Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer — prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. Contact: David Tamashiro at firstname.lastname@example.org or
Taize is a form of contemplative worship. Short chants, repeated again and again, give Taize prayer a meditative character. Using just a few words, the chants express a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the mind. As the words are sung over many times, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being. Taize prayer is offered during the Advent and Lenten liturgical seasons. Check the weekly bulletin for dates and times.
Eucharistic Adoration is a quiet reflective time of personal prayer. Our physical presence before the Real Presence in the tabernacle expresses an inner attitude that extends beyond the moments of prayer. On the First Friday of every month, the Queen of Peace Chapel is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for a time of personal Eucharistic Adoration. It closes with a Holy Hour, including Benediction and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 6 to 7 p.m.
The Rosary Making Guild teaches participants to make rosaries for themselves and for the missions that the guild supports. All supplies are provided.

In Service to our Neighbor
Heeding God’s call to “love your neighbor, as I have loved you,” parishioners of St. Ann Church offer their time, talent and treasure to those in need. Corporal works of mercy are an important part of parish life and there are many opportunities to serve.
Beginning the first weekend after Thanksgiving, this event supports the homeless children in our community and their families with the purchase of gift cards for such items as food, basic necessities and clothing donated by the members of the St. Ann Church community. Several agencies have been recipients of these items each year because of their hard work in addressing the needs of these special children and their families. Preparation for the event begins in early November with the creating of handmade ornaments for the Giving Tree. The tree is decorated on the morning after Thanksgiving in the church vestibule.
