The purpose of the Ladies' Auxiliary is faith, friendship, and service. The Ladies' Auxiliary provides the opportunity for wives, mothers, daughters, granddaughters, sisters, and widows of Knights of Columbus members to come together in fellowship with the primary goal of providing assistance to the St. Anne Knights of Columbus council. We also assist St. Anne and its community, and provide help to charitable organizations within the community of Gilbert.

We are SO EXCITED for this coming weekend for the Steubenville West Youth Conference in Tucson. I humbly invite all parishioners to please keep my teens and all attending this weekend of encounter in their prayers.
I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support that we have received. This weekend would not be possible without you! Count on our prayers as we worship our Lord throughout the weekend with thousands of teens.

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!

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!
