Social Ministry

Social Ministry at the Shrine of St. Anne is an ongoing activity throughout the year that provides assistance and fellowship to members of our parish, as well as to the immediate and extended community in Arvada and Colorado. We invite you to join us as a regular member or to participate in any of the following rewarding and important activities during the year.

To learn more, volunteer for specific programs or to become a member, please contact our ministry leader, Mark Komp.
Also, watch the church weekly bulletin for announcements and details of these support activities and more.

Easter Baskets
This is a fun event for the entire parish family - especially kids, providing families with a way to share with others during Easter. Social Ministries obtains donations and purchases items for the Easter baskets. Then we ask for parish volunteers to gather one evening, sort the many fun basket items, place them into Easter baskets and help deliver them to other recipient parishes and charitable programs. A lot of fun!

Migrant Workers

Each Spring and Summer St. Anne's supports a special project, interacting with Colorado's migrant workers in one of the northern counties. We usually seek donations for the hygiene kit program in May or June and we make a special trip north to join with migrant workers for Mass and dinner in a sharing experience.

Clothing Drive

In the Fall, the parish gathers hats and gloves and donates the articles of clothing  to Denver’s Samaritan House where they  are distributed to where the need is most. For this activity the entire parish is requested to provide donations and we ask for volunteers to assist us with sorting items into categories and bags, and finally with loading and unloading our vans and trucks on the final day of the campaign.

February Food Basket Program

Another great St. Anne's tradition, everyone is invited to donate special food requests and then assist us with putting together dinner baskets for delivery to families in need through the ARMS Food Pantry. We need volunteer sorters, packers, van loaders and deliverers for this vibrant activity!

Christmas Giving Tree

Join in this long-time St. Anne's tradition, helping us provide Christmas joy and presents to inner city parishes through our Christmas Giving Tree for children. We ask the entire parish to take a tag from the trees and provide appropriate new toys and gifts for children and teens. We can also use volunteers to help sort, pack and deliver the presents close to Christmas time! Great fun!

Arvada Religious Ministry (ARMs)

Several members of the St. Anne's Social Ministry group support special "ARMs" programs throughout the year, providing support for families and women in dire economic and social situations. We seek volunteers to support a food and shelter program in Arvada, which involves providing cooking services; overnight stays at the home to support families, and providing camaraderie and fellowship to those in need.

Shrine of St. Anne Employment Resource

We provide ongoing community focused resources for those seeking employment or career change, with special emphasis on local and nearby resources. Our kiosk with printed information is available at the south entrance to the church by the food donation center. Visit our employment web site at www
