- Description of Pictures: Including Covid-19 sign. I had no idea they were open during the week during this time -- mass was cancelled but private prayer is fine. I guess Catholics feel they have to go to church for much of their observance.

- Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
- Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

- Description of Subject Matter: About Saint Ann's Church
Saint Ann’s Church is the oldest Catholic parish in the part of Washington, D.C., which lies west of Rock Creek Park and north of Georgetown. The present-day Church is the third on the site, and is a larger version of a church, designed by the same architect, that is the cathedral for the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
The origins of the Parish go back to the middle of the 19th century. In 1847 Georgetown College purchased a farm and a house on present-day Wisconsin Avenue, which were used as a place for recreation and a retreat house. During the Civil War, Tenleytown became the site of one of the strongest forts that protected the nation’s capital and was a place for training and encampment. Local Catholics asked the Jesuits at Georgetown College to establish a Sunday mission church; a small wooden church was opened in 1867, across from the juncture of Wisconsin Avenue and Grant Road.
A second parish church, Neo Classic Style, stone structure, was completed in 1903 and is located at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Yuma Street N.W.
Construction of the current church began in 1946. The church was dedicated in 1948, with a dedicatory sermon by the Most Reverend Patrick A. O’Boyle the new, and first, Archbishop of Washington.
