History of Saint Ann Parish



Saint Ann Pray for Us

You were favored by God and called to be the

Mother of the Most Holy Virgin Mary.

You are thus blessed to be Grandmother of our Savior Jesus Christ.

By your intimacy with your most pure daughter and her divine Son,

protect this parish and family dedicated to

your saintly protection and intercession.

In your kindness, obtain for us the grace to love as a child of God.

Watch over our family.

Secure for us the strength of faith. Guide us to

perform faithfully all of our daily duties.

With God’s Mercy and the Divine Assistance help us in our time of need

and teach us to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary.


Our Patron, St Ann

Our patron,

 St. Brendan the Navigator,

once prayed as he was traveling, 

"Lord, help me,

for your sea is so big and my boat is so small."

  May Our Lord,

through this Parish Community,

help you navigate this big sea of life and guide you safely Home.

Our Patron, St Brendan

Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy

Dear Friends, 

I pray that this joyful Eastertide is a moment of true grace for you all! 

During Holy Week which culminated on Easter Sunday, we joined with the Church Universal as we once again encountered God’s gift of unselfish love through His Son, our Risen Lord Jesus Christ. Each year, Holy Week is such a powerful encounter with our God where we re-discover His deep and abiding love for us as it unfolds in the solemnity of that singular week. Here in our Collaborative of Saints Ann and Brendan, the power of the message of Holy Week and Easter was made manifest in the liturgical celebrations through word and sacrament – and we were so blessed in that moment of prayer. 

So much time and effort goes into the preparations for Holy Week to make all of the celebrations so blessed and meaningful. I am most grateful to all who helped in any way to make the week so special: my brother priest, Father Fiorillo, the collaborative staff, the sacristans, lectors, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, the altar servers, ushers and the many volunteers who helped to clean and decorate our magnificent churches. I am also very grateful to our directors of music, choirs, cantors and musicians who helped us to raise our voices in praise and thanksgiving as we joyfully exclaimed: Alleluia, Christ is Risen! 

Thank you as well to all who contributed to the support of the retirement needs of the priests of the Archdiocese of Boston. Your generosity was truly humbling for both me and Father Fiorillo. 

May this Eastertide serve to draw us closer to the Risen Christ and may we unite our prayers with our Blessed Lady under the title Regina Cæli – Queen of Heaven as together we proclaim Christ is Risen! 

In His peace, 

Father Michael E. Drea
