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.

Dear Parishioners,

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

This coming Saturday, 03 June 2023, seven men from our diocese will be ordained as transitional deacons. These include: Matthew Dimock, Christian Goduti, Matthew Harrison, Kevin Martinez, Jose Palma, Elliott Suttle, and Kevin Tran. The ordination will take place at 10 a.m. at St. Mark Catholic Church in Huntersville. Please pray for them! Matthew Dimock, Christian Goduti, Matthew Harrison, Kevin Martinez, and Jose Palma all lived on our campus when St. Joseph’s College Seminary was housed here at St. Ann’s, and Elliott Suttle was assigned here in the summer of 2020. We are also pleased to welcome Jose Palma to our parish for his summer assignment this year, along with Kolbe Murrey.

Coming up on June 8th we are hosting our annual 40 Hours celebration. This is a time of dedicated prayer before our Eucharistic Lord, and an opportunity for us to renew our love and devotion for Jesus present to us in Holy Communion. While it’s difficult to trace the precise origins of this venerable practice, we do know that St. Philip Neri introduced it into the churches of Rome in the middle of the 16th century – the same time the Protestant revolution was ravaging the Church. So important and beneficial was this devotion that Pope Clement VIII granted a plenary indulgence to all who participate in the 40 Hours devotion.

In the old calendar the Feast of Corpus Christi falls on the Thursday following Holy Trinity Sunday (which is next Sunday), whereas in the new calendar it is celebrated on the Sunday following Holy Trinity Sunday. We will observe Corpus Christi under both calendars, beginning our 40 Hours with a Latin Mass on Thursday, 08 June 2023 at 7 p.m., with our 40 hours of exposition commencing afterwards. Eucharistic Adoration will continue through Friday and end on Saturday, 10 June 2023 at 4 p.m. with Benediction. As has become our parish custom, we will have a Eucharistic Procession on Corpus Christi Sunday after the 10:30 a.m. Mass. All of our 1st communicants are invited to come in their dresses and suits to be a part of procession.

A sign-up genius has been created with all of the available time slots for prayer; you can find it on our parish website. Please sign up for an hour if you can. In addition, we will have various devotions throughout our period of Adoration.

Yours in Jesus and Mary,

Fr. Reid
