A beautyful church when I lived in Worcester. It was at corner of Gage street and Eastern Ave, at Mulvehill Square. It's now gone making room for the Sacred Heart Academy parking lot.

When I was very young, my Mom and I used to take my Grandmother to St. Ann's Church frequently. It was a lovely church and my Grandmother loved it so. Sorry to hear it is now gone.

Lived on Gage Street directly across from the front of the church. Sacred Heart Academy the best school I attended. The sisters approach was awesome. You will learn whether you like it or not. I rely on my grammar school education every day. They were great teachers. We learned first and had fun doing it. The one thing they did not teach me was how to go to heaven. They never shared the good news. Did they know the good news? With a very heavy heart, love and respect to the best teachers I ever had - I don't think so.Do you know the good news? It's how to go to heaven. The Gospel (The Good News) The apostle Paul says that death is gain. We know God is Holy. Jesus said in Matthew 5:48,”He is perfectly Holy.” We need to admit we’re sinners. Romans 3:23 says, ”We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” What did God do to solve the problem of sin? Romans 5:8 says, “God demonstrated His love in dying on the cross to pay sin’s penalty.” 1Peter 3:18 says that Christ died for sins once for all. And Paul also writes in Corinthians 15:4, “Jesus rose from the grave and is alive today.” What must our response be to this Good News? The answer is in Acts 17:30: “Will you repent and believe in Christ as your Lord and Savior or will you remain under his wrath?” We must repent, which means to turn away from our sins and turn to Jesus Christ who paid for your sins, and my sins, the perfect sacrifice on the cross. So when we repent and believe in Jesus as our and Savior, according to 2 Corinthians 5:21 we receive His righteous because of Jesus who knew no sin. This is GRACE. GRACE is undeserved favor. We gain forgiveness of our sins and eternal life in heaven with Jesus. Thus only through the power of the Gospel, death is gain.
