"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

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process that used Scripture study, discussion, information on teaching and creative activities to prepare for becoming a Catholic, and receiving Baptism and other sacraments. Kathleen Ruggiero and Roseann Raccuia hold RCIA meetings on Monday evenings at 7:00PM in the rectory basement.
Are you interested in becoming Catholic? Are you interested in receiving the sacraments of Baptism, the Eucharist, and/or Confirmation? RCIA is the process in which you can begin your journey of faith to grow closer to God our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
