Letters From Saint Ann Shrine

Thank You 2024

Dear Friends of Saint Ann Shrine,

On behalf of Father Roger Bourgeois, Chaplain of Saint Ann Shrine, the Saint Ann Shrine Staff, and the Community of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament, I would like to sincerely thank you for your continued thoughts, prayers, and generous support of Saint Ann Shrine and the Blessed Sacrament! Please know we are so very grateful and appreciative for your generosity and kindness in supporting our mission! You are truly a Eucharistic person and we are thankful for all you do for us! Your sincere generosity and kindness ensure the long-term sustainability of Saint Ann Shrine, the care of Blessed Sacrament Community, and our mission work!

I have had the pleasure of being a member of the staff here for the past 7 ½ years. I really enjoy hearing about your families, your faith, and even what sports teams you may follow! I am humbled when you ask about my family as well. But when you share with me your memories of how your faith came to be, including your devotion to Good Saint Ann, I am inspired and enjoy hearing how we share certain bonds that life has to offer. All of our life paths have different twists and turns, but they all come back to our faith being at the center of our lives. Your love and devotion for Saint Ann and the Blessed Sacrament are so evident when I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with you. I can hear it in the tone of your voice. It’s truly amazing and I only wish I could connect with more of you! Please feel free to share your story of devotion with me by calling me at 440-449-2700 or sgongos@blessedsacrament.com.

Because of you and your generous support, we are able to:

  • Administer to Saint Ann Shrine, including celebrating Mass and hosting events that live out our spirituality;
  • Have a Chaplain on staff;
  • Support the members of the Blessed Sacrament in their mission work and care for those in retirement;
  • Support international priests who are assisting our Eucharistic presence in the United States at our parishes.

We pray that your faith remains strong as Good Saint Ann intercedes for our petitions as we set our prayers before her. May Saint Ann continue to protect you and your families!

Should you ever be in the Cleveland area, please stop by to celebrate Mass with us! It would be wonderful to put a face to your name and voice! We celebrate Mass Monday-Friday at 11:30 AM (except Holy Days) but I encourage you to call ahead. We celebrate the Triduum of Saint Ann and Saint Joachim’s Feast July 24-26 in Cleveland and New York City. Please join us if you are able!

Saying “Thank You” is never sufficient enough. Please know of the utmost appreciation I, our staff, and the Blessed Sacrament Community have for all you do for us. You are indeed the inspiration to our work.

Blessings for health and happiness in 2024!

 

In the Spirit of Good Saint Ann,

 

Scott R. Gongos

Director of Mission Advancement
