The mission of the Ministry of Care is to bring Jesus in the holy Eucharist to our parishioners who are: homebound, hospitalized, in care or nursing facilities, hospice, or in jails or prisons.
We serve parishioners who are unable to attend holy Mass on Sunday because of illness, age or disability. The service may be for an extended period of time or short-term. Some of the various environments in which the Ministry of Care provides service include hospitals, care homes, nursing homes, hospice, and prisons.
We have twelve hours of training, divided into three, four-hour sessions. These sessions include instruction on the holy Eucharist, Communion service, basic skills for home and hospital visits, confidentiality, etc.
In addition to the classroom instruction, you'll go on visits with a mentor until you're comfortable with serving on your own.
Called to Protect
Everyone who serves in any ministry in the Diocese of Phoenix must attend a Called to Protect class. These are abuse prevention educational classes for the protection of minors. The initial session must be taken in a classroom. After your initial training you can re-certify for this requirement online.
If you'd like to learn more about the Ministry of Care, or become involved, please contact Frances August at (480) 632-0429, or send a message via My St. Anne.

Ministry of Care invites you to join us. If you are interested in taking the Holy Eucharist to those home bound or to our Catholic brothers and sisters at the hospital, please come to the table in the narthex on the weekend of August 19th and 20th after any of the masses.
New training classes are scheduled for September 16 and 23 from 8am-1pm in the Juan Diego Chapel.
Thank you to all who have waited so patiently for Matthew Kelly’s Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose here at St. Anne on Sunday, May 28th at 4pm. We know that it will be an amazing event!
We expect over 1200 people to be at St. Anne on Sunday! The parking lot will fill very quickly, so if you are familiar with the area, as a courtesy to our guests, please consider parking off campus. You can legally park on Washington St. (by John Allen Park), on Burk St. in the designated parking areas, at the St. Anne Annex at Cottonwood and Elliot and in Morning Ridge, the neighborhood just south of the parish. Please do not park in the neighborhoods east of the parish – those are privately maintained streets. There will be a drop off area in front of the CGS building for anyone wishing to drop off passengers while the driver parks off campus.
If you purchased tickets for the January 28th event, your original ticket or your online order confirmation may be used for entry on this rescheduled date. Since the event is sold out, there are no additional tickets available at this time.
Doors will open at 3pm and we do encourage you to arrive by 3:30pm – especially if you have “will call” tickets. The Knights of Columbus will have food available for sale at the breaks, so please plan to remain on campus for the entire event. You are also welcome to bring snacks with you.
The usual 5pm Mass will move to 9pm on Sunday night to accommodate this event.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday!
