Thank You – may seem so insignificant at times, but during the outbreak of the Coronavirus, a THANK YOU is in order for all those many individuals who are putting their lives on the line to assist us in so many ways – including, but not limited to, the medical teams, first responders, researchers looking for a cure, those individuals volunteering and donating their time to help, neighbors looking after one another, those making masks and other needed essentials, and those who continue stocking shelves so that food and other necessities are there for us when we go shopping. Thank You & God Bless You!
We thank the
Community Foundation of Fayette County for the donation of three-ply masks to
our Parish, as well as to other non-profit organizations located in or serving
residents of Fayette, Greene, Washington and Westmoreland counties. Their
generosity is appreciated.
All New Masses will be available after 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

DLA--Thank you for your generosity with this year's Diocesan Lenten Appeal. The Diocesan Goal was $52,215.00, which we reached and exceeded. To date we have pledged $58,055.00. The extra $5,840.00 will be applied to the new air conditioning unit for our church. Thank You again for your generosity during these difficult and unprecedented times.
Many thanks to so many of you who continue your Sunday contributions. Even though there is still a wariness because of the Covid-19, you still continue to be generous – dropping your envelopes in the mail, or the mailbox by the office door, or on-line giving. God Bless you. Your generosity enables us to meet our monthly expenses.
The new air-conditioner for the Church was installed the first week in August. In addition to your regular Sunday contributions, I am asking if you could make an additional contribution for this new Church air-conditioning unit. You may still be at home because of the virus, but when you return, you will be assured of a new energy efficient air-conditioning unit that will keep you comfortable while in Church. Any donation – large or small – is appreciated. All you need to do is place your donation in an envelope. Along with your name (so that we can give you credit for your donation), mark on the envelope – "New A/C Fund." Many Thanks in advance for your generosity, and God Bless You!
♫ A Message from Josie the Organist ♫
Hello parish family! I have something important I'd like to talk to you about today. There have been numerous sexual assault allegations brought against liturgical composer, David Haas. He wrote some of your favorite songs we sing regularly such as Blest Are They, You Are Mine, We Have Been Told, We Are Called, and We Will Rise Again, just to name a few. The Church condemns these abusive actions. Because of these reports, I will be suspending the use of his music for the time being in union with the parishes of the Archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis, Mr. Haas' home diocese, as well as many of my liturgical musician colleagues' parishes. By eliminating his songs from our repertoire, I do not wish to show any agenda, but rather I am choosing to do this in support for the victims and survivors of abuse from lay individuals in positions of authority within the Church. I hope that this kind of transparency can help parishioners make informed decisions about what songs to use for funerals and weddings. Open communication about this sensitive topic will hopefully foster a safer environment and provide much-needed validation and support to all victims and survivors, taking the burden off of their hearts as we share it together in solidarity as a community. More information about this can be found at https://www.archspm.org/statement-regarding-david-haas/. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns, or if you wish to discuss this matter further. It is truly a pleasure to serve the Church of St. Anne parish community. Thanks for reading!
