Judy Gaitan, along with their children, Andrew and Sara, want to share with us the passing of their beloved husband and father, Rudy. Rudy passed away on Thursday and it has been a great shock to Judy, Andrew and Sara. They ask for your prayers and support in the days to come.
Rudy was a lifelong parishioner of St. Anne and he and Judy raised their family here. Over the past 45 years we have had the joy of watching their family live, love and grow here in our parish. They have served our parish family so faithfully over these years. Rudy will be so greatly missed
Rudy’s viewing will take place here at St. Anne on Wednesday, June 20th at 6pm with Rosary to follow at 7pm. Funeral Mass will be on Thursday, June 21st at 11am. Internment will follow the Mass at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Mesa.
A funeral luncheon will follow the internment at St. Anne Parish Hall.
Eternal rest grant unto Rudy, O Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon him…
The Knights of Columbus along with United Blood Services are holding a blood drive at St. Anne’s Church hall on Sunday July 8, 2018, from 7:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon. If you are interested in donating blood contact Ron Gengler @ 480-332-5754 to set up an appointment or you may go on-line at www.Bloodhero.com (Sponsor code: StAnne). We will also be recruiting outside the Church on the weekends of 6/24/18 & 6/31/18 after the Saturday and Sunday morning Masses, so you can stop by and sign-up.

Greetings in Christ,
BATTLE Camp 2018 for 5th-8th grade youth is here again! June 18-22, from 8am to 12pm in the church hall! We will be following the theme from this year’s VBS - Journey to Babylon.
Our week long camp consists of teachings, activities & crafts, small groups and snacks for the youth. For the 3rd year now, I have not charged a fee for this event, but I do humbly rely on your generous donations to provide snacks for my kids. Please consider donating to help us live out this amazing week.
Here is a link to register. This way I can have an approximate headcount. Also, I will add another post for items (snacks) that we will need. Thank you so much, friends. Please pray for our youth.
Our Paintball Event, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, was again a success! Many new smiling faces that joined us today – Blessed be God! I gave them a teaching from the Divine Mercy devotion on Spiritual Warfare, which Christ gave to St. Faustina. I told them that the formula for sainthood is perseverance through our failures and trust in our Lord Jesus Christ, that He walks with them always and that they are never alone! A special thank you to all who helped out and supported us – Knights of Columbus, Ladies Auxiliary, The Crossley family!
