Saint Anne’s MOMs continue their annual tradition of selling mums at Spirit Day to support the parish. These gorgeous blossoms are the perfect way to decorate an autumn garden and all are encouraged to show their support by buying one, or maybe two, beautiful plants at the MOMs booth. The hardy 9-inch mums come in a variety of beautiful colors and arrive fresh from the Stakey Nursery in Suffolk County.

“The MOMs look forward to supporting Spirit Day and the parish with our plant sale,” said President Amy Doggendorf. “Our booth not only sells mums, but also is an opportunity for new families to meet mothers of young children and find out more about our MOMs group.”

In addition to collecting food and necessary items for various Loaves and Fishes initiatives throughout the year, the congregation also sponsors families in Wyandanch for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Faith & Friendship group encourages members to pray together and coordinates the Church Discovery program, where mothers and young children explore the church once a month.
