Celebrating 50 Years of Faith

Let's Get Social...

    

  Be good to yourself and join us for an evening of confession at ALL Catholic parishes on
Wednesday, March 4 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Why Confession?
Confession is an opportunity to feel the presence of God’s love and mercy.  It is an occasion to feel a graced moment on our spiritual journey.
Confession is an opening to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ.  After we have confessed our sins, received guidance and penance from the priest, we receive a blessing and absolution.   In that blessing we are reminded that our sins are forgiven. “How good it feels to come back to him when we are lost” Pope Francis tells us.  We are reminded of how much God loves us and we are challenged to do our best to avoid sin and live in God’s love.

In the words of Pope Francis, “the joy of God is the joy of forgiveness.”  Often Catholics will describe incredible feelings of peace, joy, relief and love as Jesus offers his mercy and welcomes them back.

What is going to be our legacy? In their pastoral letter, Stewardship: A Disciple's Response, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops reminds us that a good disciple "receives God's gifts gratefully, cultivates them responsibly, shares them in justice and love with all, and returns them with increase to the Lord."   As a parish, we are asked to provide information to families and individuals to help you practice responsible stewardship.  

We are excited to announce the launch of a new website to provide educational resources to help you create and update your personal estate plan.  For more information and resources please click here.

We are a Roman Catholic family of believers committed to following Jesus Christ 
by welcoming, celebrating, caring, evangelizing and growing in His image.

Welcome to our parish website. Saint Anselm Parish is a diverse community of people with all types of experiences and gifts. We are called to grow in deepening our relationship with God and our community. We hope that this website is a way for all to come to know our parish and how to connect in meaningful ways: celebrating, caring, and sharing our gifts. Welcome!
