Act of Spiritual Communion
My dearest Jesus, I believe that You are in present the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. I love You above all things, and I long for You to dwell in my soul. Since I cannot now attend the Sacrifice of Holy Mass and receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
Our Lady of Lourdes, Health of the Sick and Mother of Mercy, pray for us.

Named in honor of Saint Ann, the mother of Mary, and grandmother of Jesus.
Founded in 1859 by Bishop James R. Bayley, nephew of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton and cousin to Presidents Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt.
In 1861, Bishop Bayley officially received Reverend Claude Rolland and appointed him the first resident Pastor of the parish.
As pastor, Father Rolland built the original Parish Church, a wooden frame building on John Street, today used as a private residence.
As the Parish grew, Saint Ann’s second pastor, Rev. Msgr. Patrick Leonard constructed the current church. The cornerstone was laid on July 4, 1866. It was completed the following year.
