The Shrine of Saint Anne for Mothers is the home of the Parish of St. Anne. It is a place of pilgrimage and worship where we promote the sanctity of life by honoring and praying for our mothers, grandmothers and godmothers. We are building the kingdom of God, rejoicing in His gift of motherhood.
We share our pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Murasso Ph.D., Ed. D, our deacon, Carl Gerstung, administrative staff, and retired pastor in residence, Fr. Carmine Raneri with Blessed Sacrament Church in Waterbury. We also have two retired permanent deacons, Gaspard LeBlanc and Francis Bandiera.
The Shrine of St. Anne is evolving from the French Canadian ethnic parish of greater Waterbury into a Shrine. Our parish currently consists of primarily english speaking individuals and families of French Canadian ancestry. The parish has wonderful music ministry with an excellent choir and other musicians that truly enhance the Liturgy.
The Shrine has one Sunday Mass at 9:30AM and on most Sundays there are visitors and former parishioners that have relocated out of the Waterbury area. Although we are evolving into a National Shrine, our parish is vibrant and active. We are currently restoring the church as well as making necessary improvements to the church hall. We would enjoy having you visit and consider becoming a parishioner.
We are a parish in the Archdiocese of Hartford, CT and follow the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People instituted by the US Catholic Bishops.
