How to get on Father Brown’s email list:

Use the link above to register officially as a member of the parish, AND provide an updated email address. Be sure to check your spam folder so you will get news each month from the pastor about events, scheduling, etc. (Each time I use our computer system to email our members, only about HALF of the people registered receive the email. In some cases, they don’t do email; in other cases, their email address is obsolete.)

Participate in Pope Francis’ Synod

St. Anselm’s synod survey resultsOn Saturday, May 21 at 6:00 p.m. (after evening Mass) and on Sunday, May 22 at 11:00 a.m. (after morning Mass), parishioner Laurie Joyce will report on the responses from St. Anselm’s parishioners to the Disciple Maker Index   Survey (Archdiocesan synod participation effort) and next steps, followed by an invitation to discuss a question that was not on the Survey:  “What would you tell Pope Francis is most important for the future of the Catholic Church?” Depending on weather and the number of attendees, we will gather in Centennial Hall or the church courtyard.

Archdiocesan Annual Appeal 2022

As of May 4, we have received $49,296 toward our goal for this year’s Annual Appeal of $71,805.00 (which is $4,441.00 less than last year).

I donated one thousand dollars to the AAA as I do each year, because I know firsthand how much the ADSF helps us, especially when we need guidance in terms of human resource, legal assistance, or training for safety. If you can, please match my gift, or exceed it. Every dollar we raise in excess of our goal comes back to us: we intend to use that overage to fund maintenance on our beloved parish church, built back in 1908. To learn more, or to donate to the parish goal, please go here. Be sure to select “St. Anselm” from the dropdown list of churches. Thank you for your support! Father Brown
