Spiritual & Temporal Nourishment for our Parish
History, Purpose & Structure
St. Ann’s Guild was originally formed during the early years of our Parish as a fundraising organization for the current and on-going needs of the Parish. St. Ann’s Guild was re-established in the Fall of 2014 with a two-fold goal and purpose: SPIRITUAL and TEMPORAL.
