Welcoming all to St. Ann Catholic Community.

St. Ann is a Roman Catholic Community located in Fremont, Ohio at 1021 West State Street. We are a warm and welcoming parish family of approximately 1689 members representing 554 households. As Sandusky County's first Catholic Church, St. Ann originally began as an Irish parish. Today, St. Ann has emerged as a diverse community with many nationalities represented at our Lord's Day Liturgies. We are members of the Bishop Hoffman School System which is a collaborative effort to ensure pre-k through 12th grade Catholic education for this area. At the core of St. Ann is the involvement of its members in the life of the parish community. There are many opportunities for each member to share their gifts and talents with the larger parish community. St. Ann Catholic Community is continually called to reverence its past, live out its present, and thoughtfully plan for its future. Thank you for visiting with us!

We welcome everyone and turn away no one in our efforts to provide and receive support and guidance ~ be it emotional, spiritual or material. St. Ann's is a community where hospitality and fellowship identify us as faithful disciples of the Lord.

March 19-21st - FIRE IT UP! Fremont area Catholic Mission
What is FIRE IT UP? The three Catholic parishes of Fremont- Sacred Heart, St. Joseph, and St. Ann - are pleased to offer our first Annual Tri-Parish Mission. It is the desire of our pastors that we pray together, work together, and play together to deepen our own personal relationship with Christ and each other. This mission offers that opportunity- to unite, open our hearts to be transformed by His love, and leave on a mission to spread that love to others. You do not want to miss this opportunity!
Bishop Daniel Thomas asks for continued prayers from you, the faithful of the Diocese of Toledo, as he fulfills his duties as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Cleveland, while maintaining his role as Bishop of Toledo. He also asks for your understanding and patience as scheduling changes of events will be necessary. Please pray that a new Bishop will be assigned to the Diocese of Cleveland in the near future.
