Solemn Novena 2019

Posted by admin - June 14th, 2019

June 2019,

Dear Friends of Saint Ann,

Over the past year, I have heard from a great many of you who have asked Saint Ann’s intercession for a wide variety of
intentions.  In so many letters and conversations, I have heard over and over again how Saint Ann has responded wonderfully
to so many needs.  Our devotion and our faith are greatly deepened by this testimony.

As we approach the celebration of our Solemn Novena to Saint Ann from Wednesday, July 17th through her feast day, Friday,
July 26th, our confidence in Saint Ann urges us to prayerfully reflect upon our continuing needs and the needs of our families,
friends, church and our world.  We remember that our most powerful help in all of these is to ask St. Ann for her ongoing
intercession.

I invite you to join together with us at Saint Ann’s in seeking God’s guidance and blessings through the intercession of Saint Ann.
Our first step is to gather your intentions together, write them out on your intention slip and return it so I may place them at
Saint Ann’s Shrine by the beginning of our Solemn Novena.

Secondly, we pray together every day, asking Saint Ann to be attentive.  I sincerely hope you will be able to join us here
at the Basilica for all or part of our novena.  We will be lead in prayer and preaching by Fr. Rick Frechette, C.P., medical
doctor and missionary in Haiti and Fr. Jack Conley, C.P., superior of our Passionist Community at Catholic Theological Union
in Chicago.  If you cannot be with us here on Saint Ann’s holy ground, please pray with us every day wherever you happen to be.

I am deeply grateful for all of your past devotion and generosity to Saint Ann’s.  I look forward to your continuing devotion
and support as we intensify our prayer to good Saint Ann.

In Christ’s Passion,

Very Rev. Richard Burke, C.P.
Rector

Father’s Day Fundraiser

Posted by admin - May 9th, 2019

May 2019,

Dear Friends of Saint Ann,

HAPPY SUMMERTIME!!!  As we move into June, we celebrate Father’s Day with the same gratitude we had when we
honored our Mothers in May.  We cherish wonderful memories of our fathers who have gone home to God and breathe
new life into hopes and dreams for our fathers who are still with us.

Once again, we celebrate our fathers here at Saint Ann’s with our Father’s Day Fundraising Drawing.  One of our latest
winners always thought she was making a donation until I called and told her she had won third prize.  I find it interesting
that the vast majority of winners say they have never won anything before this.  Perhaps you can be one of those this
Father’s Day.  Please fill out your tickets and return the ticket stubs with the recommended donation of $5.00 for each ticket.

Once again, I thank you most sincerely for your participation and financial assistance.  St. Ann’s depends on your
generosity, your devotion and your prayers.  Be assured you and your heartfelt intentions are in our daily prayers, asking
St. Ann’s intercession for God’s continued blessings for you and your loved ones.

In Christ’s Passion,

V. Rev. Richard Burke, C.P.
Rector
