• A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR NOTICE OF CHANGE IN DAILY MORNING MASS TIME (EFFECTIVE JANUARY 2, 2017) 31 July 2016 Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: I hope that you are enjoying summer and are finding some peace and some ease in the slower pace in Naples this time of year. After a year of inquiry among members of the parish and in consultation with those responsible for the parishs liturgical life, we have decided that effective 2 January 2017, the daily morning Mass will move to 9:00AM. There are several reasons for this change: 1- Our two neighboring parishes both offer an 8:00AM Mass. A different time provides another option to all daily Mass participants in the area. 2- The super majority of daily Mass attendees are retirees. Several parishioners have indicated to us that due to age and medical issues, the 8:00AM Mass is just too early for them to ever be able to attend. While it is true that there is a 12:15PM Mass during season, the year-long morning Mass never proves to be an option for these individuals. 3- Because of medical issues, not all priests in the parish are able to celebrate the 8AM Mass. A 9AM Mass will make it possible for all priests to preside at daily Mass. We have to acknowledge that we are blessed to have four priests here but at the same time understand that the priests, while aging, are remaining committed to serving the people of the parish. 4- During the school year, the Friday Mass always has to be held at 8:30AM in order to accommodate the school schedule. This difference in time is confusing. By changing the time, a 9:00AM Mass will be offered seven days a week. We are well aware that not everyone will be pleased with this decision. I learned a long time ago that when decisions are made, they are rarely met with universal praise or acclamation. Change is incredibly difficult for most, even if that change is beneficial in the long term. We did not make this decision lightly but after much consultation and after a great deal of prayer and thought. It is, however, our duty as parish priests and parish staff to serve the People of God in the best way possible and we believe this adaptation is for the good of the parish. We thank you for your gracious flexibility and openness to the new graces that will come with this change. We are hopeful that this change will continue to foster a greater love of the Eucharist here at Saint Ann. Sincerely yours, Father Michael

In remembering the fateful events of September 11, 2001, may we resolve to put aside our differences and join together in the task of renewing our nation and world. Let us make our own the prayer of Pope Benedict XVI when he visited Ground Zero in New York in 2008: O God of love, compassion, and healing, look on us, people of many different faiths and traditions, who gather today at this site, the scene of incredible violence and pain…. God of understanding, overwhelmed by the magnitude of this tragedy, we seek your light and guidance as we confront such terrible events. Grant that those whose lives were spared may live so that the lives lost here may not have been lost in vain. Comfort and console us, strengthen us in hope, and give us the wisdom and courage to work tirelessly for a world where true peace and love reign among nations and in the hearts of all.
