About Tekton Ministries

Tekton Ministries seeks to work in the spirit of St. Joseph. “Tekton,” or “τεκτον” in Biblical Greek, means worker or craftsman, and is the title given to St. Joseph as his profession. St. Joseph, our patron and namesake; the silent, hard-working step father who spent his life close to Jesus and Mary, gives us an example which we seek to emulate in the way we live and the way we do ministry.

We believe in witnessing to the richness of our Catholic faith. We draw strength from the Sacraments and the Magisterium, and we incorporate the essence of our faith into our work by way of daily Mass, Adoration, Confession, Scripture, and Prayer.

Ann

Retreat & Pilgrimage Leader

Ann was born in a village 2 miles from Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina (place of alleged Marian apparitions since 1981) her family moved to the USA when she was 2 years old.  In the summer of 1981, she returned to her homeland and was a witness to the beginning days and months of Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje, which profoundly changed her life.  In 1999, after many years of working in the field of Social Work, she was called by the Lord into ministry: leading pilgrimages to Medjugorje and other Catholic sites; interpreting for Medjugorje visionaries and priests throughout the United States and beyond; working extensively with Fr. Zlatko Sudac (a Croatian priest with the stigmata) at Bethany Retreat House in Croatia; sharing her testimony and speaking on matters of faith and spirituality at retreats and conferences throughout the USA.
