  Year of Mercy 
The works of mercy are scripture based charitable actions by which we come to the aid of our neighbors in their spiritual and bodily necessities - Catechism of the Catholic Church.  Each month during the Year of Mercy, Saint Anselm Parish focuses on a Spiritual or Corporal Work of Mercy.  
January: Correct the sinner, Be patient with those in error ~ Always we seeking wisdom ourselves, we advise someone who is struggling to understand their misbehavior.  While we attempt to correct those in error, we also refrain from judgment. As Pope Francis says: "Who am I to judge?" We love our enemies and are good to those who persecute us.  
January 11, 2016 - Small groups begin at the parish and in homes on "Having Mercy" contact Jean Fitzgerald ( for free downloadable online resources.

Let's Get Social...





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!
