Saturday's: 2:30PM-3:30 PM
Given the rules regarding public gatherings and the need for social distancing we will need to make a few changes to how we normally do confessions on Saturday.
We will only allow 20 people in the church at a time for confession.
Whoever comes after that will sign in on a clipboard in the narthex. You will put down your name and phone number and will be asked to wait in your car.
Please exit the church right after your confession. You can go to the adoration chapel if you would like to stay in prayer for a while.
When someone comes out of confession the coordinator will call the next person in line on the list (be sure your ringer is set to sound and not in silent or vibrate mode – if you forget to turn it off and it rings in the confessional Father will still give you absolution).
If you do not answer your phone on the second attempt the coordinator will assume you have decided not to wait and will contact the next person down on the list.
If for any reason you do not have a cell phone, you will be asked to park in view of the front door so that the coordinator can simply step out and wave you in and you will also be able see when someone has left.
It will be like signing up on the waiting list at a restaurant only we won’t have those fancy buzzers.
Give Online to the Archbishop's Catholic Appeal

The ACA exclusively supports Catholic ministries in western Oregon. These ministries include Priest Support and Retirement, Pastoral Ministries, Campus Ministries, Vocations and Seminary Education, and much more.
Due to a generous archdiocesan grant and an equally generous private donation, St. Anne is now able to offer FORMED, an online gateway to some of the best Catholic content, all in one place! We will be offering this for a 1-year trial to see if parishioners use this resource and find it helpful. As always, your feedback is always welcome.
By clicking the link to the right, you can create your own FORMED account by using your own personal email and our specific parish access code. After that, simply browse, read, watch, and listen to whatever you want as much as you want. Even more, it is all free.

Our history began when Archbishop William Gross dedicated our first church building named after Saint Anne, mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary, on October 24, 1897. The church was named after the Shrine of St. Anne de Beaupre in Quebec, Canada. Later, Fr. Dan Kelly purchased 6 acres on N.E. 10th Street, Grants Pass, in 1954, for the construction of a new rectory, church, convent and school building for St. Anne parish. Father Kelly built his new rectory on 10th Street in 1956. He began construction of a new church in 1959. The new church was to be a fireproof, long rectangular building that would seat 700 persons. The original church design called for two rows of pews facing what is now the west entrance where the main altar was to be placed. Father Edmund Murnane, pastor of St. Mary parish in Eugene and friend of Father Kelly persuaded the St. Anne pastor to place the altar in the middle of the church so that people could see both the altar and the priest. In 2009, Fr. William Holtzinger was installed as the latest pastor. He is a native of the Southern Oregon area. In 2013, a process began to update the church building. What resulted was a collaborative effort of prayer, discernment, and fundraising which resulted in the demolition of the current church building and the construction of a new church building which was dedicated pm September 1, 2018. If you would like to tour our church, please come by our office or call for an appointment. We would love to share the miracle that God has done in our midst.
