“The mission of the Saint Ann Safety Ministry is to promote a safer environment by developing & implementing practices and training that will ensure the protection and well-being of our parish community.”
The St. Ann Safety Ministry has an overall goal of providing useful and safety-related information to our parishioners. We will periodically provide a “Safety Ministry Update” in the church bulletin. This update is intended to inform our parishioners of relevant safety information in an ongoing effort to provide a safe and secure place of worship.
The inaugural “Safety Ministry Update” has very important information on the location of two new Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) recently placed in the Parish Hall and the Learning Center. The AED in the Parish Center is located on the wall in the front lobby and the AED in the Learning Center is in the front lobby of Learning Center #1. There is also an AED located in the back of the church near the cry room. The Safety Ministry has scheduled AED/CPR/First Aid training for the staff and ushers next month with additional training to be offered in the future. The Safety Ministry looks forward to serving our parish in this very important endeavor.
What to do when faced with a worse-case scenario
For the safety of all, it is requested that all vehicles make a right turn only onto U.S. 70. following all weekend masses. Those drivers wishing to travel westbound on U.S. 70 may then make a U-turn at the next available access. This will expedite the flow of traffic leaving the church property as well as the traffic entering the church parking lot. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
