St. Anne’s Introduces “The Year of the Family”

The Mission:  A year full of activities, events, and prayer to strengthen our spiritual families in their many forms.

Whole Parish Involvement:  Each commission will sponsor two activities throughout the year in this effort.  Look for event information in the bulletin or on our website.  Please sign up for our weekly email with prayers, activities and recipes by clicking on the following link:  http://eepurl.com/gK47Fz

In Line with Unleash the Gospel:  This theme fully supports the Archdiocese’s initiative of Unleash The Gospel.  The Archdiocese is offering two programs to parishes to enhance our families’ spiritual life:

  • 52 Sundays – a program to reestablish Sunday as a day for God.  52sundays.com
  • The 7 Habits of Flourishing Families – a series of online workshops that explore the habits and building blocks of family faith life.  7habits.aodonline.org

January’s Family Meal Challenge:  We challenge you to sit down together as a family at least once-a-week to share a meal.  Begin with prayer/grace.  Make it a no-technology meal.  Try to have every member of the family participate in the table talk.  The weekend of January 4/5 we will provide votive candles to light before your meal.
