Pastor’s Message

Pastor: Rev. Fr. Denis Ssekannyo

Greetings and welcome to St. Ann faith community. I invite you to come and share the life of the Lord, Jesus Christ with us. We believe that we are committed to proclaiming the gospel, joyfully celebrating the sacraments, building a friendly and welcoming community, and serving the needs of our neighbor especially the poor and marginalized.

After 4 years at St. Ann’s Church, I realize that even though we are a mid-sized parish our varied backgrounds, busy lifestyles, and even liturgical preferences can make us feel detached and separated from each other. Please know that you too are welcome and we want you to be a part of our believing and worshipping community. It is our strong faith in the Risen and Living Lord, our love and deep desire to support St. Ann parish and St. Ann school, and our love for each other that draws us together to bring faith to life.

If you are currently a member of St. Ann parish, we are glad you are here. If you are new to Ridgecrest or just visiting, we invite you to learn more about our parish. Please get to know the different ministries and programs St. Ann has to offer. They are open to everyone.  Know the contacts you need to participate more fully in your parish.

Come, worship the Lord Almighty with us; share the living Word of the scriptures with us; join us for perpetual adoration of the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Let’s celebrate and grow in the Lord, Jesus.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Denis Ssekannyo
