Acción Católica es un grupo de apostolado que depende del instituto secular Servi Trinitatis, en otras palabras, es un grupo que la Iglesia ha encomendado a través de su jerarquía al instituto secular Servi Trinitatis. Siendo el apostolado de los laicos y la fidelidad al Papa dos de las finalidades de Servi Trinitatis, se entiende que asume, de un modo particular la llamada de la iglesia a promover el apostolado de los laicos, que es lo que es Acción Católica, dondequiera que se desarrolle. De esta manera, Servi Trinitatis contribuye al laicado buscando su camino hacia la santidad siendo fiel al Evangelio, desarrollando su actividad en todo el mundo y con el propósito de ganar almas para Cristo. En este momento el instituto secular Servi Trinitatis está desarrollando su apostolado en la parroquia de Santa Ana en Gilbert, Arizona.

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.
Friends, Help Our Teens Reach The Steubenville Conference in July 2018! Please Donate To Make a Difference!
Greetings in Christ,
Friends, there is no other quote that better describes the desire in the heart of our teens today than this:
“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.” – JP2
I humbly ask that you consider sponsoring a teen for this retreat in July. We need help. It’s been more than 5 years since they have encountered something this big outside of their own parish. Some have never even experienced a retreat outside of St. Anne.
Please consider making this commitment for a teen. If the desire even crosses your mind, see it as an invitation of our Lord to make a sacrifice for His church. The Lord is never outdone in generosity. “Love until it hurts,” says Saint Mother Teresa. God bless you.
"Some give freely, yet grow all the richer; others withhold what is due, and only suffer want." Proverbs 11:24
Sponsor a teen – $50

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!
Greetings in Christ!
On Monday, April 23rd, come hang out and grab a bite to eat with Fr. Dan and Fr. Chris Axline, parochial administrator of our neighboring parish - St. Mary Magdalene. All young adults from ages 21 to 35 are welcome for a night of discussion and fellowship. This is a great opportunity to build community and encounter authentic friendships, or to learn more about your faith by asking our priests those questions that have been in your heart. We hope to see you there! God bless.
