I am blessed to be a part of this Amazing Parish and the many ministries that help the People of God grow in holiness. I am originally from Ontario, Canada and met my wife Scarlett in Nicaragua (where she is from). In 2008 we married and have 5 wonderful children (Mateo, Brian, Clara, James and Ana). I oversee the K-12 Faith Formation, RCIA, Hispanic Adult Sacramental Prep, Adult Bible Study, Youth Group and other wonderful events and trips throughout the year. Please contact me if you are interested in knowing more about our Catholic Faith!

EVERY WONDERED WHY WE HAVE CATECHISM IN  SPANISH AND ENGLISH?

Here is a great article explaining the benefits:

 


CHILDREN/ YOUTH

Here at St. Ann Catholic Church we have a robust program for the formation of our children in the faith, with over 800 children in our program. Our catechetical year spans from September to May every year. Registration for the upcoming year usually begins in April. If you are new to the parish and would like to register your child for Faith Formation classes please contact Mr. Patrick Ginty for options. Jesus said “Let the children come to me”, we use this as our motto for always trying to accomodate anyone that comes to us. If your child is preparing for First Communion, Confirmation, Baptism or is simply in need of knowing more about the faith we are sure to have something for you.

Please refer to our online calendar or your printed calendar for the dates of the catechism classes.
