St. Anne's Catholic Church - Houston, Texas
"The Catholic Community of St. Anne, aspire to follow the example of Jesus Christ. They foster holiness by encouraging each other on our journey of faith. They seek the Kingdom of God as a Eucharistic community. They witness the presence of the living Christ by our profound hospitality, respect and love for all.
Fr. O’Rourke, who was named pastor in 1932, began to work on plans a new building with the Houston architects Maurice and Charles Sullivan. Fr. O’Rourke envisioned a church that would enshrine for the faithful their doctrinal, devotional, and historical heritage. He planned an edifice that would be an expression of Catholic faith and which would impress that faith visually upon all whom entered to worship and pray.
The type of architecture chosen was the style used in the Spanish missions of the southwest. Fr. O’Rourke, a teacher and eminent historian, was eager for the parishioners of future years to be conscious of the work of the missionaries who planted the seeds of faith in Texas.
This Spanish-style building, serving as the church until the completion of the present church in 1940, has since been remodeled to provide classrooms and a computer center for St. Anne School
The mission of St. Anne Catholic School is to develop each student academically, spiritually, culturally, and physically in a Catholic environment."
