and you are invited to journey with the Ste. Anne Parish Family from Ashes to Easter.  Lent is an awesome time when Jesus pours forth His grace to bring us closer to Himself and to each other.  It is a season when we are invited to strengthen, reestablish, or even begin a personal relationship with the Lord.  It is an opportune time to reconnect with Christ and His Church, if you have been away.  Lent has a destination.  We call it the Sacred Triduum – the Great Celebration of the Lord’s Death and Resurrection that takes place on Holy Thursday evening (March 29), Good Friday (March 30), the Easter Vigil (March 31), and Easter Sunday and then continues throughout the Easter season.  Lent prepares us to renew again or perhaps seriously for the first time the vows of Holy Baptism and our commitment to follow Christ.  Please take advantage of the many opportunities your parish offers you this Lent.  Invite others to share in these opportunities with you.  Also go on line and sign up for the Best Lent Ever -  DynamicCatholic.com/BestLent    It’s free!  Father John
