“The Church needs to be concerned for, and present in, the world of communication, in order to dialogue with people today and to help them encounter Christ” (Pope Francis)
We expect the features and capabilities of our new app to foster a stronger sense of community and faith in the daily lives of all parishioners.
ST. Anne will be able to communicate quick and easy with all parishioners via messages and notifications to keep you in the loop with what is going on in our church. You will then be able to quickly reply to messages or RSVP for upcoming events.
Other features will include:
– the daily readings read at Mass,
– the latest Catholic news from around the world,
– an easy-to-reference list of Catholic prayers with prayer requests,
– a helpful examination of conscience and next confession reminder,
– a reminder feature called “Mass Mode,” for Mass and confession. This includes phone silencing notification to help encourage us all to be more present while at Saint Anne.
– and much more.
As you can see, this app offers a lot of capabilities for improving parish communication and serving as a faith building resource. It is well thought out and should become a real asset to complement our daily faith lives. Our app is available for everyone to download right now.
For rating of motion pictures visit the OFFICE FOR FILM AND BROADCASTING of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). You will find rating theatrical motion pictures, previewing and evaluating television programming as well as providing the Catholic public with information about the role of the entertainment and news media in influencing societal and personal values.
You probably know that the church bulletin you are reading is a free service provided to our parish through the courtesy of the local business people and entrepreneurs who are listed on the back page. Please take a few moments today and every few weeks to look over the back page of our bulletin and notice the people who are supporting our parish and are offering your services you might need. It would be a good thing to do business with them and to mention our parish and thank them for their ad when you talk with them. If you would like to advertise your business or service, please call the bulletin company and they will gladly give you the information you will need. Advertise in the parish bulletin.
