"Let no one have contempt for your youth, but set an example for those who believe, in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity." (1 Tm 4:12)
The mission of the Cristeros Hispanic Youth Group is to show Jesus to the youth, so that they can develop a relationship with God through prayer, charity, and be disciples of Jesus. Youth are encouraged to learn, participate, and interact with their peers in a way that is relevant to their young age.
The Cristeros meet once a week to learn more about the faith and also attend other social events such as charity fundraisers, sports days, and retreats.
Meeting time is 7 p.m. in the Parish Hall.

Dear St. Anne,
As we move forward with the planning and execution of the WYD pilgrimage to Panama, I want to let you know about the amazing things that have taken place. What started out as the planning of a small local pilgrimage is now becoming a national pilgrimage, with the Los Angeles and Phoenix chapters of the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders (C.A.L.L.) leading the way. As a wonderful addition, the Los Angeles Young C.A.L.L. Professionals (YCP) will also be joining us in Panama City from January 21 – 28, 2019. Anyone over the age of 14+ is welcome and there is no upper age limit, assuming you are cleared by your physician to attend. Minors must travel with a parent.
As a result of all of this, registration forms will be available online in the next 2 weeks and these forms will need to be sent to C.A.L.L. offices in Los Angeles. If it is not convenient for you to mail these out, I will be happy to continue receiving registrations at my office in Mesa. Registrations require a non-refundable $800 deposit which will be applied to your overall trip fees. We will continue accepting these until there are no more available spaces which are limited to 60. If anyone waits too long, pricing is subject to change due to increasing flight costs as the date approaches.
I’ve attached all necessary forms. The medical release form is not necessary for the initial registration, but please keep in mind that if your physician does not clear you, your deposit is not refundable. All pilgrims will be required to have a physical exam prior to departing for Panama.
If you have any questions, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please make checks payable to Catholic Association of Latino Leaders and applications should be mailed to:

An Invitation for the Youth - Help Needed for 'Live Stations of the Cross' @ the Lenten Experience (Jr. High & High School)
Greetings, Parents! We are in need of 15 youth (Jr High & High School) to participate in the Live Stations of the Cross at this year’s Lenten Experience, which will be Wednesday, February 7th. For our youth, this is a great opportunity for a deeper understanding of the sacrifice love of Christ, through the visual senses. Please join us!
If you are interested in having your youth participate, please email Katrina Winn at Katrina.Winn@gmail.com. Our first practice will be on Tuesday, January 23rd @ 6:00pm in the St. Anne courtyard.
Thank you and God bless,
"Making the Way of the Cross, we, the followers of Jesus, must declare once more our discipleship: weeping like Peter for sins committed; opening our hearts to faith in Jesus the suffering Messiah, like the Good Thief; remaining there at the foot of the Cross of Christ like the Mother and the Disciple, and there with them receiving the Word which redeems, the Blood which purifies, the Spirit which gives life."

FOR YOUNG MEN - because we believe that ALL Catholic men need to take their rightful place in their family, school, Church, and community as a man of God. This elevating day will bring authentic speakers, which include Jason Evert, Fr. John Muir, Franciscan Friar of the Holy Spirit - Fr. Benedict Mary, FHS, Fr. Fernando Camou, and Ryan Ayala. Their powerful talks will help strengthen, enrich, and support your life of faith. You can also expect the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, break-out sessions, video, lunch, snacks, and an outdoor activity.
In our day, there’s widespread doubt and confusion surrounding God. Can I know Him? Can I trust Him? Without a connection to God, it’s hard to live without fears and anxieties: Who am I? What’s my purpose? Where am I going?
The good news is that there are real ways to know our meaning in God, to never feel alone, and to live with purpose. Don’t miss out on this opportunity of grace and joy!!
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” - Jer. 17:8
