Continuing our ministry of education, religion and culture, the Sisters of St. Anne are deeply committed to providing services for churches and parishioners, including:
- Providing religious education: offering programs for the Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
- Serving as pastoral associates: assisting with a variety of parish services including Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), visiting the sick, sacramental preparation programs, liturgical preparation, and administrative duties.
- Haitian Apostolate: directing this program of the Worcester Massachusetts Diocese. The Haitian Apostolate includes a parish twinning program and sponsorship of Haitian children, providing them with food, education, a school uniform, and other essentials. The Apostolate’s motto is: Give people fish and they are set for a day; teach people to fish and they are set for life; assure them a place at the stream and their children will provide for themselves.
