The Year of St. Joseph Comes to an End

As you may have read in the Little Blue Book for Advent, "Pope Francis proclaimed the year of St. Joseph to begin on December 8, 2020 and conclude on December 8, 2021.  His proclamation marked the 150th anniversary of Pope Pius IX's declaration of St. Joseph as the patron of the universal Church.  When Pius made the proclamation in 1870, the Catholic Church was enduring troubled times and under fire from many countries which urged extensive Church reform.  At one point, the pope himself was under house arrest.  Just as St. Joseph had protected the Holy Family, the pope also entrusted the beleaguered Church to the saint's protection.'  Source: Bishop Ken Untener and Catherine Haven, editor of the Little Books, Diocese of Saginaw

As a parish, we will soon transition from praying the prayer of St. Joseph to praying the Memorare before Mass. Look for this prayer to be in the front cover of the hymnals soon.

Weekend Mass
As our parish church offers two weekend Masses--4:30 p.m. on Saturday and 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, we want parishioners to know that Mass will continue to be live streamed on the parish Facebook page for those individuals who do not feel comfortable returning to the church building. Please be aware that the 9:30 a.m. Sunday Mass will be live streamed and following is the link which will take you directly to the Facebook site:

From Rt. 283 and Rt. 30
 

Take the Rt. 501S Exit (Lititz Pike) or Rt. 272S (Oregon Pike) and follow signs for Downtown Lancaster. Proceed on Route 501S/272S over the bridge. Once across the bridge, you will approach a traffic light. Stay in the left lane and continue straight on to North Duke St.

Immediately after the traffic light, you will find the entrance to the St. Anne Church parking lot on the left-hand side of Duke St. Look for brick pillars marking the entrance to the lot.

There are two doors off the lot for entering the church. One door is accessed by a ramp from the parking lot.  It is wheelchair accessible; and, there are two designated handicapped parking spaces located adjacent to the ramp entrance.
