Celebrating St. Anne's 40th anniversary
It's been a busy summer at St. Anne Church, where the Union City parish's 40th anniversary has been celebrated with a colorful festival showcasing the history of the parish, photo above, which was founded in 1973. The exuberant festival was followed two weeks later by a visit from Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ. After celebrating the 5 p.m. Mass on Aug. 10, the bishop was the guest of honor at a social event that included a performance by "Father Geoffrey's Angels," a group named for the pastor, Father Geoffrey Baraan. The entertainers performed a number from "Sister Act," which the bishop recorded on his camera phone, below.
