Suspension of Public Masses and Events
Archbishop Robert J. Carlson has suspended all public Masses immediately. This decision from Archbishop Carlson follows many conversations with his advisory team, and health and government officials. Pending further updates on the spread of COVID-19, parishes within the Archdiocese of St. Louis have preliminary plans to resume Masses beginning April 6; however, the Archbishop will re-evaluate at a later date.
The Archdiocese of St. Louis will continue to support the needs of the greater St. Louis community through its parishes and charities. The Archdiocese understands the economic impact that this emergency is having on our community as a whole. However, in times like this, it is even more urgent for us to pray for and assist our brothers and sisters who are in the most need. We encourage you to consider supporting our parishes through online giving, mail-in or drop-off donations, and also organizations that are responding to this crisis, such as Catholic Charities of St. Louis , The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of St. Louis and the Annual Catholic Appeal.

What does this mean at St. Ann?
There are no scheduled Masses at St. Ann until 4/6 at the earliest. The church will be open at the time of each scheduled Mass and through out the day for private prayer.
What should I do on Sunday?
Pray at home. Catholic are still obligated to keep holy the Sabbath even when the Archbishop has dispensed us from the obligation to attend Holy Mass. Consider watching Mass on TV or online. There are so many resources online for living as a Catholic. We will try to offer some digital celebrations and options as a parish so we can also stay connected locally. More updates to follow.
What has been canceled?
Masses, Perpetual Help Devotions, Stations of the Cross, Poor Man’s Supper, and Life in the Spirit Seminar, choir practice, and all other parish events.
What has not be canceled?
Confessions will continue as scheduled or by appointment. The church will be open from 7:30AM- 7PM daily for personal prayer.
Why would you have a fish fry and no Mass?
Because we can not offer drive through Mass!
What about receiving Communion at home or church?
The Archbishop has said there will be no Communion services and Communion will only be brought to the seriously ill.
What about the sick?
The Sacrament of the sick will be offered to all who need it. The Archbishop has asked that anointing of one suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19 be done in consultation with the Archdiocesan Office of Worship.
Suspension of in-person classes at St. Ann Catholic School and Temporary Closure of St. Ann Early Childhood Center and Extra-curricular Activities
As many of you may have heard, Archbishop Robert Carlson announced, last night, that all schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis will close beginning Wednesday, March 18th . The Archbishop made this decision in cooperation with local and state government and health officials. Archbishop Carlson says the health and safety of the people of the Archdiocese is a priority and sees this decision as the best path forward to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our area.
Our current Spring Break may help ease the burden of this closure timeline but we are making preparations for the imminent extended closure.
We recognize the challenges ahead for our school community following this decision.
The biggest challenge is managing continued education/instruction in a remote manner through an extended and indefinite closure timeline. Planning to miss a week of school is different than planning to miss 2 weeks or 8 weeks and we’ll be trying to cover as many anticipated contingencies as we can within reason. As I stated in a previous email, this is an unprecedented circumstance and we’ll be working with the resources we have, the technological infrastructure we have, and support and guidance from the Archdiocese to navigate this challenge. Look out for more information on how to push ahead in the school’s curriculum at home in the coming days. There are a number of options being considered.
For our families that depend on our schools for food, assistance can be found through St. Vincent de Paul of St. Louis, (314) 881-6000 and Catholic Charities of St. Louis (314)367-5500.
All extracurricular activities our school are postponed/canceled including athletics.
We continue to work with the Archdiocese of St. Louis and state and local health officials to ensure the safety of our school population. We are in this together and remind you that your role as parents is the most critical component in the strategy of preventing the spread of this illness.
If a family member is symptomatic of the COVID-19 coronavirus, please contact the St. Louis County Department of Health Hotline at 314-615-2660 . Officials operating the hotline will give you information on testing and the need to self-quarantine.
If you or a close relative plans to travel, you are advised to check the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for travel guidelines and the latest updates on areas with confirmed cases of COVID-19. If you are traveling to an area where the virus is present or are unsure whether or not it is present at your travel destination, please contact the St. Louis County Department of Health Hotline at (314) 615-2660 for further instruction.
Be aware of how COVID-19 spreads and what you can do to prevent it. That information is similar to the procedures we use in preventing influenza.
State and health officials have banned gatherings of 50 or more people.
Prayer is of the upmost importance. Please continue to pray the prayer given to us by the USCCB. You can find the prayer posted at archstl.org/coronavirus.
Rooted deeply in the teachings of the Catholic Church and the life of our neighborhood, we at St. Ann in Normandy minister to our community which is richly diverse in age, culture, economics, education and faith traditions.
As servants and disciples, together we:
Welcome and worship; celebrate and socialize serve and support.
We do this as a Eucharistic people, called by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
St. Ann Catholic School is a diverse Christian community in Normandy, MO devoted to providing a comprehensive curriculum and a learning environment that encourages students to reach their full potential.
Saint Ann Early Childhood Center is an accredited preschool serving children 2 1/2 -5 years of age and their families. We offer high-quality education in a loving Catholic setting.
St. Ann Catholic Church is a Mid-Century modern masterpiece. It was featured in Time Magazine, Popular Science, The Encyclopedia Britannica, as well as several liturgical magazines.
It all started with the kindness of a woman, who like the widow in the gospel, was so incredibly generous with what God had given to her. In 1854, the widow Anne Lucas-Hunt donated the land along with a monetary donation to the Jesuit Order “to establish a church and see to the education of the children” in her beloved Normandy, Missouri. The Jesuits then tasked Fr. Peter DeSmet with the project of establishing St. Ann church. In him we know a parish founded with a missionary spirit. St. Ann was his ‘home’ when his feet were not on the road proclaiming the good news to the Native American Indians. Our first pastor, Fr. Adrian Van Hulst, would make the journey from the Jesuit provincial house at the corner of Lindell Boulevard and Grand Avenue by horse and carriage. It was said that he was so punctual that farmers could set their watches by his approach. In him, we see the virtue of a steadfast, faithful presence.
Generosity, missionary spirit and steadfast presence – these are the foundational gifts at the heart of this parish community. And these are the lived virtues that continue to guide the community we call St. Ann parish. My hope is these web pages will give you a glimpse into this vibrant, welcoming parish and the people who have been “Living Faith Since 1856…”
