St. Anne’s Society 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 at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month. 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.

Founded in 2006, our goal is to continue our growth as Catholics and mothers with interactive and inspirational fun at our general meetings. During the 2013-14 year we had 45 members. We will continue to focus on building the group’s membership and cultivating friendships, while fulfilling 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 nursing infants are welcome at meetings.

Outside of our regular monthly meetings we will provide various social opportunities including parent-child outings, moms-only socials, date nights, and family activities. The schedule will be varied so everyone will have an opportunity to participate. You decide what sounds fun and fits best into your schedule.
