Features

Hours: Daily, before dusk. Exterior view or by appointment only.

This church was created in 1934, because a group of African Americans were tired of attending Mass near a sign that read, "Colored Catholics Sit Here." Historically, St. Ann's served the blacks while St. Patrick's was predominantly white. However, the St. Ann Catholic School was the first school in North Carolina to be integrated from its inception. Another unique aspect of St. Ann Church is the beautiful collection of stained glass windows depicting the church's history.
