Feast of St. Anne and Joachim

 

We come together seeking the reign of God and to also celebrate this day the Feast of St. Anne & Joachim. Saint Anne, mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary and grandmother of the Lord, you who are compassionate toward those in need, we ask you to invoke your heavenly intercession and assist us with our prayers and petitions this day.

1. To address overcrowding in our Spanish Masses, we have been offering four Masses in Spanish every weekend: Saturday— 7:00 p.m. Sunday—9:00 a.m. —3:00 p.m. -- 6:00p.m.

2.   Our MEGA RAFFLE tickets are now on sale. We only have one month to sell the tickets, so please buy a Raffle, they are $100 each, the drawing will be held on Labor Day weekend Sept. 6th. Every leader of Ministry has tickets to sell to its members, or you may purchase them at the Parish Office or after the Mass at the main exit of the church.

3. We are sad to inform everyone that our Fr. Charlince Vendredy, Associate Pastor, will be reassigned as of August 26th to the Parish of St. Joseph the Worker in Patchogue. We wish Fr. Charlince well in his new assignment.

Bishop Barres has appointed Fr. John Victor, from St. Ignatius Loyola in Hicksville, to Associate Pastor here at St. Anne’s.

4.  We would like to encourage everyone, to please bring your family to church again, bring a friend or a neighbor back to church.

5.   Please be sure to take a Memorial Prayer Card in remembrance of this the Feast Day of St. Anne’s. They are available in three languages, in the baskets on the table in the main entrance of the church. We thank Michael Grant from the Grant Funeral Home for the printing of these cards.

6. Now for the Feast of St. Anne we will have a moment of Adoration, we will pray Litany to St. Anne, and we will receive Blessing with the Blessed Sacrament. Then we will distribute the Holy Communion. Happy Feast of St. Anne to everyone!!!

Please remember to keep your face mask on, practice social distancing, wash your hands often, and use the sanitizer machine coming to our church. Have a great week! God Bless You All, be safe!!!
