Outreach & Social Ministry

"Our Parish Outreach is a spiritual umbrella for several spiritual programs."

Under the guidance of the parish clergy, the Adult Faith Formation is responsible for creating and sustaining events and programs that nurture the development of mature faith in adult Catholics. At  St. Ann's Parish, we provide many opportunities for spiritual growth and education, which should lead to greater appreciation of the richness of our Catholic tradition, and to deeper commitment to putting our energies to work in spreading the Good News of Jesus.

The American bishops have stated that the education and Christian formation of adults must be a priority for the church.

For further information about any of these groups or programs as well as scheduled meeting times, please call the rectory office at 718-351-0270.

Eucharistic Ministry to Homebound

If you know of anyone unable to attend Mass, please call the rectory so a Euchartistic Minister can visit and take the Eucharist to them.  A First Friday visit by a Priest can be scheduled.  A Priest is always on call for emergency visits. 

Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers

Service to others or to the church, which is what ministry means, is part of what we are called to do as Catholics. Special ways of serving are open to all people in the parish. Extraordinary ministers of Communion, Lectors/Readers
are open to all lay people.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawl Ministry meets every Friday at 11:00am in St. Joachim Hall.  This ministry consists of a group of parishioners who knit or crochet. The prayer shawls are given to parish members who are in need of special comfort due to illness, bereavement or some other personal struggle.  All are welcome.  Please join us.

Donations of yarn are greatly appreciated!
