Streamed Parish Masses
28th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Excerpts from directives from the Archdiocese of Portland:
"The use of face masks is required for all indoor faith gatherings and meetings. Social distancing and capacity limits are not currently in effect...
The Archdiocesan COVID-19 Response team has consulted with faithful Catholic medical experts who have confirmed the contagious nature of the Delta variant and the dire situation of our hospital systems in Oregon. In charity, we must do our part to help stop the spread of this dangerous variant."
Locally, St. Anne, will re-introduce the shorter 8 AM and regular length 9 AM Masses to our Sunday schedule beginning on Aug. 14th. The hope is that this will create more opportunities for spacing.
While not required, it would be a kindness and charity to be mindful of distancing (current recommendation of 3 ft instead of 6 ft) as we have observed previously.

The law of the LORD is perfect,
refreshing the soul;
the decree of the LORD
giving wisdom to the simple.
The fear of the LORD is pure,
the ordinances of the LORD
are true, all of them just.
Though your servant is
careful of them,
very diligent in keeping them,
Yet who can detect failings?
Cleanse me from my
From wanton sin especially, restrain your servant;
let it not rule over me.
Then shall I be blameless and innocent
of serious sin."

Our New Church
If you come to St. Anne, you my notice our beautiful new church building. There many miracles associated with this project which began back in 2013 and was dedicated in 2018.
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.
