Mass is Cancelled

We are grateful that the leaders of our country are employing every means possible to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus here in the United States. Recommendations have been put in place by the CDC and local health officials regarding social distancing and group sizes. We need to do our part in our chapels to ensure your safety.

For this reason we urge anyone who is sick, elderly, who cares for the elderly, as well as anyone who is vulnerable because of a medical condition, to remain at home while this threat lasts.

Thus, if you are sick, elderly, a caregiver, or if you have a compromised immune system, you may consider yourself dispensed from your moral obligation to attend Mass on Sunday. We will let you know of any changes to this policy.

Please follow the CDC recommendations and those of your health care provider.

Welcome

St. Ann's Chapel is located in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. The Traditional Latin Mass is offered exclusively. Sunday Mass is at 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Our church is associated with the Society of St. Pius V - an organization of traditional Catholic priests dedicated to the traditional Latin Mass and the administration of the traditional Sacraments.

The priests follow the rubrics of the Mass according to the Roman Missal (Missale Romanum 1954) prior to any of the liturgical changes implemented by the Vatican II Council. You are most welcome to browse our web site. If you are in the local area, please feel free to visit us here at our church.

Dress code

You are most welcome to come and assist at Mass. Be advised that we do enforce a dress code while on church property

According to Apostolic Tradition and out of respect for our Lord's presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament, the faithful must dress modestly while in the church and assisting at Holy Mass. Hence, please observe the following rules:

Women and girls must wear a modest dress and cover their heads with either a hat or chapel veil. Short skirts or dresses that are above the knees, revealing blouses (such as low cut, sleeveless or see-through), slacks or shorts of any length do not meet the norms of Christian modesty.

Men and boys should be wearing neat trousers, a coat, jacket or a dress sweater and tie. Jeans, shorts, open shirts, sneakers and other such casual dress are inappropriate and do not meet the standards for Mass.

Please be advised that the priest reserves the right to refuse Holy Communion to anyone, who in his prudent judgment, does not meet the requirements of the Rules for Receiving Holy Communion and Dress Code as stated above.

Little History

Our current church property was purchased in 1987. It was a former Baptist church on about four acres of land. The parishioners did extensive renovation to make it a fit place worthy of worship. We had the first Mass here on the second Sunday of October, 1987. Since then, we have increased enrolment at our school and are now pleased to have the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Our Savior Congregation of Sisters teach at St. Anne's Academy here in White Bear Lake.
