Hospitality Ministries

The Gathering

Greeter

The Greeters create a pleasant environment by welcoming people to mass by opening the doors, saying hello, staffing the information tables in the gathering space and providing direction to visitors. These hospitality ministers, along with the ushers, help create a culture of hospitality before, during, and after mass.

Prayer Ministries

Being a Giant

Our youth need prayer giants on their side that will be storming the gates of Heaven on their behalf!  This is a three-year commitment to pray for one individual every day.  This will begin on their Confirmation day, lead them through their senior year of high school, and into their first two years of college.  At a time when many young people leave the church in search of worldly happiness, a sense of belonging, and a need to be understood, we invite you to a ministry of prayer for one individual that he/she may not be overcome by this world but persevere in faith.

Contact Terry Laughlin for more info: Terry_Laughlin@oxy.com

Eucharistic Adoration

As Catholics, we believe in the real presence of Jesus’ body, blood, soul and divinity in the Eucharist. Worship of the Lord's Eucharistic presence draws us closer to himself and gives us a greater desire for holy communion with him. Exposition of the Eucharistic Host, for adoration by all the faithful, takes place in St. Anne Church Monday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. This ministry is made possible by individuals making a weekly commitment of one hour on the same weekday each week to ensure that the Eucharist is never left alone.

Formation Ministries

ALPHA

Everyone has questions. We believe everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world. Consider going through our new Adult Faith Formation series called ALPHA. This 11-week series will be offered at multiple times during the week and a new series will be started at various times throughout the year. 

Contact Fr. Sean O’Brien for more info: frsean@stanneba.org

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Team

Our Pre-K – 1st grade Faith Formation program uses a sacred space called an “Atrium” for its programming.  This sacred space allows these young children to encounter our Good Shepherd, Jesus, in a deeper way than in a classroom setting.  Both All Saints and St. Anne’s use this sacred space throughout the year.  We need individuals to work with us to consistently keep the Atrium beautiful for the children.  This includes preparing work material for the children, maintaining the plants and flowers in the Atrium, and preparing materials as we continue Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.  We need things sewn, built, and painted.

Faith Formation Food Committee

Almost every time the youth, children, and families of our parish are on campus participating in events to grow their faith during a meal time, we provide food (lunch, dinner, etc.)  This allows families to participate in Faith Formation with one less obstacle in the way of getting them here.  The Food Committee is a team of people who meet quarterly to create a menu of food options that will be offered throughout the year.  The team will also assist with some of the meal preparations but do not need to be excellent chefs.  This committee is comprised of individuals looking to feed the stomachs of young people in order that their hearts might be fed by the word of God.
