New Guidelines for St. Anne and Missions
From the Archdiocese, May 21 - We continue to pray for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) offer hope that we will return to more normal ways of living soon. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been doing our best to keep people safe and healthy when they come to church. We hear and understand your concerns about checking vaccination status and segregation. To this end, we are in contact with the Governor's Office about the new changes. In the meantime, we thank all our pastors and lay leaders for their good work in navigating their communities during these challenging times.
From Fr. Bill, May 21 - Given the latest guidelines by Archbishop Sample, St. Anne Parish and missions will not require masks or distancing for those at Mass who are"fully vaccinated." Those who have yet to be vaccinated and should continue to observe 6ft distancing and proper use of masks. We acknowledge that many people may be wearing masks for many other reason besides their vaccinated status. We will not be verifying vaccination status upon entry. People are encouraged to sit wherever they like and do not need to be sitting on any particular side of the church. All locations are open. We simply urged people to respect those who are wearing masks for whatever reason, and to offer them the needed physical distancing.
“It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
to sing praise to your name, Most High,
To proclaim your kindness at dawn
and your faithfulness throughout the night.

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.
