The Sisters of St. Anne continue the mission of education Mother Marie Anne entrusted to them by helping others to grow in truth, liberty and life. Our sisters serve in a variety of roles and places:
- Anna Maria College (Paxton, MA): Originally founded by the Sisters of St. Anne, we continue to provide moral sponsorship, presence on the board of trustees, and service in the position of the Director of Mission Effectiveness and Integration.
- Marie Anne Center (Worcester, MA): Marie Anne Center, located in the lower level of St. Bernard Church on Lincoln Street in Worcester, was
established in April, 2001, to address educational and
spiritual needs of families, especially of women and
children. The goal of the Center is to provide basic
education and living skills for people who would
otherwise not have access to them. Our objective is well determined and has been carried out since 2001. The needs in our neighborhood are great and we are one of the few resources available to
our low-income families. We are attracting the
neighborhood people, especially the children, as well
as the new immigrants who come to our ESL classes.
- Our regular programming includes:
*After-School Sessions including homework help, tutoring
and use of our Computer Lab
*Summer recreation program which includes opportunity
for youth employment
*ESL (English as a Second Language)
*Prayer Group which meets twice/month
*Advent and Lenten Prayer Programs
*Police/Clergy Mentoring Program
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have remained closed
since midMarch, 2020. Our hope is to reopen as soon as possible
during the coming academic year.
