Special Rosary

March 25, Wednesday, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of Lord, we as a parish will pray the Rosary (All the mysteries) starting at 3.00 pm, for the speedy recovery from the present fear and anguish caused by the pandemic of COVID -19.
All those who are able to join the Rosary from your own homes (you need not come to the church), are most welcome to join at 3.00 pm.  While praying the Rosary, let us remember to pray for:

– All those who are affected
– All those who died
– All those who are serving the affected
– All the families and countries struggling with this.

May the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and of the Church, Health of the sick and Help of Christians and our Advocate, intercede for us to save us from the evil of this pandemic

Sunday Mass

St. Anne’s Parish COVID 19 Update

Public Masses in the parishes of the Diocese of St. Paul are suspended.

The Weekend Masses and Week day Masses are cancelled until further notice. The church will remain open during the day. Those who wish to come and pray individually, are most welcome. There will be no common penitential service.  Those who wish to make confession, call me and make an appointment.
Let us pray together that our community and the entire world will be freed from the threat of Coronavirus.
Fr. Johnny IMS


Almighty and merciful Father,
We thank you for the life that is your gift,
For the providence, that sustains us,
And for your wisdom that directs the course of our days.
Forgive our sins against your love,
Against each other and against your creation.
The threat of an infection of coronavirus is upon us today.
This disease causes fear among us and has claimed some lives.
We humbly beg you, loving Father
To deliver us from this and other diseases.
Heal those who are afflicted and stop the spread of the virus.
Strengthen us in charity to care for each other.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit
One God for ever and ever. Amen
