ST ANN TEEN OF THE YEAR
The Teen of the Year award is selected by our Pastor Fr. Ray Cadran, the Youth Ministry Staff, and volunteers. The selected teen embodies the reconciling and missionary heart of the La Salettes. They are an active participant in not only the St. Ann Youth Ministry program, but also in other St. Ann Ministries. Congratulations Madison B.
At the end of every school year, the Women’s Council honors high school graduates from our parish with a Recognition Award and a $1,000 monetary gift. Thanks to the hard work of the Council at both the Apple Annie and Garage Sale fundraisers, donations to this award, our church and other deserving causes are possible.
