Parish Council


 Ann Sass Parish Council Chairperson
My husband Bernard and I have been members of the parish for 40 years, joining after moving to the area from Michigan.  We have 3 grown children plus 5 grandchildren.  When I retired from Rochester General Hospital I had time to volunteer and decided what a better place to give my time than my own parish.  Serving on the Pastoral Council has allowed me the opportunity to meet many new people and to see what a wonderful faith community we have.  Hopefully my involvement will add something to our parish. 
Anne Hudson – Vice Chairperson

Anne and her husband of 45 years, Rick have lived in Sodus over 35 years and raised 3 sons there.  They’ve volunteered with school, PTA, fire departments and the past several years the Sodus Christmas Sharing program.  Anne also helps with Martha Ministy, Epiphany’s friendship luncheons and serving at masses as lector, usher, and communion minister.  Anne likes crafts and reading, especially mysteries.

I have been a parishoner at St. Max since 2008. My wife, Holly, and I live in Marion with our daughter. Another child is due in March 2016! We have appreciated the support and love from many fellow parishoners as our family grows. I have enjoyed singing in the Parish choir and look forward to finding new ways to serve through Parish Council. We most often attend mass either Saturday evening or at 10:30 on Sunday.
