CAUGHT IN THE ACT
All of St. Anne’s thanks Lorene Harris for cleaning the church while we are without a custodian. This includes the men’s and women’s bathrooms! Our church would not be nearly as inviting without all of Lorene’s hard work. Thank you!
ST. ANNE’S GARAGE SALE
The garage sale is coming on June 14-15 from 8:00 to noon! Please remember the St. Anne’s garage sale when you are doing your Spring cleaning! Contact Lorene Harris if you have any questions.
COLLECTIONS FOR THE ANKENY SERVICE CENTER
On the 4th Sunday of every month St. Anne’s will be taking a special collection for the Ankeny Service Center. The Ankeny Service coordinates human services and referrals for the residents of Ankeny and Northern Polk County. Their areas of emphasis are: coordination of services, youth, families and seniors. We will be passing a red bucket for these donations. All checks should be made out to the Ankeny Service Center. The first collection day will be TODAY. Thank you for your generosity!

The Neighbor to Neighbor meal will be on Sunday, May 26 with serving beginning at 5:00. We will be setting up starting at 4:00. The menu is 4 cheese mac and cheese and broccoli. We need salads, desserts and rolls. We invite everyone to join us for dinner and seven hands of bingo.
Thank you to everyone who donated diapers or cash for diapers on Mother’s Day. There were 1019 diapers donated which were delivered to IMPACT (DMARC Food Pantry) here in Ankeny. Most babies use eight diapers a day so this means St. Anne’s has covered 127 baby days. Thank you, thank you.
