The Sacrament of Baptism is the beginning of our journey of faith in the Catholic Religion. This is the first of three sacraments of initiation; Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Baptism cleanses us from sin and welcomes us into the Church.
Baptism may be scheduled during the 10 am mass or after. Baptism preparation is required for first time parents. Contact Chris Sanders 816-630-5874 or email@example.com to schedule a baptism or for baptismal preparation.
The Sacrament of Confirmation may be received in one of three ways:
- If we have grown up in the Catholic faith and baptized and received Eucharist then preparation for Confirmation begins in high school. Youth are required to be practicing their faith, coming to youth group, and fulfill their confirmation preparation. Contact 816-630-7790 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- Adults who are not yet Catholic but preparing to become Catholic through the RCIA process will be prepared and receive Confirmation when they are received into the church. Contact 816-630-7790 or email@example.com for more information.
- Adult Confirmation is for those Catholics who for one reason or another missed their Confirmation sacrament. They must be practicing Catholics, 21 or older, and be prepared for the sacrament. The bishop celebrates this Sacrament in June at the Cathedral. Contact 816-630-5874 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
"It was above all on the 'first day of the week,' Sunday, the day of Jesus' resurrection that the Christians met 'to break bread'. From that time on down to our own day the celebration of the Eucharist has been continued so that today we encounter it everywhere in the Church with the same fundamental structure. It remains the center of the Churchs life.." CCC#1343
St. Ann offers opportunities to celebrate the Eucharist each week and during communion service. See Mass schedules.

Anointing of the Sick
The roots of the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick are found in the New Testament in the book of James 5:14-15: "Is there anyone sick among you? Let him send for the presbyters of the Church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord." The prayer of faith will save the sick and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, they will be forgiven.
Anyone who wishes to be Anointed contact the parish office 816-630-5874 or Pastoral Care office 816-630-5874.
