Our 75th Anniversary History Walk is installed and ready for you to enjoy!
The Walk covers 13 different sites on our parish grounds. Start at the Welcome Signs at the 10th Street entrance to the lower level of the Church or at the Harrison Street entrance – or anywhere you see a sign. There are short reflections posted at each site with a QR Code that links via your smartphone to online histories for each site. Once you have scanned in, you can navigate from site to site on your phone. There is a map online as well. A few maps are available in the Narthex if you don’t use a smart phone. You can complete the walk all at one time or visit different sites each week. The total distance if you walk a full circle is about 1100 steps or just under half a mile long. You also can take the history part of the Walk from home! Go to the link on our Saint Ann website from your home computer or tablet and start your “stroll”.
We have made every effort to provide accurate information in our History Walk and create a lasting digital resource for Saint Ann. If you notice any error or discrepancy, please send Mona an email at email@example.com so we can make appropriate corrections. Enjoy the Walk!
Many thanks to our History Subcommittee members who worked hard on the Walk, and special thanks to Mary Kay Lanzillotta for designing the Walk’s signs, to Ted Stump creating the web pages, and to Guillermo Silva, Jackie Thompson and Cristina Pereira for their translations – there would be no History Walk without you!

New Maize Mills purchased by St. Ann Chapel in Matula village needs roof
SUCCESSFUL ST ANN 75th JUBILEE DRIVE FOR THE CICM MALAWI MISSION! As of the end of May, St Ann parishioners have donated over $31,000 to the CICM Malawi Mission! An amazing amount and twice our $15,000 target! These donations were enough to use $17,000 to purchase two much-needed maize mills for the St. Apolonia, and Immaculate Heart of Mary parishes in Northern Malawi.
The mills will be operational in August, once the villagers complete their housing structures. Some of the remaining funds will be used for roofing materials for three currently roofless chapels, and plaques honoring our St. Ann’s support will be installed. The successful St. Ann Outreach has really shown St. Ann’s ‘missionary spirit’ to assist oversees missions in need of our support. Our specific goal for this Mission Outreach has been reached.
The Mission Outreach Committee for St Ann’s 75th year Jubilee celebration thanks you for your enthusiasm and exceptional support! This international outreach is a great way to mark our 75th Jubilee and a testament to our Christian spirit and generosity. Please check the display in the narthex for more information.
