Our Mission: St. Anne’s is a ministry for mothers of all ages providing opportunities to meet for spiritual, social and educational enrichment. It is our hope that through participation in St. Anne’s Society, members will be rewarded with friendships that will last a lifetime and spiritual nourishment for their journey through motherhood.
Meetings are typically held on the third Thursday of the month at 7PM. In addition to monthly meetings, the society will host family events, parent/child outings, mother’s socials and much more. Members will also have many opportunities to support our church family and the community beyond CtR through various social outreach endeavors.
Monthly Meetings [Alba Ayala - President, Misty Schleisher - Meeting programs, Erica Soileau & Sarah Beth Smother - Chaplains]
In our fourth year as a group our goal is to continue our growth as Catholics and mothers with interactive and inspirational fun at our general meetings. We will continue to focus on building the group’s membership and cultivating friendships, while expanding our spiritual nourishment with a scripture reflection and small discussion at each meeting. We will be discussing our challenges and then sharing our successes and solutions.
So that we can all enjoy adult fellowship, babysitting will be available at the general meetings for $5 a family (newborn and breastfeeding infants are welcome at meetings).
