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.

Benedict XVI - A Love Affair with the Truth! 

Watch Benedict XVI - A Love Affair with the Truth.  During his years as our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI often did not have good press.  The impression that many people had of him was far from the truth.  In this Video you will see much that was not reported by the mainstream media and will gain perhaps a different impression of this wonderful and holy man.  You will find this video on the Formed Website listed as Rome Reports under Documentaries.  Information on Formed is below. 



Don't miss this captivating presentation by Dr. Scott Hahn entitled: "Understanding the Lord's Prayer?"  It will give you a new and renewed appreciation of the beauty and meaning of this prayer we pray so often.  Be sure to listen on Formed.  Getting on the website is explaned below.  Also listen to the challenging presentation by Fr. Larry Richards entitled - "Confession".
