Greetings, All! As you have heard, Fr. David and Fr. Dan are both leaving our St. Anne family this summer to embark on new and beautiful adventures with God -Fr. David at the end of May and Fr. Dan in mid-June. Fr. David will be returning to his beloved Ghana to serve in his home diocese of Tamale and Fr. Dan will be assuming new duties as pastor at St. Timothy’s in Mesa.
On Wednesday, May 23rd at 5:30pm they will be offering a special Mass of Thanksgiving, followed by a potluck in the hall. Everyone is invited to attend both events, but please come when you can to share some time with them.
The potluck will be held in the parish hall following the Mass. In order to be certain we have a variety of yummy foods to share, we are asking for donations based on category and the first initial of your last name. Please be sure your item is easy to share and serve!
A – C – Appetizers: chips & dips, cheese tray, deli tray, fruit tray, bite-sized goodies
D – G – Salads: tossed salad with dressing, potato, macaroni, pasta, bean, fruit
H – K – Side Dishes: rice, beans, potatoes, vegetables, macaroni & cheese
L – M – Breads: dinner rolls, tortillas, biscuits, cornbread, scones, muffins
N – S – Meats/Cheese: Casseroles, fried chicken, shredded beef or chicken, sliced cold meats, tamales, chili, meatballs, hot dogs, pizza
T – Z – Desserts: cookies, brownies, fruit, easy to serve tasty treats
Paper products and beverages are being provided by the catechists and volunteers at CGS.
Due to our limited ability to keep foods hot or cold, please plan to bring your item in an insulated container that can keep it at the needed temperature. We are also asking that if possible, for ease of cleanup after the potluck, items be brought in disposable containers. A disposable serving utensil for your item would be a great help.
Food may be dropped off in the parish hall beginning at 4pm on Wednesday, 5/23. We would be very grateful to those who can remain to help with cleanup!
Many have asked about gifts for Fr. David and Fr. Dan. As you can imagine, neither of these good shepherds has requested anything but our prayers!
There will be an opportunity for you to fill out a prayer intention for them at the potluck or you can bring yours ready to place in the Spiritual Bouquet at the potluck.
If you would like to bring a card or letter for Fr. David or Fr. Dan, there will be a secure place for you to leave them. Please — especially for Fr. David — no gifts that will need to be shipped or transported. Shipping is very expensive and Fr. David is uncertain where he will be serving when he arrives at home. As we know, there are always needs in any parish or community, so if you feel called to support them financially in their new adventures, it would be a great blessing.
Thank you so much for all the love that you show to our priests. Looking forward to a great celebration!

Our week long camp consists of teachings, activities & crafts, small groups and snacks for the youth.

Please consider donating to help us live out this amazing week.
