Union of Catholic mothers
St Annes Union of Catholic Mothers belongs to a National Group
of women involved in 17 dioceses throughout the country. We meet weekly after 7.30pm mass on a Wednesday evening in the Parish
We share our aims of the Union of Catholic Mothers to respect catholic views and support needs in our way of Christian
life. We enjoy our prayer, social and environmental life in many varied ways throughout the year. We help and assist our members
in sickness, celebrations, family events and support our parish likewise.
Over the years we have raised funds and donated
to a diverse number of well known charities, including St. Johns Hospice, Charles Thompsons Mission, Claire House Childrens
Hospice, Breast Cancer, Street Pastors, Dementia Society, The Good Shepherd Hospice, the Heart Foundation, Young Carers and
many many more.
At present there are approximately 40 members. We are a very active group who enjoy having varied speakers
to give talks and slide shows, armchair exercise, bring and buy and bingo nights. We also enjoy meals out and theatre nights.
We are open to all ladies of any age, status and a warm welcome will always be given.

The St Vincent de Paul Society
The St Vincent de Paul Society in St Anne's currently has nine members. We meet once a fortnight in the presbytery on
a Monday evening. We currently support 16 families in the parish and we visit five local care homes. Support varies with the
needs of the families, It can be financial help, obtaining furniture and clothing. We also offer advice or in some cases we
just sit and chat. This year we we able to send a family on holiday to the SVP caravan in Talacre beach. We also sent two
children to the Ozenam outdoor persuit centre we have in Snowdonia. All these things are only made possible with the help
and support of the parishioners. Without this valuable support the team would not be able to function.
