St. Anne is fortunate to have the loving and supportive parish pastor, Father Geoffrey Baraan. Also Father Mel Serraon is currently in residence at St. Anne. Festival Chairman Sonny Mamaril has been involved with the festival for many years and has the support of many volunteers including. Entertainment Chair Lorna Veluz, popular dance coach Johnny Veloso and Christopher Hernandez. St. Anne is very proud to have the support of a variety of ministries and groups.
