Extraordinary ministers of holy Communion are responsible for handling and distributing the holy Eucharist, primarily during Mass. There are also extraordinary ministers of holy Communion that are involved in bringing the holy Eucharist to those that are not able to attend Mass at church (see Ministry of Care).

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…
Greetings, all! Thank you all so much for your participation in our Farewell Party for Fr. David and Fr. Dan! Your love and care for them was so evident in all that you did! So glad that we could send them off to their new callings with such affection and love!

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the passing of Jim Elia. Jim passed away peacefully this afternoon at his home surrounded by his family. Please keep Jim and his family in your prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto Jim, O Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon him.
A huge thank you to all who helped in any way to send our dear friend, Jim, homeward! So blessed to be in a community that loves one another with such care and compassion.
Please keep Joanne and Dena, Judy and Tom and Mary in your prayers during this time of grief and mourning.
Requiescat in pace, Jim!
As you may already know, the funeral Mass for Joan Elia, Jim’s wife, will be on Monday, January 22nd at 10am. There will be a reception immediately following the internment in the parish hall. The Funeral Ministry needs our assistance with the reception. We are providing the reception to Jim and his family in gratitude for their long years of service to our community. We are hoping that everyone would be willing to contribute a dish for the reception. No need for fancy—just comfort food for us to share as we support Jim and his daughters and remember Joan. We are expecting about 100 guests to attend. Please fill in a need listed below if you will be able to assist in any way.
Food can be dropped off in the parish hall on Monday morning.
