Welcome from the Pastors
As we have entered a new millennium in the life of the Church and the world, members of the body of Christ are called upon to share in the role of bringing the “face of Jesus Christ” to the world by their active participation in prayer and good works. May this website be a viewpoint into the life of St. Ann’s Parish so that you may find a way to contribute to not only your own personal salvation but help bring others to recognizing their salvation in Jesus Christ.
St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church is a community of approximately 1200 families in Abbotsford, British Columbia. The Parish family is made up of over 50 nationalities, and they are excited to live out their Catholic faith with enthusiasm and love for their neighbours.
The parish belongs to the Archdiocese of Vancouver and originally marked its boundaries as follows: to the north, by the Fraser River; to the south, by the Canada-USA border; to the east, by the Vedder Canal; and to the west by Mt. Lehman Road. It is comprised of a total of two hundred square miles of British Columbia’s scenic beauty.
St. Ann’s is a very active parish community. With activities for all ages, there is something for everyone. Browse this site including the “Parish Life” section and “Calendar” to see the many things that are happening throughout the year. Mass is celebrated daily and in several different languages. Please see our “Mass Times” page for more information.

Searching for Truth? Jesus Christ proclaimed that “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). The search for truth requires courage, patience and openness to overcoming our own prejudices and pre-conceived notions, so you can embrace the truth fully, whenever and wherever it is found. The late popular TV personality Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said, “It is easy to find truth; it is hard to face it, and harder still to follow it.”
