It’s that time again! St. Anne’s Week is coming up (July 22-29).
We will be again celebrating our patronal feast this month; St. Anne’s feast day. The week of “St. Anne’s Day,” July 26th, is filled with fun for residents and staff alike.
Each year, St. Anne’s Guest Home honors St. Anne, the mother of Mary, on her feast day since our facility is named in her honor. A few years ago, we started making the celebration a weeklong observance.
One enjoyable part of the week is having themed dress up days, in which both residents and staff participate. Some of the fun will include:
Sunday: Dress up Day – Rock ’round the Clock with a Cake Walk
Monday: Sports Day – Dance in the afternoon with Larry Wheeler
Tuesday: Hat Day – Hymn-Sing-Along with Paulla and Bingo
Weds.: Western Day
Thursday: St. Anne’s Day – Mass for St. Anne’s feast, Wear your St. Anne’s Shirt / Bingo Party
Friday: Patriotic Day – Sing-along and outing
Saturday: Pajama Day – Don’t Sleep through Mass or Reading Hour
Would you be interested in a t-shirt like this? Please let us know your size and how many you’d like. We won’t be sure on the price until we have a final count, but it should be quite inexpensive. You can actually pick what color shirt you want, too!
We hope to have them on time for our celebration of St. Anne’s Day (July 26).
We had a great time at today’s annual Pie & Cake Ice Cream Social. Thanks to all who helped make this event, which benefits our activity program, such a fun and delicious success!!!
