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.

2020 Salesian Pilgrimage Southern France
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
France is often referred to as “the eldest daughter of the church.” It is a place that has given the church great saints and beautiful cathedrals. The country also has a unique relationship with our Lady, as shown by the many ancient churches and cathedrals dedicated to her, and even the little statues of Mary in niches on the walls of village houses. Along with its spiritual heritage, France is a country noted for its food, wines and natural scenery.
I would like to invite you to join with Fr. Tony Gilborges, OSFS and me as we offer a spiritual pilgrimage through Southern France, November 3 – 11, 2020. Our pilgrimage will include Annecy, home of St. Francis de Sales and birthplace of Salesian Spirituality. We will visit various holy sites in the Provence region of France and share in its culinary delights and world-famous wines. We will spend time in Avignon, the medieval home of the popes. Our pilgrimage will culminate at the beautiful city of Lourdes where we will visit the Grotto of the apparition of Our Lady and participate in the beautiful candlelight procession.
A pilgrimage is a spiritual journey meant to foster a deeper relationship with God by visiting and praying at holy places; in this case at the places where some of the greatest saints of the Church lived and proclaimed the Gospel in their day….and where we can now seek their powerful intercession for ourselves and for our parish, family and friends. I have led many pilgrimages in the past 15 years from three different parishes, and I have seen many graces flow from them, especially in my own life and in the life of the parishes.
Prayerfully consider joining Fr. Tony and me on this wonderful opportunity to deep your understanding of Salesian spirituality, participate in the prayerful experience that is Lourdes and take in the beauties of Provence and southern France.
Fr. Steve Shott, OSFS and Fr. Tony Gilborges, OSFS
