The mission of the St. Anne’s Society is to welcome families to our community, assist parish programs, be involved in fundraising activities & provide an opportunity for mothers and families to gather for spiritual, community and social activities.
“Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” ~ 1 Corinthians 16: 13-14
Our organization offers women with young families the opportunity to get together for social, educational and spiritual growth through monthly meetings, planned programs, and many activities for infants through early elementary children. Our membership is open to all women and geared towards mothers of young children. Below are a few descriptions of some of our activities and programs:
Social: We offer social events for both stay-at-home and working members, as well as activities for your children and families. We have monthly Brunch Bunches, play groups for all ages, Mommy and Me field trips, Family parties, Girls Night Outs and Couples Events.
Service/volunteering: Volunteer opportunities include Meals for Moms (providing meals for new moms, families in need, etc.), assisting with Parish Events and donating to charities throughout the community. We offer service opportunities for both our mothers and for our young children, so that they can learn about different service-related virtues at an age-appropriate level.
Spiritual: Spiritual growth is offered through our General Meetings, Bible studies, prayer groups, Adoration and service opportunities. We also offer Feast Day celebrations throughout the year and Children’s Stations of the Cross every Lent.
Monthly Meetings: Meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of each month (August through May) from 9:30am-12:00pm in the Activity Center (free babysitting is provided!). Monthly meetings include time for small group discussions and guest speakers with topics ranging from parenting to children’s health issues to spiritual growth for mothers. Our meetings are designed to inform, entertain, and enrich us as women, wives and mothers.
Our General Meeting Dates for 2017 – 2018 are as follows:
August 23, September 20, October 18, November 15, December 13, January 17, February 21, March 21, April 18, May 16.
We are women supporting each other through this most important and rewarding journey of motherhood with which God has blessed us. Please join us! For membership information, please contact the Membership Chair.
