Meet Fr. Noel Ancheta, Parochial Vicar

07-16-2017Fr. Noel Ancheta

I am Fr. Noel Padua Ancheta from the Diocese of Romblon in the Philippines. I was born January 3, 1962. The fourth child of Abner and Eva Ancheta who were both US citizens but now settled in the Philippines. I have five siblings, two of which are residing here in Arizona. I finished my AB Philosophy degree at St. Pius X Seminary in Roxas City Philippines, and theology at the University of Sto. Tomas in Manila. I was ordained to the priesthood on September 2, 1988 and was assigned as Pastor of three parishes in Romblon and as a Rector of San Lorenzo Ruiz College Seminary in Romblon.

Last year my petition as an immigrant was approved after ten years of waiting. I am happy to be accepted to minister in the Diocese of Phoenix and fortunately assigned here at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne here at Anthem Arizona. I am overwhelmed by the welcome and support accorded me by Fr. Bing Colasito the Pastor and parishioners. This is a positive sign that God manifests his love and presence in this lively community. I will try my best to compensate the goodness of these people by living a holy life as shown by Jesus the Good Shepherd.

Please pray for me as I exercise my ministry in this part of the world. May we all work and pray for the growth of God’s kingdom and use our talents for his greater honor and glory. God bless us all.
