Our Church

Greetings and Welcome!

Dear Parishioners and Friends of Ste. Anne Parish,  We have arrived.  Yes, we have now arrived at the most important week of the whole year.  We call it “Holy Week”.  During the first Holy Week the most important event in all human history took place – the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.  If it were not for that first Good Friday and Easter Sunday, the human race would have been doomed to spend eternity separated from God.  How grateful we should be for the love of God in sending His Son and for the love of the Son, Jesus Christ, in embracing suffering and death so that we could be forgiven of our sins and go to heaven.  Are you grateful?  Are you ready to respond to God’s great love?  Are you ready to live this Holy Week with your parish community?  This is the week for you and your family to set aside time for the Lord like never before.  If you have not yet done so, be sure to get to confession.  Then eliminate everything from your usual schedule (emergencies excepted) so that you are free to gather for the Sacred Triduum – the sacred three days – of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil.  In the homily last weekend I challenged myself and each of you to constantly move forward in faith and embrace something new.   For any of you who have never come to the Triduum, let this be the something new for Holy Week 2019.  I am looking forward to seeing a full church for these most holy days.  May you and yours have a blessed Holy Week and a faith filled celebration of the Easter season.             Father John

The Transforming Power of Confession   

Watch it on the Formed Website  - Instructions Below

This is a wonderful video series on a sacrament that is being neglected by many Cahtolics today.  We sometimes forget that every sacrament is an encounter or personal meeting with Jesus Christ.  Consider watching this series during Lent which is a time of spiritual renewal and growth in faith.  Regular confession can change your life for the better.   Forgiven explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God’s love. By looking at God’s revelation of his mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  On the Formed website go to study and then to sacramental preparation.  



Don't miss this captivating presentation by Dr. Mary Healy: "Men and Women are from Eden".  God’s design for life, love, relationships, and sex is written into our very bodies. With incredible clarity, Dr. Mary Healy explains how the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s deeply biblical understanding of Our Lord's original plan for men and women, is astonishingly great news for a culture littered with broken marriages, immorality, heartache, and loneliness. Also listen to the challenging presentation by Fr. Larry Richards entitled - "Confession".
