Welcome to Ste. Anne's!

Sainte Anne Parish - Salem, MA 01970


Sainte Anne Parish

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 and commissioned to share our faith and to bring His love to others.  You are most welcome to join with us for prayer, worship, and parish activites.  May the peace of the Lord be with you always. 

Ash Wednesday - Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 26th.  Masses with distribution of blessed ashes will take place at 9 am and 7 pm.  A prayer service with ashes will be held at 3 pm.

Lenten Retreat

Our Lenten parish retreat program will take place at Ste. Anne's from 7-8 pm  on the following three Sundays:  Retreat Day One - Sunday, March 1st; Retreat Day Two - Sunday, March 8th; Retreat Day Three - Sunday, March 15th.  Please save the dates and plan to join us. 

Please pray for the following students who have seriously prepared themselves with the help of Fr. Maurice, teachers, and parents for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation, which will take place on Saturday, March 7th at the 4pm Mass.  Bishop Mark O'Connell will be presiding.   Brianna Berube, Joshua Berube, Anna Cantone, Cassandra Caulfield, Sean Caulfied, Patrick Chasse, Jr., Benjamin Louf, Francesca Lupis, Renee Matarazzo, Cassadi O'Leary, Alex Reid, Edward Rowley, Colin Scarpola, Ryker Taguiam, Natalie Wessell.

  Eucharistic Adoration and Rosary

"Come to Me all you who Labor and are over- burdened, and you will find rest." (Matthew 11:28). Eucharistic Adoration takes place every Thursday in the chapel.  The Blessed Sacrament will be displayed after the 9:00 am Mass through 6:30 pm, when the Rosary will be prayed.  Please consider spending an hour with the Lord in quiet, prayerful time.  We invite a minimum of two (2) people commit per hour to ensure that someone is always present with the Lord (Could you not watch with me one hour? Matthew 26:40)  Sign-up sheets will be available each week in the Chapel, Monday through Friday, and in the Main Church on Saturday and Sunday.  This is an opportunity to take time from our busy lives and spend quality time with the Lord.

Bible Lessons

Please join us as we celebrate the year of the Bible at Ste. Anne's Parish.  Beginning January 31st and continuing on the last Friday of each month, we will have Bible lessons at the Pastoral Center in a series entitled "From Genesis to Revelation," moderated by Father Maurice and others from Boston College.  This will be an opportunity to deepen your knowledge of the Bible with the aid of twelve sessions.  You will receive a certificate of participation at the end of the lessons.  Come prepared to discover the spiritual treasures of the Bible and enjoy some pizza and fellowship too!  The meetings will take place from 6-7:30 pm on the last Friday of each month at the Pastoral Center, 11 Cleveland Street.  Visit the Teachings page to hear the first lesson on the Book of Genesis!
