We are committed to nourishing spiritual needs and to responding with our gifts to Jesus’ call to stewardship both locally and in our world. St. Ann’s Parish was founded in 1886 in Saxon, Wisconsin, where a log school house served as the home to a founding congregation. In 1908 the current church was constructed to house a growing membership, at the highest location in the Town of Saxon, where it stands today. The church’s location is a key to its welcoming, soaring bell tower, inviting all to join who may be passing through or looking for a church home. The 1950’s ranch style home, which stands next to the church, served as the Rectory and home for many priests through the years, until the parish was clustered together with other parishes. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carandolet then took up residence to provide service to the parish and local community. The former Rectory/Convent has now become the Parish Office and newly refurbished Parish Activity Center. The new Activity Center serves as a meeting place for an active St. Ann’s Service Club, the Catholic Christian Doctrine (CCD) Center for the youth of our parish, and the Parish Religious Library. The pride in maintaining the 100 year old church building continues with the restoration of the beautiful stained glass windows, and the continuation of upgrading the church structure itself. Recently St. Ann’s parishioners distinguished themselves by reaching 100% of its monetary goal for the Superior Diocese in its “Faith in Our Future” Campaign; to provide funding for support of our local parish needs, an endowment fund for medical expenses of retired priests, and the education of seminarians. St. Ann’s Service Club sponsors an Annual Fall Festival each September. Funds raised are used to benefit local community groups and individuals in need of assistance. Through the generosity of local businesses, parish members, and Fall Festival attendees, we are able to donate to several charities; locally, regionally, and around the world. St. Ann’s Parish holds a monthly Family Day Mass, with the youth involved in the ministries of the Mass. A coffee social brunch is also served once per month, usually following the Family Day Mass on the last Sunday of each month. We invite you to join us for Sunday morning Mass at 8:45 a.m. All are welcome, in this place; St. Ann’s Parish, Saxon, Wisconsin.
