Supporting Saint Anne Parish

Weekly Offertory:   Contributions for the regular support of Saint Anne Parish.

Grand Annual Collection:  The Grand Annual collection is a gift over and above weekly and monthly offerings.  Gifts to this fund help the parish meet its annual budgetary needs, which are usually not met through the weekly and monthly offertory collection.  Historically, this collection is taken during the month of October.

Building Fund:  Donations to the building fund help to provide for the upkeep and improvements of Saint Anne’s buildings and grounds.

Memorial Donations:  A gift to St. Anne Parish can be made in honor of a friend or loved one.  Please indicate the name and address of the person you would like to honor (if deceased, the name and address of their closest living relative).  An acknowledgment will be sent from the parish.

Angel’s Messages:  At St. Anne’s approximately 22 masses a month are celebrated, going through about 3,500 hosts, a box of wine, a carton of candles & several vigil candles.  While these items are not permanent, they are essential and cost about $250 per month. A donation of $50 would help offset these costs.  A two-line message will run in the bulletin for two weekends to acknowledge the gift.  (Your message might be about the joy and love you feel at a parent’s birthday, to rejoice for a child’s graduation or to honor someone’s anniversary.)

Winter Wear Fund:  For many years, this fund was used to provide suitable winter footwear for needy families.  In addition to footwear, this has been expanded to include other winter necessities such as jackets, hats, mittens, and socks.

Christmas Flowers:  Donations are used to purchase flowers for the altar at Christmas.  The suggested donation is $10 per name/ maximum $25 per donor.  Surplus funds will ensure that the church has suitable floral decorations throughout the year.

Easter Flowers:  Donations are used to purchase the Easter lilies for the altar.  The suggested donation is $10 per name/ maximum $25 per donor.  Surplus funds will ensure that the church has suitable floral decorations throughout the year.

St. Vincent de Paul:  Gifts will be forwarded to the St. Anne Conference of St. Vincent de Paul.    St. Vincent de Paul assists those facing financial difficulty.  In these days of uncertainty, many people have experienced job loss or a cutback in hours or pay, leaving them in insecure or dire financial circumstances.

Hospitality Sunday:  A donation of $175 covers most of the cost of the coffee, juice and donuts for one month.  If an individual or group would like to sponsor a specific month (usually September through June), please contact the parish office at 978-486-4100.
