Vision Statement of Saint Anne Parish:
Instill the Courage, Live the Mission
The vision statement of St. Anne Parish is two fold. First it, guides us to help parishioners develop Christian courage. Secondly, it insists that we act on the demands of the Roman Catholic faith.
Being a Roman Catholic Christian in today’s world takes courage! As a parish we need to help each other develop and maintain the courage to profess this faith. We ask God that we might receive the necessary strength.
Once we have the courage, we need to live in the faith. The Gospel of Jesus is our guide and our Roman Catholic tradition is our support. We need to sow the seeds of the Gospel regardless of which type of ground it falls on. Some will fall among the rocks and wither, some will fall among the weeds and be chocked out, but some will fall on fertile ground and thrive beyond our expectations! But, we need to sow or none will find fertile soil.
