St. Ann’s Parish is hosting

Adult Catechism Classes

You are invited - Come Join Us!

Every Wednesday at 6:30pm to 7:30 starts on September 15th, 2021.

This year you can renew your gift of faith and humbly ask the Holy Spirit to bring you closer to Christ, to encounter Him in the Sacraments and especially in the Eucharist.

By coming to class, we hope you can explore the richness of our Catholic faith. Studying Scripture alongside the Catechism helps us to remember what we know already in our heart of faith and learn to apply it in our everyday lives. The class is based on Holy Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Sacred Traditions.

Contact Monty at (253) 304-4473 – Class is No-cost in the St. Ann Classroom

“Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love.”
