A Note from Deacon John

I want to express my thanks for all your prayers, cards, visits and gifts sent my way during my recent heart attack. I am well on my way to a full recovery. Please know that you are all in my daily prayers. And I hope you will keep me in yours.

St Ann’s Summer Parish Cookout

The St. Ann’s Knights of Columbus is hosting a Summer Parish Cookout – right in our own “backyard”! Come and enjoy hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill under the shade of a giant canopy. Bring a lawn chair or two! Help make this an enjoyable occasion by bringing your favorite summer side dish or dessert. Any and all cookout donations like chips, drinks, paper products, etc. can be dropped off at the parish center to keep until the day of the cookout. The event will be held (rain or shine) on Sunday, July 31st from Noon to 4:00pm, right next to the parish center. There will be sign-up sheets in the church to let us know what you might be able to bring. If you have any questions or would like to assist in any way please contact Paul Spearin by email at, or call 508-567-7155. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thank You!

The Knights of Columbus would like to thank all the parishioners of St Ann’s who donated clothing this past weekend. This event received the most donations since hosting these drives in over four years. Thanks to the generosity of our parish, the clothes will have an immediate and direct impact in the community helping the people who need it the most. Thank you again for making this Clothing Drive a huge success.

Celebrate Matt Cat’s Road to Recovery!



In May Sue Catalano’s son Matt was in a serious car accident. It’s been a long road but he’s recovering very well. So, now it’s time to celebrate Matt’s progress! As he continues his recovery journey, let’s show Matt and his family how much they are loved by getting together to celebrate this young man’s truly beautiful human spirit. His mom, Sue, has done so much for our Parish working with the children’s music program.

To help Matt and his family, there is a fundraiser planned for August 6th at the Portuguese American Civic Club, 175 School Street, Taunton. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the Parish office Monday through Thursday, 9:00am to 2:00pm. Donations are also accepted.

To volunteer, donate raffle items or buy and sell tickets, please call or text Dianne Travers at 508-317-1549.
