Holy Mass is celebrated every day in our parish church.

Saint Anselm Church and School is a Catholic community formed by families, individuals and clergy who worship together, celebrate the sacramental life of the Church, and seek to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their everyday lives. We strive to welcome, serve and educate. We look forward to meeting you in church soon! We are also most grateful to all who support Saint Anselm Parish through EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer), Online Giving, and registering as official members of the parish. Especially during this pandemic, we rely on your generosity to make ends meet.

God bless,
Father William Brown – pastor

Reflections on the Word

St. Anselm Spiritual Life Committee will be presenting monthly “Reflections on the Word”. Each Month a member of the St. Anselm community (not Fr. Brown or a Deacon) will give a reflection from the previous Sunday’s Gospel reading followed by group comments or additional thoughts on the readings.
Since delivery of homilies is limited to ordained ministers, this is an opportunity for our community, and willing individuals, to give their own thoughts on what they heard or felt in the Sunday readings. What charism was gifted to you by the Gospel? Did the Sunday homilist skip over an inspiring wisdom in the first reading? This is a chance for the larger parish to reflect, to express, and to share. Everything will be Zoomed to the comfort of your home. If you would be interested in being a presenter please let us know.
Next Reflection: TDB

Morning Prayer & Evening Prayer

Are you interested in participating in the Liturgy of the Hours? Deacon Bob Meave is providing a user friendly version of the Liturgy of the Hours for parishioners to participate in. There is an opportunity to join in the prayers, listen, or both. If you have questions or would like to get on the weekly reminder email, please contact Deacon Bob at robt88@gmail.com
