We, the people of Saint Anne Parish of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis, are Catholic Christian people. We strive to enable our community to use their gifts in a variety of ministries, such as serving God together in Christian ways, being Christian witnesses in the community, by teaching each other, by following the teachings of Christ by His examples, and by drawing together. We live in a rural Parish community and we keep the harmony, peace and fellowship alive in order to express our commitment to the gospel. It is our pilgrimage in this life to welcome, deepen and develop the faith that God has planned in this community. Jesus, our Savior, transform us into Yourself, so that our hearts, minds, and bodies serve only to glorify You. Make our memory, will and emotions one with Yours. Grant that we may live only in You and for You, and that we may truly say with St. Paul: “I live, now not I, but Christ lives in me.” Lord, Jesus, bless our parish mission. Encourage parishioners and others to participate. Help us to know and love You with heart, mind, and soul. Make our parish more and more a visible sign of Your presence. Amen.
