|The Fundamental Statements of Saint Ann Parish|
The goal of St. Ann's Parish is that each member grow in Grace through Jesus Christ, and in so doing cooperate with the Holy Spirit in giving glory to God, in experiencing the salvation of their soul, and in building up the Body of Christ.
We, the members of the Saint Ann Parish in Phoenixville, in communion with the Bishop of Rome and with the Bishop of Philadelphia, recognize and accept our Baptismal Call to grow in Grace.
Therefore we commit ourselves to:
Through the intercession of all the saints, but relying in a special way upon the prayers of Mary and of her mother Ann, we dare to ask the Lord to shepherd us beyond our wants, beyond our fears, from death into Life.
The Stewardship Way of Life is the chief instrument chosen by St. Ann Parish to help its members open themselves to the Holy Spirit - from whom alone comes the Grace to live our motto, to realize our goal, and to fulfill our mission statement.
