PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL
Members: Eric Ertzner, Chair, Karl Stafflinger, Vice Chair, Beverly Freed, George Minson, Robert Flores, Pat Ewen, Rachael Watson, Tom Malone
In Christian worship the term liturgy refers to the activity of all who worship, all of us doing a work for the common good in our relationship with God.
This committee plans and evaluates the goals of parish worship by providing resources and training to Extraordinary Ministers, Lectors, Altar Servers, Ushers, Greeters and Altar and Arts (environment).
JUSTICE & PEACE COMMITTEE

It supports social ministry groups such as Tri-Cities Crisis Pregnancy Center, CARES shelter and CCHASM (Chesterfield, Colonial Heights Alliance of Social Ministry). The food pantry, "Our Daily Bread", is operated by St. Ann volunteers along with several other area churches. It is stocked by generous contributions from parishioners and donations from area businesses such as Food Lion.
The Finance Council has been established according to the new code of Canon Law. Its mission is to assist the Pastor in the administration of the financial resources of the parish.

The Facilities Ministry goal is to provide "hands on" expertise and to take care of our buildings and grounds. The committee strives to run these services with proficiency and economy in mind.
The objective of this committee is to participate in the spirit of hospitality and oneness as a parish family in the form of social events and welcoming activities. Some of these activities include weekly hospitality (Sunday mornings), welcoming new parishioners, nursery, the annual parish picnic, Thanksgiving and Ethnic dinners.
"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!" Saint Ann Choir is always looking for more singers, cantors and more musicians who are willing to share their talent at liturgical celebrations. Our choir is directed by Marie Ascenza. Choir practice is held on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 in the Worship Center.
This ministry seeks to instill in the members of St. Ann Parish a willing spirit of proportionate and sacrificial giving from their treasury of time, talent, and money as a true response to discipleship. It assists individuals and groups in being well equipped for the services they provide to the community and works with other ministries to ensure that resources are used wisely. It develops and organizes stewardship campaigns for the parish.
