The natural elements are revered in Gloucester , from the mammoth rocks to the nearby river and out to the sea from the harbour. Highlighting what is best about the environment makes it not only beautiful, but natural and comfortable.

St. Ann's Church
I was baptized, went to CCD, received First Communion and Confirmation at St. Ann's in Gloucester. My first funerals were also here. My father went to school here as well. Viewers of "The Perfect Storm" will recognize St. Ann's as the location of the wake held for the fisherman at the end of the film. There's something very comforting about St. Ann's to me, for obvious reasons. I haven't been back often since moving from Gloucester, only for a few Midnight Masses on Christmas Eve, but this church will always be a part of me, and me part of it. Worshipers can attend Saturday Vigil during the winter months at 4pm and Sunday mass at 8am or 10am.
