About St Ann's Outreach



Every Christian has a vocation or call to ministry that comes from our baptism. We share a common vocation as members of the community of faith that professes Jesus Christ as Lord.


Each of us has a unique way of living that common Christian Vocation. How we live out vocation is a result of our particular configuration of strengths and weaknesses, talents and limitations.


What God asks is simple, we are to live to Gospel in our daily life, to be faithful witnesses of God’s love and to serve God’s people with generosity and compassion. It is up to us to determine how we can best do that. How can we cooperate with God’s life within us most generously, most honestly and with the greatest authenticity.
