 The Holy Year of Mercy

Pope Francis has proclaimed a Holy Year of Mercy to begin in Advent 2015 and extend through November 2016. This coincides with the new liturgical year that features the Gospel of Luke in our Sunday readings.

God is always merciful, but this is a year to contemplate God’s mercy anew. We rejoice in God’s faithful love and open ourselves more readily to become active agents of God’s mercy in the world, in our communities, and in our homes.

On Mount Sinai God reveals himself to Moses as “the Lord, the Lord, a God gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in love and fidelity” (Exodus 34:6). In Luke, Jesus’ ministry begins on the same note, with a declaration of God’s mercy.

The challenge for us is to believe in the messenger in such a way that we also become agents of God's mercy, announcing the good news of God's kingdom, bringing God's mercy to the poor, the blind and those held captive to the materialism of the world.

Welcome to St. Ann Roman Catholic Church, a strong, faithful parish located twenty miles from San Antonio, Texas. Our church family has grown to nine hundred families over the past forty-nine years. We will celebrate our Golden Jubilee as a parish in November 2015.

Mass is celebrated by our parish priest, Father Stanislaw (Stan) Fiuk. He was born in Poland and shares his enthusiasm in spreading God's message across the world starting in Poland, extending to the Ukraine, Italy, Bolivia and now at St. Ann Church in La Vernia.

Along with a sanctuary built in 2000, we have a Stations of the Cross Walkway that includes an Olive Garden, statuary, gazebo, grottos and waterfall. Our Lady of Guadalupe stands in her grotto greeting everyone that enters our city. Catholics and Non-Catholics stop on their daily journey to reflect on Jesus's earthly journey. During the Lenten season, the Stations of the Cross are contemplated on Friday evenings in our crosswalk.

We invite you to join us at Mass or stop by for a visit.
