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

Mother’s Day Fundraiser

Posted by admin - April 16th, 2019

April 2019,

Dear Friends of Saint Ann,

Little by little, we have been coaxing springtime into the open.  We are about to be enthralled with May flowers, blooming out
of a grey, wet, cool winter and early spring.  I hope this finds you well and ready to welcome our summer and its several
special celebrations.

My first May thought lands on Mother’s Day.  We honor our mothers, both living and deceased, with hearts grateful for the gift
of life.  Here at Saint Ann’s, we celebrate with our Mother’s Day Fundraising Drawing.  We have these several times throughout
the year to help us finish our financial year without debt.  We are most grateful for your continuing support of our Passionist
Community and ministries here at Saint Ann’s.  Our last winners were Robert M. of Middletown PA, Kelly M. of Dunmore PA,
Marguerite R. of Louisville KY, Marian V. of Pittston PA and Barbara Y. of Carbondale PA.

I would be thrilled to give you a call on Mother’s Day to say your ticket was drawn for one of our prizes.  When I spoke with
our last first prize winner, I heard “Oh my God, let me sit down”.  Such shock can be very welcome.  Please fill out your tickets
and return the ticket stubs to me with your donation of $5.00 for each ticket.

We count on your participation and we are most grateful.  Please be assured that you and your intentions continue to be in
our prayers each day.

Through the intercession of Saint Ann, may God bless you in every way?

In Christ’s Passion,

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