Opening Mass at Saint Ann, 17th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Dear Parishioners,
     As previously announced, the Opening Mass at Saint Ann of the Dunes will be held this Sunday, July 26, 2020 at 10 a.m.  This Mass will celebrate the namesake of the Parish, as well as First Communions.  For this Mass, all are welcome, NO RESERVATIONS will be required.
     There will be limited seating in the church, so that we may be able to follow the Diocesan guidelines and the guidelines that have been established by the Governor of the State of Indiana.
     Outside seating will be available to accommodate those that will not be able to be seated in the church proper.  Face Masks will be required to attend this Mass, both inside and outside.  Due to the COVID-19 regulations, there will be no food provided immediately following the Mass.
     We will also be Live Streaming this Mass for those not able to attend or prefer to remain home.  The streamed mass will be available shortly before 10 a.m. on Sunday, July 26, 2020 and can be found on our Parish YouTube Channel.  A link will also be provided on our Parish Facebook Page and on or Parish Website under Mass/Live Streamed Mass.
     In addition, we will have a broadcast Mass available on Saturday, July 25, 2020 at 6 p.m.  Click on the available link for the 17th Sunday of Ordinary Time.
     Regular Sunday collections this past weekend were $1,555, well below our Weekly Budgeted target of $4,800 as shown on the downloadable Money Management Report.  Thank you to those continuing to support our parish with your financial contributions.  They are appreciated.
     Finally, as we gradually reopen Saint Ann, the next public Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.  In order to attend that Mass, because of limited seating in the Church, you will need to use the SAVE-A-SEAT Reservation system that can be found on the Saint Patrick Website.   There will be a listed Mass for Saint Ann and then follow the directions.  You will receive a Confirmation email and you will need to bring that confirmation with you to that Mass on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.
     Our Lady of Lourdes, Pray for Us.
     Many good things to you,
     Father Jon Plavcan, Administrator
