Dear parishioners of St. Ann’s parish,

 

Several questions have arisen concerning church donations. The diocese has instructed us that people can either mail their cheques/contributions to the parish or keep their envelopes until the churches reopen. Donations for special collections (Good Friday/Holy Land and Development and Peace (Share Lent) will also be accepted. We are also arranging for donations to be made through e-transfer.  This may take a few days but we will post a notice when this is available.  If there are any questions regarding this, please email the church office and we will get back to you promptly.

 

People can also donate here by specifying the parish: http://www.saintcd.com/donate-now/. Donations should not be left in the mailbox at the church because it is not secure.

 

Thank you for your great generosity and may Our Lord and Our Lady keep you,

 

Fr. Chad Grennan, pastor

Spiritual Communion

 

My Jesus

I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
