Catholics in Action is an apostolate group which depends on the secular institute Servi Trinitatis and which configures itself as Catholic Action. Or in other words: Catholics in Action is a Catholic Action group which the Church has entrusted through its hierarchy to the secular institute Servi Trinitatis. With lay apostolate and fidelity to the pope being two of Servi Trinitatis' ends, it's understandable that it would assume, in a particular way, the call of the Church to promote this lay apostolate, which is the Catholic Action, wherever it develops its own. In this manner, Servi Trinitatis contributes to laity finding their way towards sainthood in their faithfulness to the Gospel, in the development of its activity throughout the world, and with the purpose of working to win souls for Christ. At this time, the secular institute of Servi Trinitatis is developing its apostolate at the parish of St. Anne, in Gilbert, Arizona.

Today’s youth paintball event was so awesome! I want to thank all the youth/teens for coming out, I always have a blast with you all! Thank you to the Knights of Columbus who cooked and helped make this thing possible, and also a huge heartfelt thank you to the parents who helped us in any way, shape or form. God is never outdone in generosity.
After lunch, we talked about the Armor of God, from Ephesians, and how the very first line tells us to be “strengthened in the Lord,” because if left to our own self, we cannot give ourselves what we don’t possess - faith, peace, hope and love. “Put on the breastplate of righteousness,” to not only guard our hearts from what the world offers, a false peace, but having it prepared for the coming of Jesus at every encounter, every trial, every new day he offers us to fall deeper in love with Him. God bless you all.
In Mary’s arms,
Just a reminder for tonight’s event with Fr. Dan! We will be meeting from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at the Monastery Grill, in Mesa, Az. Here is the original post…
Struggling with your faith? Life a little overwhelming at times? Having some trouble finding community in the church? Well, step out of your ‘self’ for a night and come build another person up - that’s fulfillment. Come and build relationship with other young adults who are in the same struggle and share in the same love. Young Adult Night with Fr. Dan is for the purpose of solidarity: through Him, with Him and in Him - a Christ centered and joyful gathering. Catholic or Atheist, purple or pink - all are welcome!
We will be meeting on Monday, March 6th at the Monastery Bar and Grill in Mesa. This location offers ping pong, volleyball, cornhole, horseshoes, fire pits, and the option of grilling your own burgers or steaks. How cool is that? You can even bring your dog. Please be sure he doesn’t bite Fr. Dan. Peace and God bless! Can’t wait to see you! Have a blessed Lent!
May our Lord increase our desire for all things Holy!

Dear fellow Parishioners:
Hello my name is Agustín “Chacho” López and I am a student at Mesa Community College, as well as a staff member at St. Anne Roman Catholic Parish. This summer I have the wonderful opportunity to engage in a unique study abroad opportunity offered through Mesa Community College. The Mexico Study Abroad Program is a four-week academic program that offers academic coursework and a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about México and Mexican culture while living with a host family. This program also includes a pilgrimage to The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
I am excited for this opportunity to further my academic goals and to broaden my global perspective. While the cost of the program is relatively reasonable, I am still looking for funding to help make this unique opportunity a reality.
Your help could make this once in a lifetime opportunity a reality.
I would like to ask for a donation to help offset the cost of the trip. Any amount will help me, but I am looking for a minimum contribution of $100. This amount may be tax deductible to you or your organization. This would help me realize this educational opportunity, religious experience and it would also help create goodwill between neighboring countries. Please donate thru https://www.gofundme.com/kyh58258.
Thank you for your consideration of my request.
Agustín “Chacho” López
P.s. If you have any questions whatsoever about the program, you can contact the director, Mr. Jaime H. Herrera, professor of English at Mesa Community College.
