On the weekend of July 26th and 27th, the Saint Anne Parish community will celebrate our annual summer festival. We invite you to join and help support our fun-filled family celebration, which begins Saturday with an outdoor Mass at 8:00 a.m. The festival will have continuous live entertainment, varieties of delicious food, games, and lots of business booth giveaways all day and will conclude with a raffle drawing on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. See the weekly bulletin and the festival schedule for more details.
Festival Raffle Tickets
The festival raffle tickets have been mailed out to all families in our parish database. We encourage you to either buy or sell them to others. You may turn in your payments and ticket stubs at the parish office, or you may drop them in the Sunday collection basket in an envelope marked “Festival.”
If you do not receive any tickets, you can pick them up in the parish office. Please be generous because the raffle tickets make up the largest part of the festival’s fund raising. We have exciting prizes: 1st prize is $2,500; 2nd prize is a week of resort accommodations; 3rd prize is a 55-inch TV; and 4th prize is $250.
Booth Sponsors & Volunteers
The parish festival needs booth sponsors. You may become a regular booth sponsor with a donation of $100 or more. If your business would like to sponsor a business booth for a donation of $400, you may display your business's name prominently in the booth during the entire festival. Business booths are going quickly, so get yours as soon as possible. The Festival Committee needs volunteers for game booths, food booths, set up, teardown, and the recycling team.
For Logan High School students, it's a great way to get community service points. Volunteer sign-up sheets are in the front of the church and on the church patio after Mass. You can also sign up at the rectory or contact one of the festival committee members listed below.
Festival Entertainment: Red Carpet Hollywood Style Fashion Show

Roman Missal, Third Edition
Since the end of Vatican II, bishops and theologians have been looking at the Latin texts of the Roman Missal and re-translating them to conform more closely to it’s origins. After nearly fifty years of research, debate, and prayer the Vatican has approved the Third Translation of the Roman Missal. These changes took effect the first week of advent (November 27, 2011). The structure of the mass remains unchanged in the new edition of the Roman Missal. However, almost every prayer in the Mass has been re-translated from Latin to English; some prayers now recited by memory will need to be relearned. For more information, see:
