Dear St. Ann School Families, 
In these times of uncertainty, please know that St. Ann's Church and our priests are still here for you as we grapple with the "new normal."  Although Masses and parish devotions have been suspended for the time being, we are keeping the church open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for private prayer and visits to the Blessed Sacrament.  If you are looking for ways to encourage a few moments of prayer with your children, make a visit to St. Ann's.  You can pray the Stations of the Cross (booklets are available); pray a decade of the Rosary together; read a Bible story together; or just light a candle and explore some of the stained glass windows that tell stories of our greatest saints.  Perhaps now more than ever, we need to let our children (and ourselves) know that God remains with us, guiding us and loving us on this challenging journey.  If Fr. Mink or Fr. Jasper can help you in any way these next few weeks, please reach out to them via Fr. Jasper's email: rjasper@stannwilmington.com. God's continued blessings of good health and peace to your family.
