PASTOR’S CORNER


WELCOME LETTER


Welcome to St. Ann’s parish website! I invite you to explore our website as a means of getting to know St. Ann’s and all that we do to serve Christ and one another. While we are well known in Charlotte for having a beautiful church and beautiful liturgy, what’s most beautiful about our parish is our parishioners! We are a family-oriented, thriving parish just south of Uptown Charlotte, filled with people committed to worshiping God through the fullness of our Catholic tradition and serving the poor and needy with charity and compassion. Come join us for Mass and help us as we seek to glorify God, bear witness to His Truth, and show forth His Love.

WEEKLY LETTER


Dear Parishioners,

Greetings from Ireland! Your fellow parishioners and I are having a great time in land of saints and scholars! We will be returning at the end of the week, so I’ll be back at Mass next weekend.

This coming week the Church celebrates two very important feasts: The Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus this Friday (23 June 2017), and the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Saturday (24 June 2017). Both days are wonderful days to go to Mass, and I certainly encourage you to do so. As was mentioned in last Sunday’s bulletin, we will not be having our normal 7 a.m. Latin Mass on Friday, but we will have our normal 8:30 a.m. Mass that day. Moreover, the Cathedral of St. Patrick will be offering a special High Mass (Latin) on Friday night at 7 p.m. to honor our Lord’s Most Sacred Heart. We will have a 9 a.m. Mass this Saturday in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which will be our monthly pro-life Mass. So please join us for that.

Also, keep in mind that next week our parish is hosting Discernment Day for all young men ages 13 and 14 here at St. Ann’s on June 26 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. There’s no charge for this event, and registration will take place upon arrival. This day of fun is designed for young men who want to learn more about priesthood.

Lastly, our Wednesday evening Mass this week will be an English Novus Ordo Mass than our normal Latin low Mass. We will have Holy Hour at 5 p.m. as normal.

Sincerely yours in the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts,

Fr. Reid
