About St. Anne Parish
Stewardship—A Call to Serve the Lord
A Message from Fr. Brito
I am honored you have selected St. Anne's as your home parish. I hope you feel the warmth and love your fellow parishioners have been enjoying since 1942 when the church was built.
We take pride in the vitality of our faith and the quality of service we provide to our parishioners and the entire Santa Fe community through our Helping Hands ministry. We are committed to preaching the Gospel and serving the needs of the less fortunate.
Our Helping Hands ministry and feeding the homeless in Santa Fe are just a couple of examples of how our parishioners share their time and talent with others. We are a stewardship parish!
There are many ways of serving the Lord and giving back to our community. St. Anne Catholic Church depends on the generosity of our parishioners and pledges to use all our resources with integrity and faithfulness in serving God.
Stewardship of Time
In today's very busy world, it seems we never have enough "time". Giving of one's time for the benefit of others, not only is pleasing to the Lord our God, but you will feel great knowing your time was not wasted. There are many people in our community who need you. Consider spending time with those in a nursing home or hospital or becoming a extraordinary minister of holy communion to the homebound.
Stewardship of Talent
God has freely blessed us all with our individual gifts and talents. God also calls us to use our talents that they may be appreciated by all. Some of us can sing or play an instrument (choir), some of us teach (CCD, life teen), but all of us have a gift we can use to help others.
Stewardship of Treasure
Just as we are blessed with time and talents, so it is for our treasure. It all comes from God. Your generous contribution to our parish goes a long way. Your contributions not only pay for the day to day operation of the church, they fund our future by helping to educate our youth on our beautiful Catholic faith (CCD, Confirmation, Life Teen) and bringing new members into the church (RCIA, marriage preparation and baptism).
The satisfaction that comes from gratefully sharing your blessings of time, talent and treasure is tremendous. In addition to following God's will and providing your Church with the resources it needs to carry out the work of Jesus Christ here on earth, you may even find that you enjoy simple pleasures more fully and deepen your relationship with God, your family and your community.
