COVID-19 Protective Measures

Suspension of activities at St. Ann Catholic Church, Monday, March 16 Indefinitely.

Message from Father Rayanna:

To all of you, my parishioners and all other members of this community, I am praying for you in my daily Mass, that you and your families stay safe and healthy. Linked here are the Mass Intentions through April 4.

Please remember that if you have an emergency and you are in need of anointing of the sick you can call the church office to contact me. In light of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) spread and the request of Gov. Newsom to limit assemblies, the Fresno Diocese has suspended public Masses (Sunday and weekday), along with all activities and meetings of any kind, at the parishes and schools INDEFINITELY, as noted per the Directives posted on this website. Until the suspension is lifted, at St. Ann Church, there are:

  • No Sunday Mass or weekday Mass.
  • No confessions, and no Lenten Penitential Service.
  • No Perpetual Adoration.
  • No Stations of the Cross.
  • No Friday Fish Fry
  • No religious education and sacramental preparation programs.
  • No other meetings of any kind — Prayer Meetings, Bible Study, Parish Council Meeting, Knights of Columbus, Legion of Mary, etc.

Please contact the Church Office, 760-375-2110, for urgent needs and medical emergencies, including administering sacraments to the sick.

A message from Bishop Joseph V. Brennan, and updates from the Fresno Diocese, may be found on their website at https://dioceseoffresno.org/.

Please consider the ongoing financial needs of the parish as expenses still continue! Mail in your contributions or drop them off at the parish office, or put the extra collection into the basket once we return to Sunday Mass. God bless you — and thanks!

Meanwhile, during these closures, Bishop Robert Baron, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, who is located in Santa Barbara and is also the founder of the Word on Fire Ministry, is broadcasting daily mass from his chapel, and we’ve added the link below so you don’t have to miss Mass any day! https://www.wordonfire.org/daily-mass/ It is updated at 5:15 AM daily to display the current day’s Mass. The celebrant will be either Bishop Baron or Fr. Steve Grunow (CEO of Word on Fire).

You can also see televised Mass and pray the Rosary over the internet from the Diocesan station, KNXT at http://knxt.tv/index.html – check their program schedule for dates and times.
