We Welcome You!
On behalf of our parish family I wish to extend a warm welcome to you on visiting our website. It is my hope and prayer that the community of believers at St. Ann will support your faith journey with our Lord. We are a vibrant, growing and engaged community located in historic downtown Fayetteville.
We are an active Catholic Community with a long and culturally diverse history. From our humble beginnings in a local barber shop in 1939 our parish has grown to be a vibrant witness to the Gospel of Life.
Sunday Eucharist is the heart of our parish community as it gives us life, strengthens us and calls us to holiness. We are committed to Catholic education and actively support St. Ann Catholic School, our Neighborhood Youth Center and in our life long Faith Formation Program.
Again, if you are new to the area, we hope that you will soon find a home with us. Please REGISTER with us and become a part of our family. We look forward to welcoming you at our worship and fellowship.
Fr. Steve Shott, O.S.F.S.

May 7 and 8 What does it really mean to ‘offer it up’?
May 14 and 16 NO Faith Matters
Our Summer Faith Matters SUMMER Series will focus on some of the most momentous Papal Encyclicals of the last 130 years. These teachings of our Popes have built on 2000 years of tradition and have shaped the Church in the Modern World. Come join us either on Tuesday evening at 7:00pm in the Social Hall or Tuesday Morning at 10:00am in the Chapel.
May 21 and 23 Rerum Novarum, Leo XIII 1891: We will explore this encyclical which is the foundation of all modern Catholic social teaching.
May 28 and 30 Providentissimus Deus, Leo XIII 1893: There had been other encyclicals on the Bible before, but none as momentous as this, and probably none since.
June 4 and 6 Pascendi Dominici Gregis, Pius X 1907: In this encyclical, the Catholic Church declared war on modernism, individualism, agnosticism, and relativism.
June 11 and 13 Casti Connubii, Pius XI 1930: Evangelium Vitae gets all the credit, but this is the encyclical that really established (or reaffirmed, rather) the Catholic teaching on contraception.
June 18 and 20 NO Faith Matters
June 25 and 26 Pacem in Terris, John XXIII 1963: Issued months after the Cuban missile crisis, Pacem in Terris sounded an urgent call for peace, based on a broad Christian vision of divine order, human rights, and the common good.
July 2 and 4 NO Faith Matters
July 9 and 11 Humanae Vitae, Paul VI 1968: Humanae Vitae threw down the gauntlet on the issue of contraception, the sexual revolution and other extremes of Human sexuality.
July 16 and 18 LABOREM EXERCENS, St. Pope John Paul II, 1981 THROUGH WORK man must earn his daily bread1 and contribute to the continual advance of science and technology and, above all, to elevating unceasingly the cultural and moral level of the society within which he lives in community with those who belong to the same family.
July 23 and 25 Laudato Si’, Pope Francis, 2015: Praise Be to You: On Care for Our Common Home is the landmark encyclical in which Pope Francis issued a call to the entire Church—and the world—on climate change, human responsibility, the role of faith in how we live among God’s entire creation, and the future of the planet.
