St. Ann Melkite Catholic Church is home to over 500 families. Our founding fathers originated from Aleppo, Syria and over the years our Middle Eastern heritage and culture has been kept alive through our strong devoted community.
From its beginning in Paterson where liturgies were celebrated by the Rev. Cyril Anid first in private homes and then in borrowed space from surrounding churches and finally in our own church on Marshall Street in Paterson to our present church in Woodland Park, NJ we have grown into a vibrant part of our diocese.
Within the pages of this site you will find the essence of the Melkite people and the pride we hold in our hearts for our spiritual home.
THE GIVING TREE:
It’s that time of year. The season of giving. This is “The Giving Tree” that proudly stands in the entranceway of our church hall at St. Ann’s . The children of our community have decorated it with hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, and socks which will be donated to Catholic Charities and distributed to needy children. A beautiful symbol of love and generosity from our kids. God bless them all!
