St. Ann Helping Hands - Lenten Appeal
Normally, we request funds to assist the orphans in Ukraine. Unfortunately, this year, due to the pandemic, we have no way to assure that these funds will be received at the orphanage. So, Helping Hands is instead turning our attention to the needs of the local community. To do so, we need your help. Please donate Giant and/or Boscov gift cards or money to Helping Hands. We will distribute these gifts to our local community. Regular envelopes containing the gift cards or monetary donations should be placed into the regular slots in the back of the Church. Please mark the outside of the envelopes "Helping Hands - Lenten Appeal." Also please write "Helping Hands - Lenten Appeal" in the bottom left-hand corner of your check. Checks should still be made payable to St. Ann Byzantine Catholic Church. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
St. Ann Gift and Book Shop
will be open for the upcoming Easter holiday every Sunday between Liturgies up to and including Palm Sunday. Masks are required.

Saint Ann Parish is happy to now offer the safety and convenience of online electronic giving as an option to our parishioners and friends.
This is now available through the Tithe.ly service. You can use this option along with all the traditional ways of supporting your parish: envelopes, cash and checks. We have been testing this service for several weeks and are confident in how it works. We believe that if you choose to use it, you will find that it is easy to use. You have many options to choose from. You can give one time or set up a recurring weekly or monthly donation. This can be from a credit card or a checking account. The choice is yours. Many choose to give online to save the hassle of repeated check writing or mailing in their donations. Even if you make online donations, you can still use paper envelopes at ANY time.
