Encounter

St. Ann's is a community of people who have encountered Jesus Christ in a powerful and life-changing way. We're also a place for those who haven’t encountered Jesus yet and are curious or have questions. We want to invite every person in Gulf Breeze and Pensacola Beach to a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ, for the first or thousandth time.

Weekend Masses

"Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." | St. Jerome

Every time Jesus encounters people in a profound way, He invites them to follow Him, to become His disciple. A disciple is one who has made an intentional choice to follow Jesus and grow to live more and more like Him. At Little Flower we encourage every member to join other Christians in building community, sharing faith, and ultimately growing in their discipleship.

Adoration

"Amen, I say to you, whatever you ddi for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me." | Matthew 25:40

We also offer Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 7-8am Mon-Fri, before each of the weekday Masses with Morning Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours beginning at 7:45am. If you haven't ever prayed Morning Prayer, you can pick up the "Shorter Christian Prayer" book and join in or listen to this beautiful prayer silently. After Mass is the option to join in a communal praying of the Rosary.

Each Tuesday, the St. Ann chapel is open from 9am-9pm for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. This is a wonderful opportunity to pray silently before our Lord for comfort, strength, peace and direction and to present Him with your needs and intentions. Come experience the peace of God's presence in the midst of a busy world. 

All are invited to stop in the chapel at anytime, but this extended time of Adoration is made possible by individuals who have signed up to remain in prayer in the chapel for a specific hour each Tuesday. If you would like to sign up to dedicate an hour of time each Tuesday, please contact Jody Crowley at (850) 485-0533.

God's Mercy

"Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." | St. Jerome

The Sacrament of Penance (commonly called Confession or the Sacrament of Reconciliation), is one of the seven sacraments recognized by the Catholic Church. Catholics believe that all of the sacraments were instituted by Jesus Christ himself. In scripture we see Jesus give his apostles the authority to forgive sins in the Gospel of John: “Receive the Holy Spirit. For those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven; for those whose sins you retain, they are retained.” (John 20: 22-23) Sin harms our relationship with God and damages our communion with the Church, Christ's Body. Conversion of heart is the beginning of our journey back to God. This return to the Lord and his embrace is manifested in the Sacrament of Reconciliation - a wonderful experience of God's mercy and love for each of us!
